For those not familiar, Spitfire UACC is a method of changing articulations via CC32 data, instead of keyswitches. They have set up their libraries with a standard, CC32 set to 20 = Legato, CC32 set to 8 = Flautando, 42 is spiccato, 40 is staccato…etc.
I’m trying to set up Dorico to use this, and Dorico seems to have all the right options to do so, however some just don’t activate. Are there some symbols/technique text in the Expression Map editor that just don’t work? It’s hit or miss for me, and I don’t understand why. I have tried both creating the expression map in cubase, then importing to Dorico, and creating it in dorico.
Triggers that work:
Staccato Dot (symbol)
Triggers that don’t work:
Staccatissimo Dot (symbol)
Should these be working? Am I experiencing a bug?

There is another articulation method Spitfire uses, UACC KS. This basically works the same as UACC, but instead of sending CC32 numbers, it’s velocity numbers on one keyswitch. (Which then means you can trigger 2 or more articulations at once to layer). This appears to be supported given the Expression Map setup UI, however I have been unsuccessful at getting any articulations to change. Also worth mentioning is that when using note events, we have to enter note numbers. Just verifying that Dorico considers note 0 to be be C (negative) 2.
