Fermatas, Caesuras and Commas on Playback

Is there a way to set Fermatas, Caesuras and Commas on Playback?
Can we set different timings for these ‘breaths’?

Not yet. This has been asked a while back, and Dr Walmsley has very kindly answered. For instance, here.
These are features taken very seriously by the team, and they’re not easy ones to implement properly.
In the meantime, you can use the tempo lane to draw your different tempi changes (without affecting the notation) so that it sounds close to what you’d expect, once those features are implemented.


Hi @Azu,
@MarcLarcher is right… unfortunately still there isn’t a playback for the fermatas, caesuras and commas, and the only way to control them is by editing the Tempo curve.
I hope in Dorico 5 we’ll more advancement in the area of fermatas, caesuras, commas and ornamentation playback! :slight_smile:

Best wishes,
Thurisaz :slight_smile:

Of course Marc is right: that goes without saying.
