I’m borrowing the term from VSL, but I guess it can be a clear metaphor for other players. What I’m trying to do is to have a playing technique switch to a different set of patches, and let the other playing techniques select from that initial selection.
Take the con sordino articulation. In my preset, I may have a Regular top row, and a Con sordino top row. After a playing/playback technique has selected one of them, I want all the subsequent techniques to continue selecting from there.
The Muted playback technique works fine in selecting the Con sordino top of the row. After that, all other playing techniques seem to be ignored.
Is this because the initial Muted technique prevents the other techniques to be recognized, since there would be two techniques at the same time, and Dorico has to choose just one of them?
At the same time, it doesn’t work even if the Muted techniques is an AddOn. Maybe this is because the AddOn comes before the other techniques?
Apart for creating specific playback techniques for muted+articulation combinations, do you see a viable alternative to just have a single switch for mute on and mute off?
