TapSpace Instruments & Percussion MIDI Maps

Finale includes a library of more than 100 TapSpace Virtual Drumline instrument sounds.

When you choose a TapSpace instrument in Finale's Setup Wizard, Finale loads the TapSpace sound libraries into the Aria Player automatically and assigns the staff to the corresponding percussion MIDI map.

To assign TapSpace Instruments to an existing staff, note the staff's channel in the ScoreManager. Then, open the Aria Player to assign the desired TapSpace Instrument to that channel. Then, apply the corresponding percussion layout to the staff. Finale includes percussion layouts designed for TapSpace Instruments accessible from the Percussion Layout Selection dialog box. Review the Percussion Layout Designer dialog box to reference the specific instrument mapping for each sound.

All MIDI Note-to-instrument mappings are listed in the Percussion MIDI Map Editor dialog box.
