Choose this command to automatically assign
In addition to choosing this command, Finale also reassigns sounds to all Instruments when starting a new document with the Setup Wizard, and when choosing MIDI/Audio > Play Finale Through
If you open a document that includes Instruments that have been assigned to sounds not available on the computer, the following warning message appears: "Missing
Sounds are assigned to individual Instruments (using the same mechanism) when adding or changing Instruments in the ScoreManager.
When auto-assigning sounds, Finale reserves channel 10 on bank 1 for percussion to accommodate MIDI devices that require channel 10 for percussion sounds. If, for example, you added a percussion Instrument in the Setup Wizard, and then attempted to play through an external MIDI device that reserves channel 10 for percussion, the percussion Instrument would play correctly. The second percussion Instrument added to bank 1 is assigned to the next consecutive available channel. Banks other than 1 do not reserve a channel for percussion automatically. If Finale's automatic channel assignments for percussion, or any instrument, do not work for a device, you can change the channel manually in the ScoreManager.
