As Daniel may know, I am reproducing the concert score of Gustav Holst’s “Mercury” symphony (34 staves without condensing yet) and finished over 100 measures.
Now, every operation towards an element (or multiple elements) on score (including repitch and entering notes) takes at least 4-5 seconds. It is a problematic experience to repitch a note (or a phrase) for a 3rd or a 4th by using ALT(+CMD)+ArrowKeys under such circumstances. I even wonder whether an option of “using popover to repitch or transpose” is better.
My computer is Late-2013 Mac Pro with 3.5 GHz 6-Core Xeon CPU (can TurboBoost to maximum 3.9GHz), 32GB RAM installed. It is 16 degree celsius in night Tokyo in this mid-October, but the heat generated by my computer (running Dorico doing this project) makes my room like in summer night.
It will be helpful if Daniel can tell me whether Dorico 3 requires higher TurboBoost frequency. If it does require, I will order a Mac mini ASAP (with maximum CPU option, TurboBoost @ 4.6 GHz). It is not the problem of my budget now.
