Daniel Spreadbury returns to Scoring Notes to talk with Philip Rothman and David MacDonald about Dorico 4, the huge update to Steinberg’s scoring software.
We learn about the development team’s approach to this update, the challenges an opportunities it presented for Dorico after its release on iPad, and bringing those features and much more to the desktop version as they aim to “supercharge your workflow”.
We talk all about the new playback features that are now available directly in Write mode, like the Key Editor, and mixer. Smart MIDI input comes to Dorico 4 and we learn how that works and the benefits it brings to the music scoring process.
Engravers also see lots of benefits, too, like the new Library menu and Library Manager, which put a lot of engraving options in one place for the first time and make it easy to import house styles at a granular level, as well as creating templates for the first time.
We also each take a turn at identifying our own favorite feature in Dorico 4 and learn what’s next for the future of the software.
