Dorico uses either the VST 2 per-note tuning parameter or an VST 3 expression parameter for microtuning Steinberg instruments (Halion, Retrologue, Padshop, Simple etc.) and a couple of third-party instruments that respond to the VST tuning parameter (NotePerformer, Pianoteq).
Dorico plays back microtonal notation polyphonically, in extreme precision, using one of those VST parameters. As these are not MIDI, the tuning info is lost when exporting a MIDI file from Dorico.
- Is there a way to import a MIDI track from Dorico so that the tuning of the notes is not lost?
- How can we access the VST tuning parameters of Steinberg synths in Cubase? How do we give the VST tuning values we want for individual notes? Is it possible to access those parameters from Cubase?
