What it does
When Finale converts a file from Finale 2009 or earlier, it uses MIDI note information based on General MIDI mapping to determine the proper Finale 2012 . Use this utility to reconvert note types based on a different mapping if you find that the note types assigned to a converted percussion layout do not represent your desired sounds. See Percussion MIDI Maps.
- Select a Percussion Layout to Update. From this pop-up menu, choose the percussion layout you would like to update. All percussion layouts can be referenced in the Percussion Layout Designer dialog box.
- Current Note Types are Based On. This indicates the original percussion layout.
- Change Note Types Based on This Percussion MIDI Map. From this pop-up menu, choose the Percussion MIDI Map you would like to apply to the selected percussion layout. Select the Percussion MIDI Map that matches the playback (and/or input) device for which the percussion layout was originally created.
