Would love to get a basic Salsa/Latin percussion ensemble in the instrument setup, (i.e., quinto, conga. Bongos and timbale) with notation and playback. If it’s already there, please inform me.

You mean: Steinberg /Groove Agent /Jazz Essentials /Latin Jazz?
it’s there. and many others.
Though, I don’t know anything about Percussion matters.

I need one player playing Timbales, one player playing Congas, and one player playing bongos with the bongo player carrying cowbell and claves. Can’t do that in Dorico as far as I know. If you know how to do this please help.

as far as I know, you can add instruments to a soloplayer and change, wherever you want,
the instrument that player plays.
In setup, choose player, klick “+” , then you can add another player, also a third player and so on

You could also watch the tutorial “Percussion | New Features in Dorico 1.2”

there you find a way to do so.
Until now, I never have worked with Percussion, so I can’t tell you that much about it.


Exactly what I was looking for!! Thanks!!
