I am experiencing issues with Dorico 3.5 and conTimbre (https://www.contimbre.com/). I’ve contacted the conTimbre developer as well because I’m not sure whether the issue is a problem with conTimbre or Dorico; however, conTimbre seems to work fine with Cubase 10.5.
The issue I am running into with Dorico and conTimbre is that, if I save my Dorico file and close and reopen Dorico, the ePlayer is back to factory defaults in all instances, which means everything plays with French Horn in F ordinario again and I have to reload all patches. Thankfully there is the ability in conTimbre to save the entire “orchestra” (patch settings) for each VST instance to a .cePlayerOrc file, and so if I save all eight instances of conTimbre ePlayer to eight separate orchestra files and manually reopen the eight orchestra files in each instance after reopening the Dorico project, then everything is back to the way it should be. However in Cubase 10.5 I don’t need to do this - all instances of the conTimbre ePlayer correctly remember their settings upon reload without me having to save these orchestra files manually.
Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!
