First of all, HUGE thank you to Paul Walmsley for making the expression maps. That’s a tremendous resource and I’m personally very grateful.
I’m having trouble with the note length feature in expression maps. BBC SO has great staccato samples for brass, and this note length feature is a perfect solution for many musical situations where it’d be redundant to notate staccato (fast music, short rhythm, etc.). Only problem is it’s not working, and I’m not sure why.
I’ve set the active expression map to have the staccato technique have a condition of “note length < medium”. Passage in question is 16th notes at 144bpm, which should be well under Dorico’s defined value for medium. Tried “very long”, also didn’t work.
Notated staccato dots work, whether my note length condition is in the EM entry or not.
