Okay, Dorico 2 is a revolution in scoring. That has to be said up front. OMG. Just OMG.
Please bear with me. I don’t have 2.0 yet and won’t have it until the end of June. I’m working with someone else who has it. So I may be slow to try any instructions given by anyone and thus slow to reply to this thread.
Can I create a playing technique called “bob” and give it a CC or Keyswitch in the Exp. Map? In this thread (https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=246&t=138851) it looks like someone else is doing this and hitting a problem with assigning a MIDI output. But when adding a technique in the Technique Editor, it doesn’t show up in the Expression Map editor in order to assign a CC or Keyswitch. It only appears in the Playing Technique UI panel.
In Dorico 1, the placement of playing techniques on the score is a bit odd for MIDI playback. If I mark “Natural” (cc 33, val 0) then “Spiccato” (cc34, val 46), then it’s not reliable. If I move Natural to the beat before, it works just fine, but then it looks odd and technically it still screws up playback for that prior beat. Is there a way I’m missing to fine-tune the timing of technique changes?
Thanks in advance!
P.S. If it’s relevant to why I’m asking… Earlier this year I made a mapping standard (and several Kontakt scripts that allow it to work) that makes Spitfire’s UACC look like a joke. It has thousands of articulations mapped, extended techniques most don’t know exist, for any library, in any mappable DAW/Notation program. It’s the ultimate “one to rule them all”.
