I imported VSL’s Vienna Smart Orchestra XP expression map for Cubase, and changed the first ‘long’ articulation to Natural. It seems that it is ready as it is for Dorico. The basic articulations seem to be immediately recognized.
I don’t know exactly what to do with the techniques added by VSL’s xmap. I know how to adda new playing techique to an expression map, but I don’t know how to do the opposite.
How can I transform an entry in an xmap into a playing techinque? This is how I think it works:
- In Write or Engrave mode, create a new playing technique.
- In the Expression Maps dialog, double click the name of the technique, and in the Playing Technique Combination dialog select the playing technique you created at step 1.
The technique name in the expression map will change to the name of the playing technique.
Is this correct?
