Re: Affinity Publisher Public Beta

benwiggy, what software do you use for outlining? I feel this as the most problematic AND important chain in music publishing.

Re: Making the switch to Dorico?

I enjoy laying out the notational elements to create exactly what I want, and I enjoy doing it with my own two hands with minimum of intervention from a program. If anything, I want more direct control over every element on the page, rather than less. Have you tried MuseScore? I still use v2 and ma...

Re: Making the switch to Dorico?

I think that Dorico should implement some of pure graphical elements in the software (without actually being these involved in sound design nor MIDI manipulation). I am not sure why is that so difficult. Perhaps it is. But for note entry, I'm loving real-time MIDI input. Imagine: Hyperscribe that ac...

Re: MuseScore 3.0 released

Wow, that is really interesting! A few days ago I downloaded MS3 to a friend's computer, and his kid could use it after 30 minutes spent with my explanation. I have so far used only v2.2.

Automatic spacing of elements is absolutely fantastic.

Re: Making the switch to Dorico?

About to start a more contemporary project and am not looking forward to kludging all the lines and arrows. I hope version 3 addresses this shortcoming.

Re: pre-Reviewing Dorico

Thank you Florian! While it could be indeed great to "play" with Dorico on this stage, I just need a tool to execute my needs in a most easy way. Another important thing here is that my scores are usually done partly or for the most part by other engravers, so that could be really messy if things ar...
