I haven’t used Play Mode much yet, but I’m starting work on setting up Dorico for use by VE Pro. I have set up a special set of VE Pro instances, each with only one MIDI port since Dorico does not (yet?) support VST3. Each instance, of course, is limited to 16 channels.
I set up an imported Cubase Expression Map. It seems to have imported just fine. In Dorico I assign the map (a Universal map for which I constructed my VI Pro matrices) to all sixteen channels of the instance.
When I begin to create my Woodwind section In Play mode, I select a VE Pro instance and connect to it. The correct instance displays for each instrument, with a default channel of 1. So I being to assign each instrument to the channel that corresponds to it’s assignment in the VE Pro instance by selecting from the drop-down list that runs 1 to 16. But suddenly I notice that my selections, 2…3…4…, etc., are being changed right back to channel 1. I try again, same result.
I cannot figure out why this is happening, so I don’t know what to do about it. Help!
