    Aria player suggestion...

    I think it would be nice to have an option in the Aria player where you could set real dynamics for the CC1, for example when needed a mf on the horn, you really can somehow choose mf and be in balance with the other instruments that are set to Mf as well. Maybe this feature could be connected to the modwheel on the midi keyboard.

    Except that dynamics are highly relative. What's mf in one situation or ensemble might well be p or even f in other situations.

    Your best bet might be to come up with your own estimated values for those dynamics and use that rather than having the software impose those guidelines on all of us. Just my opinion of course.

    This is where real-life training comes in. There is NO absolute equivalent "mezzoforte" between different instruments. It's ALWAYS relative... relative to the size and type of ensemble, relative to the density of the music, relative to the other dynamics that precede and proceed, relative to the number of total instruments playing, relative to the hall the music is being played in, relative to the mood of the performer/conductor on that particular day, etc...

    This is the only thing "wrong" with having wonderful tools like GPO: it gives people a false sense of the end result.

    'tis true, 'tis.
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.
