Final note under slur playback

As stated here:

The final note under a slur sounds for 85% of it’s notated rhythm. This can sometimes produce really awkward playback. I can manage the sound by offsetting the ending of the note manually but is there any way to do this in a more general manner?

Best regards,

You can change the default unslurred length, which is what the final note of a slur will use. See the Timing page of Playback Options.

For your information, that link is to Dorico 2’s manual. The equivalent page for the latest version of Dorico (4.3.30) is here:

Hi, Pieter!

  1. What length would you expect? As Daniel said, 85% is just the default length that each and every regular note has. Do you want or need something different for “last note of a slur”?
  2. Do you have an example of this “really awkward playback”?

The playback problem I encountered was related to Noteperformer.
Arne has fixed the problem!
