I’m wondering if I should have stuck to my usual rule and waited until the second or third iteration of a new version…
1/ Imported Flows do not play the sounds I’ve set for them in 3.1, it appears to revert to the default voice for the part name. For example, when I write a vocal part I often change it to a cello sound in the Halion player - I can’t work with that ah sound, too slow on the note hits. Imported a flow with a vocal line and it’s playing the voice Ah sound…so I’m guessing that the Flow does not contain information about players instrument assignments - other than the default by name? And that swapping the played sound is a Project setting and not a flow setting? If so then that’s my bad for not knowing.
2/ Several times I get no audio after starting Dorico 3.5. had to restart.
3/ the mixer doesn’t appear to be working - no longer allows me to solo or even view the outputs from each instrument. The meters are not even moving - apart from the reverb and main output.
3/ Missing fonts. No, they’re not missing, they were used in 3.1 and this is the same computer. And if I bring up a text box I can select the missing font.
Worried about opening a large project created in 3.1 and thinking I’ll create a separate folder for 3.1 projects and keep 3.1 on my system until things settle down. Staring new projects maybe ok but I get nervous when opening a project with months of work that starts to misbehave like this…
Comments and thoughts welcome please.
