How many versions of Handel’s Messiah are there? It’s hard to say, but by using Dorico’s flows and condensing features, it’s possible to prepare a version to suit your particular performance.
Dorico 3.5.10, the first minor revision to Dorico 3.5, brings finesse and refinement to a wide range of the notation app’s functions in the form of feature enhancements and bug fixes.
Steinberg has released Dorico 3.5, a major upgrade to its scoring program. Pitch-before-duration note input, semantic figured bass, line style editors, and condensing for section players are among the dozens of new features and improvements.
Our NAMM 2020 coverage continues with an interview with Steinberg’s product marketing manager Daniel Spreadbury, in which we talk about the Dorico 3.1 update, its new features and improvements, and the release of Dorico SE, a free version of Dorico.
Dorico 3.1, released to coincide with the opening of the 2020 NAMM Show, introduces condensing changes, lines, bracketed noteheads, a new dynamics lane for playback, local chord symbols, Hi-DPI support on Windows, user-defined chord shapes, and loads more.
Steinberg has released Dorico 3 with a first for any music notation program: automatic condensing of individual players into a full score layout. Guitar notation, harp pedaling, harmonics, grouped playing techniques, and comments are just a few of the dozens of new features and improvements in this major paid upgrade.
The first in our series exploring the major new features in Dorico 3, condensing is the process of combining the parts of multiple players on a single staff. This is a crucial step in the preparation of usable conductor’s scores because it helps save precious vertical space and improve legibility.
