I setup a flow, assigned instruments, and opened Halion Sonic SE2 by clicking the “e” under VST instruments in the right sidebar of Play Mode. Some of the instruments just play a piano sound even though I have “Hand Drum” or “Flexitone” assigned. In Halion, indeed, piano is listed in the Program Rack.
Question: Why aren’t the sounds for Flexitone and Hand Drum assigned when the instrument is assigned? Are those sounds just not part of SE2 and the instrument sound defaults to piano? If so, it would be helpful to have a some distinguishing mark in Dorico’s assigned instrument list such as, maybe, an asterisk, or a dimmed instrument name, or italicized instrument name…something to let the user know they are not going to get the expected sound.
But to my big issue…
My Media Browser is empty when I click on the dropdown arrow in Halion’s instrument list. (see pic)
No matter which dropdown I click, the Media Browser is empty.
Question: Should I have sounds available in the browser and if so, how do I get them to appear?
P.S. I realize a couple of issue’s are addressed here, though I think they may be related. If a moderator or veteran suggests I should create a separate thread for the first issue, I’d be happy to do that.
