I am doing a rather huge orchestral project and loving every minute of using Dorico for this task - except now it seems I’ve added a couple of instruments too many for the Halion engine to handle. There are now 4 full instances of Halion with 16 voices each, and a half-full fifth instance. When I now try to add more instruments they are simply silent…! The three latest players or sections I have added simply does not make one sound.
I wasn’t really going to create this many players, but had to do a workaround, since some flows have divisi voices and some don’t. For instance: I both created a flute “section”, and three different flute solo players. I don’t know if this affects the sound, or if I could simply have chose one of the “solo players” to use as the “section” in the flows where all three flute players are playing the same voice. But then I would also have to rename them individually per flow, so that if there is only one flute voice in the flow, it is not called “Flute 1”. Thus, the solution of creating both sections AND solo players seemed like the best one - until I ran out of voices.
Have I hit a “limit” of too many Halion instruments? Is there some way to fix this - and rather quickly, since my deadline is fast approaching?
