Wow, what a year it has been! It’s time once again to reflect on the past year on Scoring Notes and in the world of music notation software and related technology — and to look forward to what’s ahead.
The downloadable Sibelius plug-in Fill With Tied Notes fills the bars between the first selected note or chord in a staff and either a second selected note, or the end of the selection, with tied copies of the first selected note, using the pitches, voice, and notehead styles of the first notes.
Notation Express for Dorico 3 supports comments, harp pedaling, the Edit Lyrics window, increase/decrease dynamics, extend to note and selection, harmonics, and condensing (some features are XL only).
Avid has released Sibelius 2019.9. It introduces an impressive new way of importing MIDI data that can make working with such files in Sibelius much easier and faster.
Notation Express XL for Sibelius and Dorico is available: a fully customized profile for the Elgato Stream Deck XL console that puts powerful features at your fingertips by pushing a button on the expansive 8×4 grid, with lots of new features.
MuseScore 3.2 has been released. Single note dynamics, more flexible automatic placement, percussion sticking, changing durations, and more improvements are featured in this latest update, along with design refinements and better performance.
At NYC Music Services we’ve made a demo of Notation Express available for anyone to try. The demo includes just a small subset of the hundreds of functions in the paid version, so you can see how it all generally works and do a few useful things with it.
Notation Express is now available for iPhone and iPad. Notation Express is the custom-designed profile for the Stream Deck console — and now the Stream Deck mobile app — that makes powerful notation features in Sibelius and Dorico accessible via an easy-to-use touch interface.
Notation Express for Dorico is here. Just like its Sibelius counterpart, it’s a fully customized profile for the Elgato Stream Deck console that makes powerful Dorico features easy and fun to use.
Steinberg has released Dorico 2.2.20, a maintenance update to its scoring program, mostly fixing bugs and adding a few improvements too.
