Viewing topic "Trouble w/Finale 2012 MIDi files"

On several occasions, I have loaded SMF files that I created using Finale 2012 into a song in Song Mode on my XS7.  For some reason, when ever I rewind to the beginning of the song and play, the instruments in each track are changed.  The bank stays the same but all the numbers reset to 001.  In order to avoid this happening, I add an extra measure to the beginning of the song.  Then I have to move the cursor into the song, sometimes to measure 1, and then play.  This works up to a point, however, there may still be a track that resets later in the song.  Any ideas?  Is there some sort of controller that needs to be turned off?
