Re: Note values in Schumann

Do we think the crotchet is missing in bar 4? It looks like something's been masked off a bit.

Re: "Ten Music Notation Programs", including Dorico

head over here sir www.graphire.com/Pages/Framesets/framesmp.htm Are they still selling it for for $895, despite not having worked on it for 20 years? There are a surprising number of commercial notation apps still apparently in business: Crescendo, Forte, Cappella, Guitar Pro, Harmony/Melody Assis...

Re: Tantacrul Dorico video

I agree with Florian that his flounderings were somewhat disingenuous, considering he claimed to have followed the Dorico blog, watched videos and read forums. I find his final conclusion that he prefers Sibelius, whose interface he gave a much greater panning, curious, unless perhaps first impressi...

Do accents still appear within the staff, even if you have the show outside the staff option selected?
Seems to work here fine. Bugs of that sort tend to get fixed at the next update after being reported.

There is also improved XML import/export and faster overall 'performance'.

Re: Dorico 3.5 released!

Somewhat similarly, I myself could have used it a lot more 15 years ago or so! ;-) For the notationalists, there are some welcome improvements to slur and beam handling, and other fixes like breaking ties behind time sigs. But it's just the sheer wealth of features in only a few months since the las...

Dorico 3.5 released!

Well, they've done it again. A new release of Dorico. This one's a paid update, but at Steinberg's ".5" rate. Mind you, there's nothing half-baked about the features and fixes. • Pitch-before-duration input • Smarter, richer VST expression maps for better playback with third-party sample libraries •...

Tantacrul Dorico video

Joining Tantacrul's critiques of MuseScore and Sibelius, there's now what some would call a 'takedown' of Dorico. https://youtu.be/S-3wEC6Fj_8 It's an hour long, so buckle up. However, in summary: He makes some fair points about problems with Steinberg's installation process, Setup mode and a few ot...

Re: Working during Covid-19 lockdown

Life is currently a balance between looking after the children and spending time at my desk, and I agree with David that I find it quite hard to 'knuckle down'. The lack of deadline or other urgency has dampened the mood somewhat. On the plus side, I have lots of PDF manuscripts and half-completed e...
