This question is open to anyone, but Daniel if you have information please share…
I have done some work in the past for Marching Bands that now incorporate the use of Synthesizers on the field. Having to write for a synth is difficult, I never know what sounds to chose. From my experience it has been because band directors/etc. say “Use the synth to cover other voices if you want.” The problem is that (from what I can tell) you cannot add a synth stave, then in the playback change the sounds it produces, such as “cello sound”, without jumping through a lot of hoops. It would very cool if you could add a synth stave, then be able to assign which sounds it produces in playback, along with the ability to change that sound through the score. I am seeing some broadway scores that are using a synth to produce multiple sounds, such as a triangle roll.
Will something like this be easy to do in Dorico? Or has something like been easy to do in current scoring software and I just missed something?
