(Working with inserts in the Dorico mixer, I have certain wrong expectations, coming from Cubase.)
It seems the dropdown insert plugin list is just a long flat list, with no search field, or jump to initial letter? If you have a lot of plugins, this is a long journey, to scroll down, to find the plugin I want, every time.
Are other users seeing this? Am I missing something?
Is there an option to organize the list by vendor or category?
If a search field, and jump by initial letter are still feature requests, I suppose the ability to drag inserts around in the mixer, or alt-drag to copy, is way off.
If you have feature requests, you can post them here.
Dorico uses the Cubase audio engine, but that is a very low level component. The data model for Dorico is completely different to Cubase, so there aren’t many parts of Cubase that can just be reused. Play Mode is not a MIDI data editor. It’s an interface that shows the playback data within the notation. Unlike Cubase, Dorico doesn’t store a list of MIDI events. All the notes are generated dynamically from the notation.
Interesting! I understand that Dorico doesn’t “think in midi” as such. But it does offer live midi input and output. So it would be great if those features emulated their counterparts in Cubase - for user familiarity, and because they work well in Cubase - even if the implementation details are different? I’m thinking specifically, Midi input source selection, and midi output program change / patch scripts.
It’s sad that there is not a formal place to gather feature requests, since the recent discounts, and freeness of SE3, is bringing new users like me over from Cubase, and I understand that Dorico is in quite active development. I’d like to check a list of “known omissions” before I comb the application and forums looking for something that is reasonable to expect but doesn’t exist yet.
