I’ve been composing an organ duet. The music is done, also the layout stuff. More or less finished, that is. 14 pages.
My Dorico setup is two solo organ players = six staves. Dorico uses only one MIDI channel per one three-staff organ player = two channels all in all in this case. See the attached image MIDI_Channels_1.png.
Now I must start making a mockup in a DAW. As in real life with organ registrations, there should be SIX independent channels to assign six different organ instruments (“registrations”), when needed, to the six staves. See the attached image MIDI_Channels_2.png.
Is there a “direct” way to export a MIDI file from Dorico with six channels assigned? I know these things have been discussed already, but any news? I also know I could setup the score from scratch using six individual players with only one staff each (or something like that), but the piece being finished, it is now too late. Deadline approaching.
I, of course, can do this easily in my DAW by hand, but it takes a little bit of time, so a quicker way of assigning MIDI channels to each staff inside Dorico would be welcome. Thank you.
