First, the good news. I was surprised how well Dorico imported a complex MIDI orchestral score. I had to change a few staves from player to section, but that was simple.
Issue with percussion (as I feared):
1-I had three MIDI perc tracks:
- Cymbals (clash hits and suspended roll)
- Drums (bass drum, snare drum, tambourine)
2-Triangle came in OK.
3-Cymbals came in on one track, but I don’t think Dorico understands that one pitch represents hand-held clash cymbals, and one is a suspended cymbal roll.
4-Drums came in on one track but Dorico doesn’t know it is orch bass, orch snare, and tambourine.
QUESTION 1: Is there an easy fix? Or…
QUESTION 2: Would it be easier to separate each MIDI track, import again, and re-import? Once I do that, will be be able to combine staves so both cymbals are on one track, and both snare and bass are on one track?
Sorry for the long post. Thanks.
