I have a full orchestra set up using Finale and the full version of GPO and everything works great.
One major problem I am having, however, is mapping percussion from Finale to GPO. There is no option for "Full GPO General Percussion" on the Finale side--only an option to map to the included cut-down version of GPO.
I have tried using the the cut-down Finale/GPO Percussion map, but it only partially corresponds to the percussion instruments in GPO's "General Orchestral Percussion" list. Some work; some don't.
For example, I can put the base drum and Tam tam on any staff position I like and they playback correctly, but snare drums wander around at random and never stay when I located them.
Thanks for any help. I know this marriage of full GPO and Finale is new and we're all learning as we go.
