Unfortunately I do not yet know how to make a percussion map work. I will study the instructions again. There are many GWI instruments with expression or articulation possibilities which ought to be available from Finale, but they only appear in Aria. Thanks for the suggestion. I hope I find out how to make it work. After making each note fit a channel, how would I specify that channel from the score? All assignments seem to be global, not incidental. Other VSTi instruments also have parameters which could be useful if they could be accessed from the score or part in Finale. Does Finale have a way to use the "Expression" parameters in the latest VST 3 instruments?
