I recently upgraded to Finale 26 and it has messed up my template completely.
All the sound maps with VDL 2.5 are fine, but the play back is all screwed up (everything sounds like buzz rolls for snares, quads sound like wood blocks and cow bells, etc.) and worse - my note input is not working.
Ex: on my MIDI keyboard, I use F# and G# for left hand/right hand hits on snare. The correct sound comes out but when I go to input the note it shows up as an F# or G#, like keyboard music.
I have a message into Finale and several calls to Makemusic but so far it has been fruitless.
