Do you have a GPO for dummies tutorial?
I am using Finale 2006 which comes with GPO and the Kontakt Player.
In reading some of the posts here, I realize that I don't understand using mod wheels and program changes, etc, etc, within this environment. I also realize I have no documentation on GPO or Kontakt that I can see! I understand MIDI basics and understand Finale and how it interacts with GPO from a notation level (eg how articulation markings -- at least the common ones -- affect GPO. But there is alot missing.
So my general question is: is there somewhere on this forum that explains things like:
When you say "CCx" where x is a controller number, how do I change that within the above environment, and (most importantly) where can I find a list of all the GPO instruments with the effects of each CC value?
How can I load another instrument into the Kontakt player -- and what is the relationship between channel and instrument? Is this documented anywhere? I keep getting into this mess of changing the instrument on a staff through Finale/Kontakt, but another instrument changes as well because (I think) it is on the same channel? I realize that some of this is more Finale or more Kontakt, or just plain digital music basics, but I am unclear where one begins and the other ends. Any pointers to helpful material much appreciated.
I will get you that midi file for the flute question also.
