    JABB Snare Missing in Finale 2008 Setup Wizard

    In Finale 2008 Setup Wizard, the snare of the JABB Jazz Drum Set is missing. The Piccolo Snare is there. I emphasise that this is just in the Setup Wizard and that this snare is, of course, present in the player.

    I know this is a minor thing and the workaround is easy. We can simply add the Piccolo Snare when setting up the score then in Finale's MIDI VST menu swop this for the snare.

    A small hiccup but I thought I would just mention it.

    maybe it's missing from the .TXT file?
    if so that should be a relatively easy fix, no?

    Hello Michel,

    I tried editing the .txt file but it didn't work.

    I copied the entry for the Piccolo Snare and pasted this then I changed the name to the snare using the exact same name as it's listed in the player.

    It could be that something must be added to the .dll file .. I don't know.

    An updated GarritanJazzinstrument-K2.txt for those, who don't like to edit it themselves.

    ok, so Finale automatically selects the correct staff-style and puts the instrument name when you choose an instrument from the wizard...
    do you know WHERE tha information is in the .TXT file?

    now we can select the JABB snare drum, but it doesn't get automatically set up as a snare drum, which is still a nice feature in Finale. I've tried a number of things, but it doesn't seem to want to set up that staff properly.

    Michel is right.

    I tried my own edited file and Nickie's file and the snare is in Finale's Setup wizard. When the drum instruments are loaded individually, the snare title is missing in the score and it has a treble clef stave. The snare is loaded in the KP2 .. but .. there are now four instances of KP2 loaded just for 5 instruments.

    Looks like my workaround stays for the moment methinks.
