Finale v 26

Hello,

Very new to the Garritan pipe organ software.  I have learned how to create banks and all three organ staffs to appear at score manager.  With stops assigned to three banks I go to score manager.  I assigned Bank 1 to first staff and second staff, a simple composition of strings on keyboards and 4' reed in pedal.  When I assign bank 3 to the pedal staff, all three staffs change to bank 3.  Any solutions?

Each staff should have its own midi channel (to be defined in the ScoreManager and in a similar way in the Aria Player).

Michel,

Thank you for your responding.  I was able to get the three staffs to appear in ScoreManager:  Using Aria Player under Garritan.  At the moment I have:

Name:           Organ

Device:         Garritan Instruments for Finale

                           Sound                                 Bank       Channel

               Organ      (mixed)                         Bank and Channel are a solid blue

               Staff 1      Hauptwerk all stops         2                 1

               Staff 2      Hauptwerk all stops         1                 1

               Staff 3      Hauptwerk all stops         1                 1

 

Under Audio>Banks and Effects:

             Bank 1      Classical   Flute 8'

             Bank 2      Mod 2       Choir Gemshorn 8'

             Bank 3      Mod 2:      Swell Rohr Schalmei 4'

 

Notes: 

1.  At one time I did have the Hauptwerk all stops in the mix and on a different composition.

2.  I created a new instrument, organ, and the Hauptwerk all stops is the sound that came with it.

3.  I now have lost Bank 1 and going to the score it is now with staff 1 missing.

Michel,

 

The second Instrument: Organ  line states Banks 4, 5 and 6--even with first Organ having lost staff/bank 1.

The loss of the top line of music appeared yesterday, too.  Any idea why that should happen?

 

Looking forward to your responses.

All staves use Midi Channel 1. Give each staff a different midi channel if you want different sounds.

Oh, I just realized I left off a rather significant detail:  I am attempting to use the current issue of Garritan Pipe Organ software, not a MIDI.  I do have a MIDI to the organ at church, a 1988 Rodgers 770 two manual fully loaded with complete set of pistons, toe studs and zymbelstern.  In fact, one of the designers of the organ, George Kirkwood, came from Hillsboro, OR to Friday Harbor, WA (60 miles north of Seattle, 20 miles west then hour ferry ride) to help design this church for potential pipe organ before construction which didn't come nor any pipe augmentation but it is a better sounding electronic for its day.  The 1' flute is pearcing to the ear which makes that stop sound real.  The voix celeste is really good, too. Ironically, the design required putting the organ bench under the shelf for holding future pipes and speakers sounding over that resulting with the bench in the softest place in the room.

Apparently, when using Garritan Instruments as my Device I have the option at the Score Manager>Instrument List to select which of the 16 channels in a selected bank I want to use as a solo stop but I need groups of stops, not solo.  If my Device is Aria Player, I can select stops for the Bank while in Score Manager, as well.

Adrian!  That's cool.  I didn't think of it that way:  Stuck with bank per keyboard! 

 

Well, that works for one piece and other simple pieces.  How would you address something complicated like Vierne's Third Organ Symphony Finale?

 

Impressed by your advanced computer use.  I am one step into their capacity:  basic word, Excel, some on Finale is it.

Oh, I made the changes and it works!  Much grateful.  Now I can go to some of the other compositions to see what damage I can do there!  HA HA HA

Terry,

 

You have two threads about pretty much the same subject running simultaneously. It would be far less confusing if you stuck to just one from now on. Glad I could help. I left some additional info about multi-instrument combinations on your other thread.
