Hello. I have had GPO for less than a week and am trying to convert an older Finale 2004 file into 2006 and get it setup for playback in GPO, and have figured everything out except general percussion. I have read the tutorials (including the new one that came with the recent patch) but am still not sure that I understand it correctly. So please help a guy out and either confirm that I'm on the right track or tell me I'm stupid and correct me.
As I understand it, in order to get the general percussion to work, I need to have it setup on Channel 10, with the GPO Basic Orch Percussion loaded into Player #1 in the Finale MIDI setup, and set that player to Channel 10?
Then I have to duplicate the Standard MIDI playback percussion map in Finale and edit it to match the GPO notes before anything will playback correctly?
Since I had already assigned all of the other 23 instruments in the piece before getting to the percussion, I am hesitant to undo everything else just to get the percussion working unless I know 100% that I am doing it the right way - I'd hate to undo everything only to waste a lot of time on something wrong...
So am I reading the tutorials correctly or am I wofully confused?
