I’ve just completed a string quartet using Dorico with NP3 (NotePerformer 3). Being I’ve bought BBCSO Pro (and not yet used it) I wanted to try the BBCSO Pro Template finding the result extremely odd ad not usable, with notes played legato and staccato at the same dynamic with a huge perceived difference. So now I don’t know where to start to fix the problems.
Before reporting this problem I’ve also done another experiment switching to HSSE+HSO where, a part the difference in the strings sounds, the result is dynamically comparable with the NP3 one.
Here the link to a ZIP file containing the MP3 and the score for comparisons: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1UMer0ZLCwNNayUyseu-S96s4iPjSGdod?usp=sharing
Check bars 66-90 of the first movement (3:09-4:04) and see ho the cello suddenly disappears moving from a staccato note to the same legato.
