I’m wondering what the best way to accomplish the following is.
Let’s say I have 3 different trumpets in my score, and I have 2 solo trumpet patches, and one trumpet ensemble patch.
I am okay with having trumpet 1 use the tpt 1 patch, and trumpets 2 and 3 use the tpt 2 patch, when they are playing different stuff.
But when all three are playing together, I’d like to assign one of them to the trumpet ensemble patch, and assign the other two to no patch.
In Finale I used to do this with different layers - i.e. I would just put the tpt. ensemble patch on layer 3, and no patch on layer 4, so when the time came, I could just switch notating to the appropriate layers to get what I wanted.
Is there an equivalent way to do that using “voices” in Dorico, and if so, is that the best way to do it?
(this is all using 3rd party libraries and players (all VSL)).
