I’m trying to make a crescendo/diminuendo with the EastWest Symphonic Orchestra that needs both velocity and CC11 for Volume and Expression of the notes. I’ve set them both as primary (Velocity) and secondary (CC11) dynamics in the Expression Map.
If I want to make - for example - a crescendo from pp to ff, the way CC11 increases seems to depend on the velocity of the note.
If I set the velocity to a higher value, the note indeed reaches a high Volume, but it doesn’t start soft and quite.
If I set the velocity to a lower level, the crescendo starts soft, but the note doesn’t reach a high level.
The only way I could imagine would be to split the note into several notes, tie them and give every note another velocity.
But that doesn’t work, 'cause if I tie the notes Dorico connects them to one long note with only one velocity value at the beginning.
(By the way it would look strange to make a whole note be consisting of four tied quarter-notes)
So how is a crescendo/diminuendo from soft to hard and vice versa to be done with Velocity and Expression as Dynamics?
