Play instrument while selecting different instrument

Is it possible to continuously be able to play one instrument even if I am selecting different stuff?
I am currently transcribing some big band stuff, but I want to be able to just keep playing the piano on my keyboard whilst working on different instrument sections.

This comes up a lot, and I work this way too. Are you on Windows or Mac? Basically you need to open an external Piano VST and send the MIDI signal to it and Dorico simultaneously. In Dorico open then Preferences and uncheck Enable MIDI Thru.

Now you’ll only hear a Piano when inputting but you’ll hear the full complement of loaded sounds when you play the file back. (On Windows you’ll most likely need to use a software MIDI router to route the signal to multiple ports.)


Somehow I missed this. Thank you, this works :slight_smile:
