Single Slash Tremolo Not Triggering "Tremolo" Technique


In a piece with somewhat slow tempo, I am looking for an unmeasured tremolo effect on a series of sixteenth notes.

As I understand Gould, the correct notation for a sixteenth note unmeasured tremolo is a single added stroke. However, when I use this, Dorico does not interpret the note in playback as a tremolo, but tries to play them as single notes. I have to add triple strokes to the sixteenth in order to get it to trigger the “tremolo” playing technique.

Am I missing something?


There’s a playback option for how many strokes are required to create an unmeasured tremolo, which possibly you could change, depending on what your other needs for tremolos are in your project.

Ah, that’s great! Thank you!
