At no point did I complain that Dorico did not have what I want. Did you read what I said before ADMONISHING me with your ALL CAPS? I asked for clarification as to what does and does not work because, in spite of reading all the threads on expression maps here, it’s still unclear.
As to what’s promised - this is from the Dorico_21_Deatiled_Feature_List.pdf (which I read)
§ Playing techniques result in changes of VST Expression Map
§ Built-in editor for creating and editing VST Expression Maps, including import of existing
Cubase Expression Maps
And in the documentation, (which I also read), there are many imprecise caveats:
Although the format of expression maps in Dorico is similar to Cubase, Dorico cannot handle expression maps in exactly the same ways as Cubase. For example, Dorico allows you to use more playing techniques, but Cubase can reproduce more combinations of multiple playing techniques.
During playback, Dorico does not currently support all fields in the Expression Maps dialog. This is planned for future versions.
Although settings are imported into the Technique Controls and Exclusion groups from Cubase, Dorico does not currently implement all the information. This is planned for future versions
Asking for clarification is not complaining. It’s trying to develop a shared understanding, in an effort to reduce frustration and manage expectations.
Finally, Daniel has acknowledged the lack of clarity and the resulting frustration, on both sides.
What does your post add? Nothing.
