I’ve been spending a bit more time with Dorico recently and have a couple of questions:
- control of playback of individual notes
In ‘Play’ mode I have discovered how to adjust the playback length of individual notes in the piano roll editor by following Anthony Hughes’ video on play mode in 1.1. This has been useful e.g. for a staccato note that was being overshortened on playback.
I’d like to adjust the volume of particular notes (velocity?) or perhaps experiment with midi effects and playing techniques. Looking at this video and the one by John Barron it seems that there is a lot of control possible through the mixer and effects but this affects the entire project, and can’t be controlled on a note by note basis. Is this right?
- possible bug in pizzicato playback
In my score (a piano trio) I have a pizz marking, but only the first note is played pizz by Dorico. It then reverts to arco for the next note, even though the arco text isn’t until a few bars later. I looked in the Piano Roll and all the notes do have the playing technique of ‘Pizzicato’ . Has anyone else experienced this, or anything similar?
