You may have said this elsewhere, but at the moment, I cannot find it.
I am working on a project (rather large) in Sibelius 7.1.3, that I hope to really finish in Dorico upon its release. The issue I am having and getting very angry over, is that I have a score for a semi standard orchestra (31 staves - Flute I and Flute II on separate staves, etc.). Sibelius doesn’t playback correctly. It flat out ignores many staves, and plays partial staves of some instruments. And sometimes, it just decides to playback 1 instrument regardless of having nothing selected. I am sure that much of this is a Sound set issue, of which I am not willing to upgrade to get it fixed.
Will Dorico be able to handle playback of this number of instruments? Or more? I have a Mac Pro (after running into some money 2 years ago), that has a 12 core processor 64 GB RAM, etc. I have not put any music notation software on there yet, as I am waiting to install Dorico on there. But I am curious if I am going to run into similar issues regarding “too many instruments” when it comes to playback.
