The first bug actually completely freezes Dorico:
In Preferences, with the pane ‘Audio Device Setup…’ being open, if I accidentally click ‘Close’ button not in that pane, but the general one - at the very bottom right corner - Dorico freezes; the only thing one can do is to force quit.
Of course, by no means it’s a deal breaker - just be more focused on what you’re clicking on - yet, it’s a bug.
The other one - while not causing any nominal trouble - is a definite inconvenience if not nuisance.
It’s also 100% reproducible.
Using HSSE + HSO(Pro) I hear solo violin just from one channel. It happens both in projects created in Dorico 2, as well as in new test ones made in Dorico 3. Just to be clear: it didn’t happen in Dorico 2.
Curiously, that hard panning does not happen with other instruments - e.g. piano, oboe, viola; just violin solo.
If there’s a workaround for that second one (other than tweaking panning in mixer), I’d appreciate any suggestion.
