I’m currently using the trial of Dorico Elements 2, because I heard about the VST support and the Expression maps (for key switches etc).
My issue is that while I can place Playing Technique marks on my score, and I can create Expression Maps, there seems to be a disconnect between the two. What I mean by this is, for example, I’m using “straight mute” and “open” Playing Techniques on a trumpet part, but in the Expression Map I can successfully map “straight mute”, but there is no corresponding “open”. There is “Open 1” and “Open 2” but neither of these seems to work with the “open” Playing Technique.
In general, I am finding it quite difficult to match the two together. Sometimes it’s okay, but most of the time it’s not.
Is there some easier method to figure out what works with what?
