I need to know how to set up Finale and/or my Roland XP-80 in order for Finale to play multiple sounds off of my keyboard at once. I see that there is an instrument list in which you can select differing instruments, MIDI channels, and program changes for each staff. However, when I play the piece back, all staves use whatever instrument my keyboard is on in that particular performance, rather than using a combination of 16 total instruments in that performance. What do I need to do?|

There are several options.|
(1) set your XP80 to GM mode, load the GM library in Finale, assign the appropriate library instruments to your staves and there you go
-> that's the easiest and fastest way
(2) set you XP80 to performance mode, create new Finale instruments (these are data packages which tell your XP80 to switch a performance's part to the desired patch) and assign these instruments to your staves. Save this library.
-> That's the most flexible way as you can use the library for other documents as well
(3) set your XP80 to performance mode and create a new performance for each piece you want to play back. Create Finale instruments which make a staff send its data on a specific MIDI channel, but make it not send out patch selection data like MSB/LSB and program change messages. Set up the performance within the XP80: select your patches in the "part" submenu, set volume, panorama, effects, tuning, etc.
-> That's the way which will give you the best musical results
I'm using a JV1080 myself (which is the XP80's rack version), a Korg Triton and a Yamaha S80 for which the same options are valid.
