I’m setting up a Dorico project with the goal of having it work seamlessly with Superior Drummer 3 (SD3). I’m seeing an issue with associating a notehead with a specific instrument/playback technique.
While in write mode, when I enter a note, e.g., snare, I want the capability to cycle through Playback Playing Techniques (Shift + Alt)
and see Superior Drummer 3 articulations popup with an appropriate notehead, e.g.,
“Sn. Dr: SD3 Center”: Default Notehead,
“Sn. Dr: SD3 Sidestick”: X Notehead,
(1) I’ve successfully created Playback Playing Techniques, e.g., SD3 Center", “SD3 Sidestick”, etc.
(2) I’ve successfully created a SD3 Percussion Map that maps the combination of Instrument + Playback Playing Techniques to Midi note number.
The third step is the problem:
(3) White in setup using “Edit Percussion Kit” > “Percussion Instrument Playing Techniques”
I’m seeing an issue with associating a notehead with a specific instrument/playback technique.The “Percussion Instrument Playing Techniques” dialog only enables you to select the notehead set but not an element from the set. If you choose a different notehead set, the application simply selects the first element from the set. There is no way to select the 2nd, 3rd, or any other element. Ideally, I want to setup a custom SD3 notehead set using the Engrave > “Edit Notehead Sets” dialog. But if I did, it seems there is no way to associate an element from that set (other than the first one) to the instrument/playback playing technique as far as I can see.
It seems the sensible way that it should work is this: Select a notehead set, then select a notehead from the selected set. But it does not unless I’m overlooking something.
I’m I overlooking something? if not, can we add this capability to the next iteration of Dorico?
