(Apologies if this has been addressed. I searched the best I could and couldn’t find anything on this topic.)
My online students send xml files, most created with Sibelius. I upgraded to Dorico 3 last week. Since then, I’ve had several instances where an xml file will load beautifully, but not play back. Sometimes no instruments play. Sometimes one or two instruments play. Sometimes one or two instruments play for a while, then suddenly stop and don’t play again. Once, restarting the computer helped. Another time it didn’t. We lose valuable lesson time trying to figure this out. I can hack through their chamber pieces well enough so long as the textures are simple. But it doesn’t compare with the ability to let them hear a revision I suggest. Sure you all understand.
I LOVE Dorico, and am suggesting it to all my students who can afford it. Good job, guys! (Gender-inclusive, of course)
Thanks in advance,
