I am running Finale 2014.5 on a 2017 MacBook Air running MacOS High Sierra with 1.8GHz processor and 8GB of ram. I developed the file I am working on using the default SoftSynth. All of the dynamics including hairpins played back as they were supposed to. When I switched to playback through Garritan Instruments for Finale, I assigned different Player variations to different layers.
Now, the playback does not follow any dynamics. I switch from "Play Finale Through Audio Units" to "Play Finale Through MIDI", and the MIDI playback does not follow dynamics. I try it with both HP set to "Standard" and set to "None" with no change. I have checked and the dynamics are written for every layer. HP Preferences are set to "Default" including "Optimize Attacks for Garritan Libraries". I have deleted the Finale Preferences file and restarted. I cleared all MIDI data. I have created a new document and copied everything from the old document into it, and there is no change. I open the file on a different computer and there is no change.
Can anyone think of how to resolve this?
