I’m starting to create my own expression maps for libraries that don’t provide these for Dorico. One of the first is VSL Synchronized solo strings.
Most of the things work however I struggle configuring my map for the different staccato samples.
I’m looking to configure:
- Short notes (C0) → Staccato (C#1)
- Sul ponticello (G0) → Staccato (C1)
- Sul tasto (G#0) → Staccato (C1)
- Harmonics (F#0) → Staccato (C1)
In the conditions I can only see note lengths but I don’t know how to trigger the specific staccato for the specific technique.
I also notice that certain techniques aren’t triggered as it seems Dorico handles these internally?
For example portamento, glissando and tremolo. I have specific entries in the expression maps for these, but Dorico doesn’t trigger these but they do sounds accurate. I assume this is Dorico doing some things to it? However they are part of the sample library so I want these to be used.
