Chord dynamics

How do you make this chord quieter?

You could add a written dynamic in the score, which would automatically adjust the playback as appropriate, or you could add data in the dynamics editor in the Key Editor to manipulate the dynamics directly.

There was no difference in the playing between FFFFF and PPPPP.

If you’re using a custom instrument sound for playback, you need to tell Dorico how to handle dynamics for that patch: by default, Dorico will use MIDI note on velocity, but if the instrument is expecting e.g. MIDI CC 1, then you won’t get very far. To change the way Dorico handles dynamics for a given sound, choose an appropriate expression map in the Endpoint Setup dialog in Play mode.
