    Finale 2008 - Strad & Gofriller Setup txt files

    Hi All,

    I'm trying to get the Strad & Gofriller setup in Finale 2008.

    So far, so good.

    However...

    I need the instrument.txt files for these so they will
    show up in the Wizard setup instrument list.

    I apologize if I'm duplicating requests elsewhere -- I'd swear I saw this
    somewhere, but I've been chasing around the forum for two hours without
    finding the information... not that's anything new for me -- I have the
    same problem with matching socks.

    Many thanks

    StradivariViolin.txt

    I don't know the text file for the Gofriller. Maybe you can create it yourself based on the Stradivari file. You'll find the Library number in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Native Instruments\Content in the registry (on a PC).

    Many many thanks, Nickie! The Strad .txt file worked fine.

    I also got the 'cello working.

    The weird thing is -- the 'cello sounds one octave lower than writ in Finale. Any clue why that is?

    Here's what I have in the 'cello .txt file:

    [VSTINFO]
    Name = Gofriller Cello
    PluginID = NiP2
    PlayerChannels = 16
    LibraryID = 116

    [INS:GofrillerCello1]
    DisplayName = Gofriller Cello for Finale
    InstType = SingleCello
    Patch = 42
    SampleFile = The Gofriller Cello v.3.02 for Finale.nki

    [INS:GofrillerCello2]
    DisplayName = Gofriller Cello
    InstType = SingleCello
    Patch = 42
    SampleFile = The Gofriller Cello v.3.02.nki

    [GRP:Gofriller Cello]
    Name = Gofriller Cello
    Abbr = Cello
    GofrillerCello1 = x
    GofrillerCello2 = x

    All my best,



    David

    The Finale version should be at concert pitch. That it isn't, is a bug.

    Just create an invisible expression that moves everything 8va until you guys find a fix.

    It is not quite that simple. When you enter notes in the lowest octave, you don't hear anything, because those notes are KeySwitches.

    I thought it might have been something I screwed up
    in the .txt file...

    It's easy enough to get around this in Finale by setting
    a staff transposition in Staff Attributes, of course.

    Thanks again for the assist on this, Nickie.

    My best,

    It won't help you when you enter notes, but at least you'll get playback right. Just be aware, that when you enter notes in the lowest octave you will hit KeySwitches. This may affect playback.

    I can't believe we're still dealing with this issue. First with Finale 2007d (the one that never was), and now 2008??? Come on!

    This is not MM's fault. It is a bug in the Gofriller.
