Fortunately, I have a backup with less than two minutes worth of edits because I’m a backup freak, but I still would like to know what happened.
I had asked the collective wisdom to help me with trying to setup a harmonics key-switch for GPO Harp KS 1. I have whitelisted an old version of aria multi x64 for this and the harp plays fine. Since no response was forthcoming (I assumed this would not be something that had been tried before), I bravely attempted it myself. In the course of doing this, the harp sample stopped playing altogether (I can’t remember exactly what I did …). I exited the file and then Dorico itself, then attempted to re-open the file. It stopped at 50% and showed an empty error window with Harp KS1 in the title bar. Obviously, it was trying to load the sampleit and something went wrong. On my backup that opens, I do briefly see a window showing that it is loading that sample. I am a bit concerned that it won’t open, it represents 18 minutes of orchestral music to be performed in January. I won’t be working on it for a bit now, and I have a couple of good working copies that open, but I would like to know if the file can be fixed, if only for future reference. I can send the file to the appropriate party at any time.
Thanks in advance!
