Jonh as I said before, that is one of the real points of our conversation here.John Ruggero wrote: ↑27 Aug 2020, 21:49What a nice compliment, Den. Thank you very much! When I told my wife what I had written about the developers, she agreed wholeheartedly and said that in her many years as a systems designer, she had seen this phenomenon repeatedly. Software engineers are lone, problem-solving wolves who want to produce their very own solution.
I understand you OCTO. Why not go to download Trial version and try? That's not rocket science today If you could analyze my last gif example, you could have an insight into some details in working with Dorico. Advertising is one thing, but when you sit down and try it, it's something else entirely. It's all a matter of how you said yourself - personal perceptions, I absolutely agree, so I can't participate in your judgment about everything I don't even want to. Everyone has the right to have their own perception and every eye and mind is different, but when we realize that we are only talking about one topic and “there” or “here” the facts remain and it cannot be so easily agreed upon, circumvented or invented. Read my past messages again about all this, so maybe we can all learn a lesson. Honestly, I am very sorry for all of us, because we all try in our own way and help each other at some point. If I have offended anyone with this performance of mine, I am very sorry and I apologize! But OCTO, my apology and regret will not help anyone if we do not outweigh the factual truth. It doesn't matter what system you work in, or what you work with, that's exactly OCTO, it doesn't matter at all how fast something is, Dorico - it's not fast, but much more important is what I wrote about flexibility and "HOW". In this "how" lie the real arguments and once you have the opportunity to work with D., you will see that such a program in a 64-bit system and environment should work "like a bullet" and the logic is a completely different story, in fact it would it was supposed to be his primary thing like any music program.
I have an i7 and I have a feeling compared to all other serious professional programs, D. that it works as if it is a 16-bit application that is not even optimized. That's how I feel when working with Dorico.
I also worked a few years ago in a music studio and we had examples of sound testing sound, which program “sounds better”. Each program differs even in sound reproduction. Two top-of-the-line software, MAgix Sequoia and Avid ProTools' sounded impeccably clean. The others were all a class behind .... We have a lot of factors here ... So in this case of ours. Musescore is a solid and good program and you can do a lot of things in it, even it's free and then it's not a problem for anyone. I personally do not use it. If I personally had the capabilities and the right team, I would make the right software, in 2 years and it would be something that stands out from everything seen so far, but ... My advantage is that I really had an insight into many programs and worked with them personally . Here is one of my examples regarding "slurs in Dorico ...
Try it, it doesn't matter if in write or engrave mode, move or format the slurs where you want and not where the program determines .... From the very beginning in such a "Most Advanced Music Notation Program" it could have been completely different. set.
I don't see a reason why other members of our esteemed forum do not present and photograph the work in that program? At least that's not a problem today.
Of course, Dorico has all sorts of functions in him, that’s undeniable and a fact! But ... some of the details and the way these functions are set up and the “how” they work don’t fit the way - how it is presented to all of us and how we have a perception that it’s “it”. For something that would have complete control of each object and seriousness in engraving, it is poorly resolved and if it stays like this until version 5 or 6, 7 ... then it is a complete failure in notation and engraving. Lots of inflexibility and unspoken functions, no matter how much we currently have the perception that it is huge and that it has "everything a person could wish for". Even to my taste, the Bravura font is oversaturated and the "optics" are not well resolved, so as such it makes sense to impress only people who have never seen anything else in their lives and plan to do some children's books on music theory, explanations and similar things. , a lot of people like oversaturated and too thick fonts, so many will say it's my "personal understanding" or "misunderstanding" about how the program works. That has absolutely nothing to do with this topic and about Dorico. So ....: - (...
