Setting Up A Patch Change On Playback

These instructions tell you how to create an expression marking that produces a patch (Preset) change during playback of Magnus Choir VSTi. The following information is only applicable for Finale 2012. For Finale 2014 click here, For Finale 2011 click here and Finale 2010 here. For Finale PrintMusic 2011 here.

  1. Click the Expression tool  image\Expression_Tool.gif.

  2. Click on, above, or below the note at which you want the patch to change. The Expression Selection dialog box appears. If you’ve previously created the patch change marking, double-click it.

  3. Select Dynamics and Click Create. The Expression Designer dialog box appears.

  4. Go to Playback box, then Type and select Patch. Below  Go to   (“To Clarinet,” for example). You can label the patch change any way you like, or you can leave the text box empty (if you want no graphic marking at all).

  5. Click the Playback tab. The playback options appear.

  6. Choose Type > Patch.

  7. The Patch drop-down list appears, choose the type of patch change needed, select the appropriate Bank and Program changes. For example in GM type the Magnus Choir preset number that you wish (i.e. 44 Contrabass for 44 Vinyl Choir). See here the Magnus Choir full presets list numbers to assign the equivalent to each General MIDI (GM) number.

  9. Click OK or Select or Assign in each dialog box until you return to the document. Depending on your playback settings, you may need to begin playback at a measure prior to the patch change for it to take effect. To avoid this problem you can set Finale to “chase” the patch changes up to the point where you’re beginning playback. That is, Finale will quickly scan the piece all the way from the first measure, noting (and transmitting to your MIDI keyboard) any patch changes along the way, so that playback always begins using the current patch.

  10. Note: No matter what the “GM” shows you, i.e. # 44 “Contrabass” because it’s GENERAL MIDI numbers. In fact, the number 44 in Magnus Choir responds to “Vinyl Choir” as in the example.

Expressions are markings that tell the performer how to interpret (or express) a musical passage. In Finale, expressions are generally symbols or text placed above or below the staff (see Expressions). Dynamic markings, tempo indications, expressive text, technique text, and rehearsal marks are all generally added as expressions. Expressions have the ability to adjust according to spacing changes in the music. For example, when you apply music spacing changes, expressions will move to the appropriate position in the measure. Like chords and lyrics, all expressions can be set to snap to a baseline so they are aligned at the same distance above or below the staff.
