Playback dictionary - multiple items

Post by BlackDorito » Fri Oct 26, 2018 4:45 pm

The playback dictionary allows you to associate a textual term with a control change such as "~C32,15".

Does anyone know of a way to associate multiple control changes with a single dictionary term, such as "~C7,100 ~C1,0 ~C11,127" ?

Thx,

No. Because the CC texts have to be separate. You can't lump them together in the score, so you can't do it with a shortcut key either.

I suspect the way to do it might be through a Manuscript program ie a plugin.
Sib 6.2, 7.5 and 2019.9, Windows 10, 32GB RAM, 8TB 7200RPM Storage, 2TB SSD Note Performer 3, EWQLSO, EWQLSC, Harmony Assistant and some others.

Thanks for replying Mike. Actually I do put multiple "~C" in one text all the time .. it works fine. For example, I can set a mic-mix for each instrument by adding "~C22,127 ~C23,127 ~C24,0" (this is for Spitfire libraries) .. but it clutters the score when I add this to every staff line. I would prefer to have a short Dictionary entry such as "Mix1" that gives the same effect.

Thanks in advance for any further thoughts.
