Playback of custom tonality systems

Dorico Pro can play back custom tonality systems with any number and distribution of octave divisions.

Dorico Pro achieves full microtonal playback by calculating the appropriate pitch delta for every note, whether or not it is written with an accidental. Depending on the virtual instruments used for playback, Dorico Pro produces microtonal playback in different ways.

  • For HALion virtual instruments, Dorico Pro uses VST 3 Note Expression.

  • For all other instruments, including NotePerformer, Dorico Pro uses the VST 2 detune parameter.
