Re: Making the switch to Dorico?

If they were, they probably would not be able to admit that to you, having certainly signed an Nondisclosure Agreement (NDA).

Re: Making the switch to Dorico?

I am making the switch, although some clients still prefer Sibelius or Finale. Just did a large job for National Symphony and used it for the Harp parts, which would have been a pain in either Finale or Sibelius but were easy in Dorico. Still not comfortable with note entry. I really should remap th...

Re: Binding of scores (loose sheets)

The problem with both these methods is that the music will not lay flat.

For large PDF scores I have used a three hole punch and then put the sheets in a 3 ring binder. However, if I was going to perform from this, I would most likely get it coil bound - it's not that expensive.

Re: Copyright question (Schoenberg Serenade).

Thank you for correcting me on Mexico. Do you hear a lot about enforcement down there?

I was employed with a Mexican orchestra some years ago. I would say most definitely *not*. Many times we performed from illegal photocopies.

M35 RH can be a dotted half rest.
I disagree with this. You should always be able to see the middle of the measure. A dotted half rest would obscure that.

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

When using the new divisi feature, Dorico cannot add sub-brackets to, say, a divided Violin 1 section. Daniel Spreadbury has acknowledged this to me (in a comment on the Scoring Notes blog).

This is one area where Finale outshines both Sibelius and Dorico.

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

This really looks very good to me.

When Dorico allows for more flexibility with brackets and sub-brackets, it will also become my first choice.

Waiting for the flame war on clef design...

Re: "Library" vs "Performance" editions

Perhaps the OP meant critical vs. practical performing edition?

Re: Have reprints been getting worse?

Part of the problem is that (Kalmus, at least) has digitized their entire collection and now most titles are print-on-demand. At first, they were printed at a very low resolution until many orchestra librarians complained. It's a bit better now, but still not as sharp as the older prints.
