Not really useful for a regular orchestra. Not very common to see 2 clarinets on the same staff playing different articulations. But why not ?
it’s MIDI anyway. But you know it.
I think Expression (maps) in score is simply brilliant, but it needs serious improvements, as a I mentioned on my other thread in this forum section.
What I mean is : what is important is to be able to execute every possible expression in the staff only but WRITING the expressions with WORDS visible in the final score, not by drawing additional curves as for Note Expression.
That’s what I’m trying to achieve with Score Editor and Expression Maps. This way, even in Edit Mode, my score looks like final, not draft.
That’s why I think Expression Maps need improvements with “live editable values”, progressive values etc … think of : “con vib.”, “accent”, “cresc.” etc … first you put the expression with its initial preset and then you can modify some parameters if needed by double clicking or right clicking on it. Maybe Steinberg can add these to Score with Note Expression, but it doesn’t necessarily need to be applied to a single note but to the whole staff.
Hoping developers at Steinberg are still working on improving the current Score Editor. Or do they focus on the upcoming new scoring program ? But I really hope the new program will be integrated into Cubase, and even better, that it will have the StaffPad interface !!! even if there are not any pen touch screen monitors in the market excepted Wacom Cintiq 24HD. A Surface app would be great too.
