Dorico 2.2 is the best update yet

Steinberg has released Dorico 2.2, another enormous update to the program. New features have been added or rebuilt in the areas of trills, group bracketing, repeat markers, jazz articulations, tempo track import/export, real-time MIDI recording, flow headings, tacets, and a new music symbols editor. Many more improvements have been made in other areas, and there are a good 100 or so bug fixes, besides.

Playback in Dorico: past, present, and future

Andrew Noah Cap gives a thorough review of Dorico’s playback capabilities and the wide variety of needs it attempts to address — from engravers preferring simple playback, to those wanting adequate sound rendering without thinking too much about settings and post-editing, to those that expect playback and editing functionality that is comparable to MIDI editing within a DAW.
