I'm writing a piece in Finale. End result will be 5 staves: 4 woodwinds and 1 percussion. Some of the percussion sounds I want are in the GPO basic orchestral percussion patch; others are in the toys patch. Problem: switching between the two percussion patches while keeping it all on one staff. When I set up to switch patches via a MIDI channel change, the subsequent notation looks wrong. Is there a different/better way to achieve the desired result?
I asked this on the Finale forum but have received no replies. Maybe one of you can help?
