I’m trying to find a way to quickly configure a score using external sounds.
My sounds will be in VSL’s VEPRO. They will be processed by the MIR spatialization/reverb. Each sound must be in an exact instance and channel of VEPRO, to be exactly linked to the reverb.
As far as I understand, Dorico’s playback templates don’t seem to work for this scenario, since they try to automatically create the VEPRO instances they need, using the sounds they think to match better.
So, I think the only solution is to manually create my instances in VEPRO, connect them in Dorico, then match each instrument in the score to the corresponding instance and channel.
The above would work. But it will not be really fast. I would either
a) create each time my VEPRO instruments and corresponding programming in Dorico; or
b) have a fixed template in VEPRO including all the instruments I should ever need.
The (a) solution is very time consuming. Solution (b) would make launching VEPRO, each time, very slow, because all instances and channels will be created, even if I would have to use just a bunch of them.
In Logic, I love the Channel Strip Settings. You create a track, then recall a CSS, and it provides to loading a sound and all the needed effects, including the ones in MIR. I would love something similar in Dorico: a playback template limited to a single instrument.
