Is it possible to change the volume of individual staves in a grand staff using dynamics, the mixer tab, or in Aria player?
Windows 11, Finale v.26
The mixer in Aria is affected by dynamics sent to it by your Finale score (MIDI). If you want to set starting levels to try to balance instruments against each other (important since Aria instruments are not all sampled at the same volume an orchestra would give), you should use the Finale Mixer to set those base levels. Dynamics within Finale should do the rest.
In other words, I do not use the Aria Mixer for anything in Finale. I do, however, sometimes use the Controls and the Effects sections, and in Dorico one can use a version of the player to assign separate output channels to different faders in the Dorico Mixer, but that is not necessary in Finale.
