Apologies if I am asking a question already asked by many before me, I am using Dorico 3.5 Pro with Note Performer happily meeting most of my instrument requirements.
I now need to include some brushed jazz drums and have downloaded a trial version of Simon Phillips Jazz drums to use with GrooveAgent SE5. I can’t remember how I got GA SE5. Maybe it came free when I bought Dorico, or maybe it came with Cubase, which I also use. Point is it works just fine with Dorico 3.5, except for the obvious percussion maps that I must construct.
To be honest, I 'd rather be writing music than constructing maps.
From what I have read , Groove Agent is an official part of Dorico5 now and the default drum kit when starting a new project. Sounds good to me. Does this mean is comes with a library of percussion maps for all the GA kits too? Should I struggle on in 3.5 and create my own percussion maps, or will an upgrade to Dorico 5 Pro save me the pain and get me straight back to writing music?
Many thanks for your answers and for tolerating my ignorance on these matters.
