I have been working on a large-scale vocal/orchestral composition in Finale 2006 for some time and have orchestrated half of it using a Kurzweil K2500 + a collection of sound fonts.  I recently purchased GPO and JABB and want to expand my range of sounds by using intruments from both GPO and JABB.  I currently have assigned MIDI Channels 1-16 to the K2500, and 49-64 to my Soundblaster card for the sound fonts.  I am currently using some of the SoftSynth fonts as well.  Having just sprung for a new computer to support GPO and JABB, I really cannot afford to spring for a crossgrade to Kontakt 2.0 (full version) at this time.  How can I add GPO and JABB voices to my score without having to transpose all of the parts to GPO and/or JABB?  (Certain fonts I cannot do without, including an organ with a wide range of stops, a children's choir, strings col legno, and a baritone oboe.  I also use some sounds from the synthesizer that are not available otherwise.)
