Since there’s no Play Mode chapter in the online manual, I don’t feel guilty about posting this question.
I’ve got an existing Dorico score and want to assign (let’s say) the oboe to Cinesamples Oboe. I’ve figured out how to add a Kontakt instance. (This is already vastly easier than Sibelius.) I can load the Cinesamples Oboe into Kontakt. I can assign the correct Kontakt instance to the oboe track. It makes noise when it should. So far so good! Manual, schmanual.
I know that Dorico has a special relationship with its bundled HALion plugins so that (say) a staccato mark will trigger the staccato articulation sound. I’d now love to set up the same connection with my Cinesamples Oboe. I am dimly aware that Steinberg has something called an expression map and that this is probably where all that magic lies.
The Setup Plugin Playing Techniques popup menu looks relevant, but doesn’t seem to do anything when selected. Not with Kontakt, Play, nor with the bundled HALion plugins.
Where do I go from here? Help appreciated with ardor.
