Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Dorico continues the mantra of "what it does, it does well", though it still lacks much that I need. But given the pace of progress, I'm very keen to spend time on it. All the manual adjustments that I don't have to do, compared to Finale, makes it effortless. I agree. Even the slur shape, which wa...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

How about: Completely independent time signatures (at least visually), completely independent bar-lines (at least visually)? What exactly do you mean? Perhaps something like this: Vertical placement of large time signatures in Dorico is a bit rudimentary at the moment; you cannot (yet) place them w...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

I haven't upgraded yet, but judging by the Discover Dorico rundown, the new features look very nice. The divisi feature seems particularly slick and useful, although unfortunately, it does not yet include the reverse option of condensing two players into a single score staff, while keeping separate ...

Re: Tips on creating a professional engraving?

Fonts are important to get to a certain aesthetic, but when it comes to learning engraving, any decent font will do, and as Schoenbergian says, Maestro is just fine as a music font. I would recommend that you start copying scores that you like (e.g., the Wiener Urtext editions you mentioned) in Fina...

Re: What Software Does MusicNotes.com Use?

Funny, I ran into a video by odod on youtube showing how you can change the piano brace character in Sibelius. I don't use Sibelius often, but it seems very possible that this "style" can be achieved in Sibelius (which does have superior brace scaling over Finale). It won't be a problem to recreate...

Re: What Software Does MusicNotes.com Use?

Knut, Are your sure about the brace? Finale has a scaling issue with with different stave heights. In the score above, the brace is scaled perfectly (compare 1st system with others) and doesn't get distorted like a Finale brace would. I guess it could be avoided if you entered the brace as an expre...

Re: What Software Does MusicNotes.com Use?

Judging from the piano brace, this is definitely Finale. Not sure about the font, though. Might be custom.

Re: Henle Blog and App

Thank you, OCTO and John! I had to put a bit of thought into how I could contribute to this discussion. It's very nice to know that it paid off. I totally agree with OCTO that the decline in the quality of musical scores is largely a matter of attitude. It's also a complex problem of decreasing reve...

I would love to quote your posts from their blog, since they represent a very well articulated reasoning concerning, what you call there, human output of the scores.
Possible?
That's totally fine by me.
