Notation Musician gives you multiple ways to control various aspects of the instruments and their playback settings for each staff (which corresponds to a MIDI "track").

 

You can use either the Single Staff Setup, or the "big" Staff -> Setup dialog to:

 

Edit the instrument name(s) as it appears on the score
Change the instrument sound of a staff or staves
Adjust the Volume level and Pan
Rearrange the order of the staves
Set whether a staff shows normal noteheads or drum notation noteheads.
