For expression maps, we can specify MIDI controllers (CCs) for primary and secondary dynamics. This works great for my Spitfire library of samples.
Percussion maps don’t offer this same functionality, so how does MIDI control over dynamics work for percussion mapped instruments? Although my Spitfire samples’ channels are set to use controller 11 for expression and controller 1 for dynamics by default, all of my percussion samples play at whatever volume and dynamics level they’re set to in the VST plug-in.
Apparently, Dorico isn’t (successfully?) modifying the values during playback. For non-percussion-mapped instruments, I can watch the expression and dynamics levels jump all over the place in the VST plug-in interface during playback. For percussion-mapped instruments, they don’t vary at all.
