Howdy.  Using Finale 2009, I have imported a few midi's that have a mandolin voice involved.  The file is imported fine and plays; however, while the the instument is shown to be a Mandolin,  the second line which shows the actual voice (instrument) being used, shows the instrument selected as a fiddle. Clicking the dropdown menu beside the fiddle, the total list of instruments available doe NOT show a mandolin as being available.  That is strange because you can set up a default file using a mandolin with no problem.  What is it that I am  not understanding? 
Thanks gang.   Ray Phillips, USN Retired  :-)

Another "bump the spammer off the front page" post. Man, they're getting worse. I hope your mandolin question gets answered, Ray.

Hi Ray,

When Finale's setup wizard creates a mandolin staff it uses the Acoustic Gutiar (steel) sound as it's the closest sound match in the included GM list of sounds. In your imported file go to Windows>Instrument List and change the mandolin staff playback to Acoustic Gutiar (steel) for the same effect. It's not perfect, but it's closer than fiddle!

I hope this helps,

Scott
