First, I want to say that Sibelius was a phenomenal product. Now that I’ve learned more about the PLAY tab, I suspect Dorico might be as well. It’s thrilling! And I want to thank you and your team for all your hard work.
I use 3 different sample libraries for one instrument in many cases. Many users in the film world do. Why? 1) because not all libraries have a full compliment of every articulation. 2) Using multiple libraries allows for getting the right performance, in contexts. 3) sometimes layering 2 gives you a more rich sound, which can help it sound more real and less machine-made for certain instruments.
In a DAW, this is no issue. In Notation, I don’t want triple staves for one instrument. All my articulations are on different MIDI channels in VEP as it is. Point is, there are several layers to the need to consolidate messy “instrument data” into clean staves.
It’s not a new problem and it’s a fairly common one. So I’d guess that you’re already aware of this. My question is if you are doing anything to address this? If in v1, I may die of over-excitement (truly, I might just). But even if in v1.1 or 1.5 (or maybe 2 if we have to get ugly) I’d still be thrilled to hear it.
Thanks for putting up with my frequent rantings. I believe I’ve had legit concerns because of the limited info we’ve had. But the more I learn, the more I think you guys are hiding some pretty cool things under your thumbs. And every deeper glance I get into that PLAY tab, the happier I get.
