I have a similar requirement as @Demolite_STM. To be specific, I’m writing a typical musical theatre score. There, Keyboard players often play a ton of different sounds, sometimes changing mid-measure, sometimes different sounds at different times.
The following is a simple example (written in Finale):
For the actual production, this can be easily programmed in Apple Mainstage, but for the writing process, I would like to have a setup that allows me to have a more or less appropriate sound.
I have been a Finale user since 2003 and I’m currently switching to Dorico (if it works out for my use cases).
If I get @Lillie_Harris right, if I could limit myself to a maximum of four instruments, it would work well using independent voice playback for upper/lower steam on two voices. However, I will work with a template and need more than four instruments (as it also includes pitched percussion etc.).
In Finale, it works but it is quite cumbersome as I need to change MIDI channels using expressions (which doesn’t work well when using Kontakt for playback).
Is there a way to achieve this in Dorico?
