  • Using NotePerformer WITH VSL in Dorico

    I am asking for help from anyone who has discovered how to use the Vienna Library WITH Note Performer successfully.

    I have successfully used Note Performer since I purchased Dorico three years ago. I just added the VSL Woodwind library, and I’m trying to map its sounds into a woodwind quintet Dorico composition. The VSL woodwinds map just fine, but I want to use the French Horn from Note Performer. Is it possible to do this? i.e., can I use Note Performer for the French horn (only) and use the VSL library for my flute, oboe, clarinet, and bassoon?
    Also, the VSL sounds seem to ignore the hairpins that I’ve written into the score, whereas Note Performer perfectly performs them. Am I missing something?
    Finally, I can create the oboe & flute vibrato settings I want in the Syncron Player from within Dorico, but the Dorico sequence does not play back the vibrato in real-time.

    Any help would be very, very much appreciated!

    The answer is yes, you can, but I would post this question on the Dorico forum. The solution has nothing to do with VSL and everything to do with Dorico Playback Templates. No time to explain now, besides there are people on the Dorico forum much better than I to explain it.

  • Thank you.  Yes, John Baron from Dorico responded:

    I would start with the NotePerformer playback template and then manually assign the woodwinds but make sure you also add the VSL expression maps. Or make a new playback template from the NotePerformer one that uses the VSL template for the woodwinds
