Tried to find online resources to no avail - how can I access Dorico’s Pitch-bend feature for microtones? I’m curious to try it.
You don’t need to do any manual pitch bending to achieve microtonal playback: just write the desired microtonal accidentals (having set up your own tonality system if necessary) and Dorico will play them back. Depending on the playback device you’re using, you may need to adjust the Microtonality playback option in the Expression Map Data section of the Expression Maps dialog for the specific requirements of your chosen playback device.
Thank you so much. I was finally able to play Bach and Handel with Embertone strings with something close to meantone*. This is so cool, hopefully in the future we will also get CC-based microtuning option. (1 CC per pitch class, very easy to implement in Kontakt)
