After much perseverance I am finally doing some initial composing in Dorico. I managed to set up my instruments to play VSL instruments through VE Pro. I’m trying to figure out Playing Techiques and Expression Maps with VSL instruments (in VI Pro).
I have set up a “VSL” Expression Map with a single technique, legato. I have assigned CC 51 in VI Pro to control the “Y” axis, and CC52 to control the “X” axis. I have added the appropriate CC51 and CC52 “note on” values to the Expression Map to select the pLegato articulation in the VI Pro matrix. I have added the “legato” playing technique in my score. But…
The legato technique in the score does not trigger any change of behavior in VI Pro. Whatever articulation I manually select in VI Pro plays. But the “legato” in my Dorico score does not affect playback. Not only this, but in Dorico’s Play Mode listing under the instrument I’m working on there is no technique but “Natural” showing. I can find no way to select “legato” in playback and no way for Dorico to trigger the appropriate changes in VI Pro.
There’s gotta be something obvious I’m missing. I’ve look in the Dorico help and online, but I’ve come up empty. Help!
