I’ve got a problem with hearing some instruments in Dorico using Noteperformer.
I got around 20 instruments. When I navigate to “Playback” → VST instruments I created a folder, choosing NotePerformer. Went to settings and created 16 MIDI channels. And I can listen to the first 14 instruments, they playback perfectly.
But for the rest of the instruments - I cannot hear them. I tried it with creating a second port in the NotePerformer folder and rooted (VST inspector)
the last instruments to port 2, channel 1-5.
But the “edit instrument” window only shows the first 16 channels and Double Bass sounds like a trombone or sth.
Also tried to create a second NotePerformer folder and rooted the channels to it, but they are not shown in the NP window.
Seemed to be an error, but I hope that I am doing sth. wrong
The screenshot shows the first way that I tried: Rooting cello to Port 2 Channel 4 of the Noteperformer VST folder (Expression Map NotePerformer of course)
my second try: creating a new NP folder and routing Violin1,2, viola, cello, Double Bass to Port 1 , ch 1-5
Shouldn’t be working, because port 1 should already be occupied by the first channels’ instruments.
But the thing is, the instruments still sound like some brass instruments.
I’d be very thankful for any kind of help,
