Dorico 3.1. If the answer to this is “upgrade to 3.5”, I’ll accept it even I don’t like it.
Is there a way to even out the playback volume or velocity relative to dynamics?
The guitar sounds in Dorico 3.1 just seem all over the place volumewise. I know that mp, f, etc. aren’t objective, and I’m not trying to compose by computer alone, but in Finale I could usually get at least an idea of the relative volumes.
When I use the defaults for Classical Guitar (Natural Nylon NoteExp in HALion Sonic SE, Default expression map), and input a chord of G2, C#3, G4, that top G is barely audible. I’ve reset playback overrides, and I’ve tried this in a new file with the same results, so I don’t think there’s anything wonky with the playback setup in a particular project affecting it. I guess the lower notes are just drowning out the G4, even though when I play it on my guitar the top note is the most prominent.
If anyone has a possible solution I’d appreciate it.
