Like the post below, I m bedeviled with trying to get a playable expression in Finale, in my case fp. Human Playback reads all the other expressions I've got, but not that particular expression (it's kind of important in strings). If I use a MIDI controller, and execute a shape, using modulate or expression, the fp works, but the result is permanent - no other dynamic marking has any further effect on volume and those voices are permanently stuck at p. Even if I 'rewind' to the beginning, the controller remains stuck.
I am not liking having to spend more time futzing around with this than actually writing music!
