I am working on programming expression maps for VSL horn and trumpet. I am not really clear on what playing technique I should be selecting to cancel the mute.
In Vienna Instruments, I use the Y axis to move between muted/stopped and open (so that I can use the X axis for legato, sustained, staccato, etc. and have all those in either muted/stopped or open state).
Is “na (open)” the technique I should be choosing to get back to the unmuted/unstopped state, or is there some other technique? (In my scores I usually just write “NO MUTE” but I don’t see that as an option).
In the score, I am using the playing technique “open” (which puts a little circle over the note) to indicate the absence of a mute. Perhaps I need to do something else there?
