Re: Notation program...

The trouble is that each user wants to do 1000 different things. So the most efficient way to do them ALL is to have 3 steps: the first is one is a choice of 10 things; the next is another choice of ten things that depend on your previous choice; and the third step is one of ten that follow on from...

Re: Tantacrul Dorico video

Tantacrul seems to be the most misunderstood person in the world? He did not mean to imply people shouldn't bother with Dorico? The fact that there's a great number of people who took his video to mean that you shouldn't bother with Dorico shows that he's got to update his communication game.

Re: Tantacrul Dorico video

I didn't find Tantacrul's opinions very helpful. Too juvenile in its strong wordings. Does anyone know of a more mature (and of course independent) review of the program? I might have missed something already presented here, but, if so, please direct me to that. It is going to be very hard to find ...

Re: Tantacrul Dorico video

Actually, the Dorico defense front (including me) might have been overreacting. This post on the Dorico user forum sheds some light on how critique is usually handled among professional designers. According to that post, the video is actually both high praise for Dorico and a valuable professional ...

Re: Tantacrul Dorico video

… … …Why some subject themselves to this kind of torture is beyond me. Because for this old (senile?) man learning new software might be an even greater torture. I'm not a music ‘engraver’ as such. I compose in manuscript and then prepare a fair copy in Finale from which I (or somebody) can prepare...

Re: Tantacrul Dorico video

Dorico wipes the floor with Sibelius and Finale in many regards and he somehow missed most of that. I'm prone to speculate that he spent very little time with it. I spent the same amount with Dorico and I wrote three enormous pieces all inside the program (sketch, draft, edit, finish). That was all ...

Re: Notation fonts

I am elated at Abraham Lee's work in this area. His fonts are some of the highest quality fonts I've ever used. When I used LilyPond mostly, I reached for his fonts more than the standard fonts. We are incredibly lucky to have talented folks like him in this industry to raise the bar after such a lo...

Re: Nightingale source code

Is Nightingale worth it? I looked up examples, and I just can't get into it's fonts. Also, is the Windows version still be developed, or is it abandonware at this point?

Re: Going digital

I work with a composer as their sole publisher. He has a few works which he only wants printed, while others only digital. He has a policy, though: You have to order a minimum of 10 copies of his octavos. That's it. This makes it so that I can run to the print shop and print them off and bind them a...

It looks beautiful. Just a comment, is it possible to have shorter stems in general (question not for Dorico but for engraving)?
Yes! I guess if it doesn't break any other rules. What do you have in mind?
