Re: [puzzle] Two voices in one staff

You both have the same clef, but in different software. Looks like old SCORE (or Vienna, Wolfgang, Scorlatti), what is yours?

Schneider, do you break the tie directly in LP?

Or with a down tie :
Looks nice. I would perhaps put the slur above.
What is the software?

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

I still feel like the "Sibelius"-style slurs and ties curve too much near the ends. LP has the same issue by default, albeit a bit less pronounced. Yes, that is what I distaste about Sibelius. That one and the g clef. My first two things I change in Sibelius. LP has the same issue by default , albe...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

However, from my assessment, I see no reason why I should not do all my work in Dorico from now on. Given the the time I saved on all the manual adjustments which Finale would have required, I don't feel so bad about doing a couple here and there in Dorico. For what you do, it looks that it would s...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Thanks benwiggy for your example. Looks good as not so much edited! Some concerns about the ligature shapes (ties and slurs). They don't look well imo, as it is case with the Sibelius default. Some tie-settings need a crucial improvement, Screen Shot 2018-06-12 at 13.00.17.png Screen Shot 2018-06-12...

Lots (and lots) of talk about scores, but I've yet to see any part samples coming from this product. Anyone using it care to share?
Yes, good idea.
People use to say that "the result is wonderful" - what is meant by that? In comparison to Finale or Sibelius.

Re: [puzzle] Two voices in one staff

3. Enter a tuplet definition which is set to hide its number and use a slur instead of a bracket. It's nicely cut, but with only one cut and it's a bit difficult to adjust, if you need the cut at a specific position. I am always astonished what tricks people will find in Finale in order to accompli...

Re: tied quavers everywhere!

Just for the record, here's a source: Henry Mancini recommended this practice in his book "Sounds and Scores" from 1973 where he describes his arranging and orchestration techniques for Hollywood orchestras in the 60s/70s: Mancini is somehow contradictory. "If you want to end on the downbeat, write...

Oh, if only I were younger, I'd give Dorico a serious go! However, at 77 I'm probably safer sticking to what I think I know (Finale).
Wonderful, you made my day! :)
Remember, until yours 100 there is a plenty of time!
