Hello crew behind Dorico,
After watching the following video:
Some questions came to my mind.
I’ve seen that we can route up-stem and down- stem voices to different ports and channels, which is great.
Well, let’s imagine that we have Violins 1 devided into 4 voices depending on the rhythm we may have up and down stems.
My first question here is:
Can we assign every single note to separate voice, and then to route every voice to it’s own port and channel?
In this case we’ll end up with 4 voices routed to 4 ports and 4 channels. But we could have more voices to devide in.
My second question is:
Can we assign Expression Maps per voice?
According to the 4 part voicing example above we may want to assign different E.M. for every voice.
My third question is:
In case we would like to combine two, or more, violin libraries, from different companies, for example Orchestral Tools and Spitfire Audio, to perform this Divisi in 4 /very commonly used to avoid artificial sounding effects/ .
So, how can we make the expression maps to work properly for every library ?
If I have previously created expression maps for Orchestral Tools they won’t work properly for Spitfire Audio and vice versa. Dorico doesn’t allow direct mapping, per voice and articulation as Overture 5.6 does.
Thank you in advance for your reply!
