Windows 10, Finale 26
So, thanks to many responses, I finally have been able to get better grasp on using percussion. I have the COMB and JABB libraries, and the World libraries as well.
My problem right now is trying to access all of those wonderful sounds for playback. Not doing to well.
And, then, when I do get playback, often the volume levels are too weak to hear them in an ensemble. I put the Mixer slider to full, and even use the Expression Tool to mark some instruments at ffff (four Fs) without any change.
Great tips have been to use the Utilities/Change Instrument..., and then to follow-up more specifically in Score Manager.
The other has been to use Utilities/Transpose Percussion...
Nevertheless, problems persist, especially in trying to use those World sounds.
Meanwhile, here are two screen captures relating to the volume problem.
As always, any and all help is greatly welcomed!!
P.S. The volume column here shows 101, but even when I change it here to 127, it makes no difference.
