I have to commend you guys. I’ve been finding more to Dorico lately that makes me realize this program was designed much more intelligently than I had realized (much more). I am missing a few things still, but getting much closer to being up and running in Dorico than I had ever thought possible.
That said, I’m stuck…
1) My techniques aren’t switching per the map. Is this a bug or am I missing something?
Here’s my test Dorico file:
The “trill” technique was initially a staccato. I just tried changing the technique a few times to see if it was a staccato issue specifically. The “nat.” and “mute” techniques work. Legato even works. It sends the CC34 value. But any time I try to send another CC34 value aside from legato, it’s not sending anything per the map.
- How can I have a default technique other than “natural”?
I want to use a sustain patch as my default patch. If it’s not staccato or has no other marking, it should just play a note. I have several muted sustains that I want to work the same way. So I can’t just use natural to reset everything. I may use staccato or legato with a mute. But if I don’t… I just want the default sustained mute to play the notes. As that’s a pretty obvious way to use Dorico, I’m sure I’m missing something here. I tried non-legato, but it doesn’t trigger and I don’t see anywhere in Dorico’s playing technique panel to mark the score with it. I’m lost.
