This question is for other finale users.
What do you generally set the volume levels at (in the instrument list and/or mixer). I find that it's very difficult to create decent balance. For example, I've used both piccolo trumpets in a piece before and the SAM one is really strong and the other one....well, let's just say, one could more easily hear a muted harpsichord in a soundproofed room in a distant galaxy far, far away... OK, so it's not nearly that bad, but I'd like to know what volume levels people use for instruments, because I can never seem to find the right volume levels. I tend to use the brass, percussion, and organ a lot, so those would be the most helpful (especially the overlays), but strings and winds would be nice, too (especially the clarinets, they're always so loud compared to everything else).
I use 2009c, but I'm pretty sure the volume settings would have the same effect in any version of Finale.
