When first setting up a new score Dorico assigns all the sounds and midi channels by default, but now when I for the first time is about trying to do a work for a larger orchestra I found a strange thing.
When assigning midi channels in play-mode I can only use channel 1-9, number 10 and up is not possible to choose.
But, even though I can’t select ch.10 the player plays the sound from slot 10 in the player. (as shown on this pic:
Another thing, which I mentioned in another thread, is that when using a reverb from the player (ARIA in my case) the reverb returns to channel 1 in the Dorico mixer. This works very fine, the only problem is that the channel numbers in the player doesn’t match the numbers in the Dorico mixer. Since the reverb returns to ch.1 I choose to send the the Player slot 1 to ch. 3/4 (slot 2 to ch.5/6 etc) Since the labels on the Dorico mixer refers to the player slot with the same number everything will be displaced one step. Not a huge problem but worth mentioning anyway.
I’ve also noticed there’s a big latency (2-3 seconds) from playing or selecting a note until there is a visual reaction in the Dorico mixer.
