How can I make an acoustic guitar VST sustain its notes in Cubase 12?

Hello, I created a project in Dorico and used the pedal function to sustain notes on the Steinberg TGuitar VST that I have. It works just fine in Dorico but when I export of the project as music XLM and import it into cubase 12, I cannot get the guitar to sustain like I did it Dorico. Does anyone know how I can make the guitar sustain like a piano VST?




Could you try to export-import MIDI file instead of music XML, please?

OK, I will try that. I will let you know if there’s any difference. Thank you for the suggestion.

It worked! You are a genius… Thank you so much!

I do have one more question. Even though exporting the Dorico file as midi worked, I could not select the instruments separately. I had to export and import as an entire project. Is there a way to export from Dorico as separate instruments? Maybe I should post this on the Dorico forum?

I think Lillie has you covered:

In Dorico 4, this behaviour has changed and I believe it’s now whichever layout is active (ie in view in the music area) whose content is used for exporting audio and MIDI.

What is your use case, please? Why do you want to export then track by track, please?
