Hello, community. Sorry to bother you again, but I was wondering if I’m doing something wrong.
Firstly, I have Dorico Pro 2.2 and NotePerformer 3.2 on Windows 10.
NotePerformer 3.2—according to this Scoring Notes post—is supposed to allow multi-articulation support in Dorico. I am currently attempting to score a simplified piano version of Giazotto’s Adagio in G Minor for private use after purchasing the piano sheet music. I have reset the NotePerformer expression maps to defaults so it says version 12.
Unfortunately, despite the claim that multi-articulations are supported, I’m still having problems with natural and staccato notes in a piano score. The very first chord in the right hand is supposed to be natural and the left hand chords are supposed to be staccato’d, but all notes play back as if they are staccato’d. Interestingly, the final chord in the right hand plays back correctly because it is slurred into from the previous measure. I found that when I put the slur back a note, the chord played back as if it was staccato’d.
I have asked about this before when I had NotePerformer 3.1, and was told that removing the control changes from the staccato expression map and saving the results as a separate library file would fix the problem. And it did. But not anymore with 3.2. So for me, currently 3.2 has sadly made things worse.
I was wondering if I’m doing something wrong. Sorry if I sound annoying with these complaints—especially since I’ve voiced them before—but for me this is a thorn in my side.
Here’s the zipped file of the Dorico file I’m working on:
