How to make ghost note

Hi… I originally asked in this thread… and haven’t resolved yet… however, I made some progress.

I’ve created this video to show what I’ve done to save lots of typing, and quite possibly describing something wrong as I’m completely new to all of this.

In short… I’ve

  • made a new note head
  • made a playing technique
  • assigned that notehead to a playing technique
  • setup my expression map to set that technique to reduced velocity
  • setup my percussion map to use that instrument and playing technique

What I seem to be missing is how to assign the correct sound to the note that is being applied… or, perhaps there is something else I’m missing.

My end goal is as described in the original post… make it so that I can easily adjust the snare technique/sound using Shift+Option+Up/Down regardless of playing technique, instead of having to do something different (e.g., apply scale or bracket parameter override) for ghost notes.

Thx much in advance!

Why make a new thread?

@Derrek Do you have a suggestion as to how to solve the problem?

@Derrek - why did you quote that? I’ve already solved that part of the problem.

Because when you start a new thread, you cut off people who want to help you from what you and others have tried already. There is no reason for them to skip back and forth between threads.

@Derrek - then why didn’t you quote the whole thread? I was attempting to consolidate the unknown into one succinct post… and I think the issue is actually not a lack of knowledge of Dorico, but rather related to HALion. Would you agree?
