I noticed on page 24 of the 3.0 version history the following:
it is now possible for you to set up your own playback templates, including custom combinations from different playback devices, and make everything reusable so it needs to be set up only once > and can even be exported for use by other Dorico users.
I’ve been waiting on this general category of functionality as a whole, and while I know it’s not finished, it seems this new ability to export and import user-generated playback templates could be an incredibly helpful resource to the Dorico community.
If I’m understanding this right, I’d love for users to share playback templates they’ve created, so other users can benefit from them by importing and modifying to suit their needs.
If this idea catches on, maybe somebody should set up a GitHub repository or whatever to keep them all in one place. (Note: I’m NOT volunteering to do that!!!)
Otherwise, they will tend to get “lost in the noise” on a forum like this.
The downside to the idea is a potentially endless string of “I downloaded this template and it doesn’t work for me” questions, of course. Somebody creating a template isn’t likely to have the resources to nail down exactly which versions of a library and a VST player will work, and which will not.
I didn’t know of this site! You could use the wordpress ability to create users with restricted access to allow them to upload their own resources.
The other option of a GitHub repository looks good to me too, but I’m afraid it can be challenging for the less tech-savvy
