managing dynamics for certain part

Postby vamm » Thu Dec 06, 2018 8:51 pm

i have a problem when at some moment a particular part has been played with a too loud dynamics. I know it is because of other parts that have "ff" at this section, but I use a special dynamics style expression like "p" or "pp" for the part, and usually it works. I see it is an only one way to set different dynamics levels for different parts, isn't it?
But at this particular place, in the middle of the score, without any specific reason, nothing helps. I change dynamics, colors, rewrite all the part, do all the possible and not possible stuff, but it still has been played "ff" instead of "p" I try to set.
Any thoughts how to override it?

You need to show us the actual file. otherwise this is just a guessing game.

Suggestions - look for words that affect playback
Turn off live playback
Set performance to meccanico

And some Instruments, like distortion guitar, don't respond to dynamic markings. You have to pull the fader down in the mixer.
