Just finished a work in Dorico couple of weeks ago, and I want to now set up a project in Cubase (9.5) to start tracking some of the parts myself, using an import from the Dorico file as a template.
In the original Dorico score, I have quite a few aggregate time sigs such as 3/4+3/8, or 4/4+3/8, etc. When I try to import an XML, it seems to do odd things in that for example the first bar like this (a 3/4+3/8) it seems to be missing the 3/4 part and in fact some the material from that bar seems to be on top of the 3/8 material. In fact in all of these meters, only one of the signatures has shown up. I had assumed that in exporting it would split the bars back into two time sigs, since most DAWs don’t recognise ‘a+b’ style meters. But that hasn’t happened.
Importing the tempo track (midi file actually) just omits the second party instead of the first part, as does creating a new Cubase project from a midi file generally.
Is there a way to succesfully transfer the time signature information in such a way that the beats and meters are preserved (albeit not in their original aggregate format)? I realise the bar numbers would all change but I can live with that.
If there isn’t, can anyone suggest a solution that isn’t just going through bar by bar and putting all the meter changes in Cubase manually (which is not a great use of time)?
