Sorry for abbreviating, when I speak of ‘UR’ of course I mean your UR22mkII.
And actually the “new” steinberg low latency driver, is not so new at all, in fact, it’s pretty old. Also, it’s a generic driver that should work with any ASIO-compatible audio interface. But because it is generic, it doesn’t offer the best performance, so dedicated drivers (provided from the actual audio device manufacturer) should do a much better job and also may take advantage of specific hardware features.
But from your new Wagner project, I can see that you are already using the correct driver for your UR22mkII, it’s the
“Yamaha Steinberg USB ASIO” driver. Always stick to that one and you will be fine.
Unfortunately I can’t say anything to the “forte-shortened notes” issue. I’m from the audio engine team and this seems to be more of a Dorico internal problem. You may want to start a new thread to get renewed attention from Daniel and his team.
