first of all, I apologize for the way I’m using the english laguage - I’m from Germany, but there isn’t a Dorico-Forum in german language.
for the last couple of days I went my first steps with Dorico/VSL. I had much fun discovering the basic ideas about expression maps and the use of playing technique; I did nearly every fault you can do, but time after time managed to resolve most of my problems (most of this faults surely have been ridiculous, but they have been MY faults - as mentioned above, I had much fun…).
Nevertheless I stuck now to some playback behaviour I’m not able to solve. I will try to attach 2 pictures, otherwise I will not be able to explain…
and the second one:
My problem: In bar 38 the playing technique “arco” is ignored, moreover, every playing technique is ignored. I am not able to stop the pizzicato from the first bars. When you look at the bar indicating the playing techniques in the playback window, you may see in the relevant point (where the longer notes begin, this is bar 38) only 1 playing technique is indexed in the Viololcellos- and it’s the wrong one, “pizz.” instead of “arco”. The other "arco"s are completely ignored.
I tried this with “ord.”, “nat.” etc. in various positions and combination (I left 2 examples in the score). Nearly nothing worked (of cause they have been attached to the right note in the right staff). Sometimes, in some staffes, it worked with “espr.” - but not in bar 38 t o 40, but earliest in bar 41 (… which is to late; Lalo, who wrote this, would insist in bar 38, I’m sure …) And never in the Viol. 2-staff.
Meanwhile I’m afraid it’s a Dorico-bug - okay I have been trying for many hours in various ways, changed expression maps, edited playing techniques, put notes on and of, wrote some phrases again etc. So maybe, the score is a little bit “distorted”. But I think, the difference between score and pianoroll shouldn’t be possible… Someone with an idea, how to go on? I’d appreciate any clue about what I’ve done wrong…
