I am trying to use the “Dorico Iconica Template” that Dorico provides, but I do not get any sounds. MIDI input is recognised in VEP7, though. I assume that means that YEP7 Audio OUT are not routed correctly, but I do not know, where to check that. What do I have to do?
MacOS 12.6, M1
Dorico 4.3.11 (Rosetta Mode)
Paging @John_at_Steinberg, who knows much more about this template than I do.
Thank you, @dspreadbury !
Follow-up: Comparing to what I can see in the video here:
and what the list of expression maps contains (see screenshot) I think that not all expression maps are imported. I tried dragging the
.dorico_pt file onto the hub several times, but no change.
When I open the dorico score (from the template folder provided by John) , then VEP7 populates automatically and the expression maps are there. But only in that score.
What do I have to do to have those expression maps available globally?
As soon as you apply the playback template, all of the required expression maps will be added to the project.
I tried that several times, but to no avail. Here are the steps of my workflow:
- Open VEP7 and load the Stings instance
- Open Dorico & drag the
.dorico_pt onto the Dorico Hub
- Go to
Playback template... and choose
VEPro - Iconica; confirm via click on
Apply & Close
- Open my test score, go to
VST and MIDI and connect to VEP7 Strings instance
- Open Endpoint Setup and try to assign the proper Expression map…
… but there are only those 2 Expression maps available shown in the screenshot above.
Am I doing something wrong in my setup process?
The file I use to test Iconica:
Iconica - test.dorico (578.6 KB)
Can you attach your playback template file itself, so I can see what’s really in there?
I thought the playback template is the one that John did for Iconica and that I drag into the Hub of Dorico? Is that wrong? Do I misundersand you?
(Just to make sure: The score file that comes with the template DOES work fine.)
Here is the Score file from the Iconica template by John:
Iconica VEPro template.dorico (827.2 KB)
Here is what I think is the playback template you ask for:
VEPro - Iconica.dorico_pt.zip (18.8 KB)
And here is the playback template that I exported from the Playback Template interface (and renamed after download):
VEPro - Iconica (exported).dorico_pt.zip (18.5 KB)
The screenshot from the Playback Template interface:
I add some more screenshots of files and folders in `/Users/[user]/Library/Application Support/Steinberg/Dorico 4/…".
FWIW, I have successfully used the Dorico Iconica Template with VSL VE Pro and each time, I need to resize the Woodwind Piccolo memory before I get any sound. Once I raise the memory up to 10k (or something like that), then I have no problem and the template works fine. But it does not remember this setting. Each time I open the VSL template I have to reset the Woodwind memory!
Simple fix, but it was a PITA to discover and find in the beginning.
