Percussion MIDI Maps: Tapspace Drumline for Finale

Finale includes a library of more than 100 Tapspace Virtual Drumline instrument sounds. To assign VDL sounds 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.
