Hello,

I'm testing the Synchronized SE expression maps (vol 1-7) for Dorico (thanks VSL and Steinberg!) and I'm having a few questions about articulations.

For testing purpose I wrote the first bars of the Main Title of Star Wars.

On the Trombone 1 part, the chosen articulations by the expression maps are not the ones that I would like: they're too long.

Files for the example can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/pqbktykbg2u8aof/AADo4jB5XUFV6gqgH7FP_Hsla

Non modified score:

- Score.jpg: the original score

- Dorico - Play.jpg: notice the "natural" playing techniques: it doesn't sound quite great on 32th notes

- Audio - VSL.mp3: audio rendering using VSL Synchronized SE expression maps

- Audio - NP.mp3: for reference: audio rendering using another VI

 

Modified score:

- Score - VSL modified.jpeg: added staccato on 32th notes and extend marcato range to a group of notes

- Dorico - Play - VSL modified.jpeg: you can see playing techniques modifications

- Audio - VSL modified.mp3: audio rendering using VSL Synchronized SE expression maps

 

Is this a good way to go or do you have any tips to do it better?

Thank you for your answers!

Gil.

Hello Gil!

I can see what you mean. I would also use staccato marks in your example to trigger short notes with fast attacks.
Maybe we can optimize this in an update. I will look into it.

Best regards,

Hello Gil!

We have just released an updated "VSL for Dorico Installer".
https://www.vsl.co.at/Notation_Related

Very short notes for SYzd-SE (non PLUS) wind instruments now automatically trigger the staccato patches.

Very short notes for SYzd-SE PLUS strings now automatically trigger the detache-short patches.

These patches have a slightly faster attack and will work better for very short notes.

Please note that the newly installed expression maps will not replace the expression maps in existing projects.

Best regards,
Andi
