Just upgraded to Dorico 3.5 and the expression mapping improvements are a nice improvement in the out-of-the box sound. However, I ran into something that I don’t understand (still coming up to speed here!) and cannot figure out how to fix: in a timpani part, the expression mapping initially bounces back and forth between natural and tremolo corresponding with the score (as it did throughout the score in Dorico 3.1). However, a little way into the score, it locks into tremolo for the playing technique—it explicitly assigns it to every note, whether or not they’re marked with a tremolo marking in the score. I tried toggling the tremolo on and off per note, and it didn’t make any difference in the playback technique: once it switches to that all-tremolo-all-the-time mode, nothing affects it.
Is this a bug, possibly in the conversion from the 3.1 to 3.5? (Did I miss a previous report? I searched and didn’t find anything, but… )
Also, is there a workaround here? I couldn’t find a way to manually set the playing technique, which makes sense from what I understand of Dorico’s model so far (it’s deriving it from the notated music into its internal musical-semantic representation of the note, right?).
I can attach the project, if that’s helpful.
