A lyricist just asked me if I could please set something with a ‘thumb piano’ accompaniment.
I’m sure they’re not looking at making a real recording of someone playing this instrument, rather they’d lke me to compose something & then supply a suitably generated accompaniment track.
I wasn’t really surprised to find that Dorico doesn’t offer Thumb Piano, or Kalimba, or Mbira. Then I noticed that Sibelius does offer Kalimba!
Seriously - is there an instrument available in Dorico that comes anywhere near a similar sound? I’m a NotePerformer user
(PS there are now three reasons why I still have the S program on my computer 1. glissando playback 2. better control of pauses & fermatas and now 3. Kalimba!
Obviously I refrain from describing point 3 as a feature request - unlikely to ever need it again! However if Dorico 5 could offer string glissando playback & better control of pauses & fermatas that would be appreciated & I could ditch Sibelius completely.)
