I am using a iMac with OS 10.7.5 and Finale 2012c./ VDL 2.5.5 and the 2012a1 template package.
I'm working on a collaboration with a horn arranger who sends me a master score that he has written on a PC
with the normal apple soft synth horn parts. His finale files are emailed to me and I have to change the file to AU format
and add the percussion parts for a complete master score for marching band. We finished our opener without a hitch but now
when I started to work on the second part of our show, non of the percussion maps are generating sound. This is with playback
as well as input, no sound. I opened a older file that was written last year and the minute I choose to use the FIN12_VDL255 maps,
I no longer get any playback. All of the files are in their proper folders and they instruments show up as you scroll for input but just no
sound is being activated.
Just for clarification, I am not using a VDL template because the band director wants all of our parts to be done on the same score and wants
a full audio mp3 with both wind, pit, and batterie parts. I could use the finale tapspace lite sounds and their maps but our show has a lot more
percussion needs that the finale sounds are capable of producing. I am using and tried both Kontakt 4 as well as 5 full versions. The samplers
have the correct files loaded and they produce sound when manually triggering sounds just not when finale sends info using the VDL maps.
I have 16G ram and a 3.0 dual core processor and everything was working two weeks ago. I try to re-download and reinstall the template package. The Finale people are stumped as well.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
