Following on from a different post. I created a percussion kit which consist of 6 Gongs:
I then created a percussion map for all 6 Gongs single hits and their respective Rolls:
I then, under Daniel’s recommendation, set the Layout for percussion to 5 lines and set Dorico to accept Percussion Map instead of Staff position.
I then double clicked on the staff and I was able to write all the different gongs directly from my MIDI keyboard (C4=Gong 1, D4=Gong 2,etc.)
So then I exported the Percussion Map and the Percussion Kit. Opened an orchestral score I’m building as a template, imported the percussion Kit, imported the Percussion Map, assigned the instrument to the correct channel, assigned the Map to the channel, changed Layout options to 5 lines:
But when I try to input anything it just inputs the same pitch/Gong i.e. whether I press C4 on the keyboard or A4 Dorico just notates the Gong above the staff (Gong 6). What’s more irritating is that even if I use the arrows to select a different Gong Dorico continues to input the same one. Furthermore, even if I correct them after input i.e. using ALT+up/down arrows, Dorico continues to play the same pitch (Gong 1 which is incorrect anyway since the Gong above the staff should be Gong 6 according to the Percussion Map). Weirdly, if I use the Roll articulation it will jump to the correct group but not the different gongs e.g. C4 is Gong 1 single hit and C5 is Gong 1 Roll, if input any of the Gongs, then adjust them manually and alternate between single hit and roll, Dorico will play C4 (Gong 1) and C5 (Gong 1 Roll) for all of them.
Things I’ve tried/checked:
- Replicating the procedure on an empty project, I get the same issue
- Going back to the original file, everything works as expected
- Double checking that all the settings are the same, problem continues
- Re exporting the Kit and the Map
- Rechecked that both the Map and the Kit looks the same on the original project and the imported version, everything looks fine
- Toggle and apply use Map instead of stave position back and forth
I could attach the files if needed but let me know if you need anything besides the Dorico file e.g. Percussion Maps, Percussion Kit, etc.
