Changing Program from Glock to Combo Rack

Hello -

I am trying to arrange some tambourine music for a glock player and also have playback.  I've tried the staff style and staff expression solutions but to no avail.

I am using a macbook pro (8gb ram), Finale 2010 and VDL 2.5.

Any suggestions on how to switch the patch back and forth from glock to combo rack B?
Yes, this is fixed now in Finale 2011.
From www.makemusic.com regarding Finale 2011:

";Expanded Percussion Playback
Last year we simplified the process of getting notes on percussion staves to look ��� and playback ��� exactly the way you want them to. This year Finale 2011 makes it easy to switch between pitched and non-pitched percussion anywhere in your score";
You can make it work if it is a simple map, same as before in 09 and previous.  For something more complicated like the Rack Combo unfortunately, you will run into some problems.

This is something that MakeMusic is aware about, and will hopefully be included in a future update.

You unfortunately can't currently switch between pitched and unpitched instruments in Finale 2010. That's one caveat of the new percussion layout system.  Perhaps it will find its way into 2011.

However, pitched to pitched and unpitched to unpitched works fine.
