Today I’m working on a Dorico Expression Map for BBCSO Discover. It seems that only way Steinberg team allow us is to use only HSO for composing orchestral pieces. Am I right?
I set up the same flow onr for HSO and second for BBCSO. Of course switching from legato to pizzicato, spiccato and so on works perfectly, while the same setup (keyswitching) for BBCSO don’t work as expected. Putting legato at the start of stem will play legato all the way despite of pizzicato switch in the middle. If removed that legato switch, then pizzicato works fine. To use both, there should be a silence between legato note and first pizzicato. Stupid, right? That’s my observation today. Maybe I should restart everything including myself, but I suppose there are some inner problems that pushes to use only HSO (or Iconica).
I don’t say that Dorico is bad or HSO is bad. I just want to feel free to use tools I have. That’s the only way to compose music. Not going strictly through gates you draw.
