OK, I feel a little guilty even bringing this up because there are so many more immediate needs directly related to notation and playback. However, I’d like to mention that control Surfaces, such as the Behringer X-Touch (among many others), play an important role with DAWs. While their applicability to Dorico isn’t quite as direct, there are certainly some things that could be useful. Obviously a control surface can manage the mixer faders and pans. That’s potentially useful during Dorico playback.
More relevant are the transport controls tat are built into practically every control surface. We could use these all the time under Dorico.
And the X-Touch (for example) has a bank 8 function keys that the app can recognize and assign to key sequences. I would certainly map things like “select to end of flow.”, “filter chord symbols,” “filter exclude chord symbols” and so on.
I know there are many priorities, but I thought there might be a chance that Steinberg might already have code available that wouldn’t be too hard to drop into Dorico.
I doubt anybody would go out and purchase a control surface just to use with Dorico, but for those of us who already have control surfaces, it would be cool if Dorico could make some use of that at some point.
Thanks for listening.
