Hi Folks, see the above drive link for all assets related to the issue:
-VEPro Server Project
The setup is Dorico running on Mac Mini M2 Pro OS 13.2.1, 32GB RAM 1TB SSD. VEPro server is running on PC w/ AMD Ryzen 9 and 128GB RAM. Dorico running in Rosetta mode due to Vienna Compatibility w/ Silicon
Issue #1 Crashing on Dorico 4.3.3
At a certain point one night when working on this project, dorico began crashing every time I would edit the key editor for the suspended cymbal and then hit Cmd+S. I tried restarting just about everything . I thought it might be the attached video but further testing has revealed that the only resolution to the issue so far has been rolling back my installed version to 4.3.2
Issue #2 Communication of Articulations w/ Divisi Strings
This has been an ongoing thing for me with Dorico and CSS even before I had this dual setup (running solely through Dorico on the PC, not using VEPro). The strangest part is that the correct articulation will trigger if I click on the note in the score and watch the Kontakt multi, however, it will not trigger on playback. Some of it seems to be in regard to MIDI Channel mixups communicating articulation messages on different MIDI channels than the instrument that is playing back. Sometimes just re-mapping the MIDI channels/ports resolves it, and sometimes just throwing in a “nat” somewhere in the score does. However, the persistent issue is with Tremolo+Con Sord in Divisi. Tremolo works in Divisi without mute but not with. I have Con Sord as an add-on in my expression maps and it works fine everywhere else including with tremolos in unison. I even tried, redundantly, creating a new base patch for trem+mute and the same issue occurred.
Issue/Question #3 VEPro Returns in Dorico
I have a working situation here by limiting the mixer outputs to 1 in the endpoint config which basically gives me mixer control over each instance in VEPro (which is what I would need for stemming). However, I’m not sure entirely how Dorico handles and connects with individual outputs in VEPro? If I hover over some it’ll say Violin I (Instance Name) and for others, it’ll say Flute 1 (Out 1/2). It appears as though it’s basically accepting the same routing, considering on each instance I have everything summed to a master fader per instance. As I said, at this stage it’s a working scenario because it allows me to “faux” stem out by solo-ing and exporting. This may already be underway in a future Dorico update, but it would be really clutch to be able to do some kind of automated solo stemming sort of thing like Cubase has or be able to print down stems as this process can take a while.
Question #4 CSS Scripting
Has anyone tried the CSS articulation delay script for CSSeries on Dorico? Have you had any issues?
