|It's been a while since I did this. Using Finale 2000 a few years ago I purchased a new soundfont library. I had the SB LIVE soundcard installed. I had to read through Creative's SB documentation on how to install the soundfont. In windows (I don't remember exactly where) I switched the generic GM files with the new soundfont files. Finale played back whatever was assigned to the GM sounds.|

|I have used soundfonts and soundblaster cards since the AWE32, passing through the original SBLive! card and now using Audigy Platinum.|
I've never had a problem -- use the soundfont loader in the Creative control panel to load soundfonts into the soundcard. If you are trying to load other sounds ontop of a GM basic soundbank, you will need to use the bank/patch numbers in Finale, but if you are simply loading a better GM soundfont you're all set. You need to pay attention to be sure you are loading your soundfont in to either SynthA or SynthB of the Audigy, so you can select the appropriate output device in your midi devices dialogue.
Then be sure to select the appropriate synth (A or B, NOT the CreativeSW synth, and NOT the Audigy Midi Out port).
I've never had a problem using Finale in this manner. Have you run midi output from other programs such as a sequencer through your Audigy card so you're sure you have the soundfonts loaded correctly? Is it really a Finale problem or could it be an Audigy problem? I will be glad to offer further assistance, feel free to e-mail me off-forum if you wish: [email protected] and I'll see what I can do to help.
