I recently purchased your templates after updating Finale from and OLD version and have using old VDL1 templates and maps.
I am pretty sure I set everything up as per instructions, however not all note are being placed correctly. I am hearing the correct sound, just not seeing in on the correct staff.
For instance, Bass drum unisons. They show up on the bottom line of the staff, not as the slash headed note on the center line of the staff. Other notes map on the staff correctly however.
I saw in another question thread about needing to assign the layout selection in addition to the percussion midi map. I have the percussion midi map set up and VDL maps selected. However, when I open the layout selection, there are no options that reference anything about VDL255. Guessing that's where things are going wrong? bassline is selected there, but again, it doesn't say specifically VDL 255 bassline.
I was working out of a score I had copied and pasted wind parts into. Thinking that might have thrown something off, I tried opening a clean template file. The instruments map correctly now on the correct lines of the staves, HOWEVER, I can not get any sounds on that new clean file I started.
