check the attached picture. (the harmony lines are all Piano dynamic from the previous bar.)
When these combined crescendo+decrescendo marks are used without dynamics (p,f,etc) between each, it causes noteperformer to get louder and louder for no reason. its almost as if its reading an increase in dynamics when in fact it should equal out to no change overall. Im not worried about noteperformers actual performance of the sound, however it is annoying to not be able to hear the melody because the harmony is ending up at FFF when it should be around P.
Where it is written PP, the volume of the instruments is taken from about FF down to PP, when it shouldbe from P to PP. From that PP point there is 5 bars again before a dynmic P marking, which again the volume has increased up to around FF. the longer it plays without a dynamic marking (p,f,etc) the louder it gets.
i simply want to indicate a swell in volume to the performers.
Unless I am mistaken, I believe this to be a playback bug. perhaps someone can check with a different VSTi or the halion symphonic orchestra.
