How well does the Score Editor work for contemporary classical music?
I think that Contemporary is the classical equivalent of modern sound design with synths and samplers; so, creating the sounds with Cubase VSTs would allow the contemporary composer to explore timbre in a really unique way.
HOWEVER, does the Score Editor allow the sheet music creation in the style of… for instance, the following examples?
Penderecki - Threnody for the victims of Hiroshima
Berio - Sequenza
Any contemporary music by Terry Riley, Pierre Boulez, Phillip Glass, Alfred Schnittke, etc.
Let me put it another way.
If I wanted to transcribe contemporary style compositions like the ones bellow, would the Score Editor be a good tool to achieve it?
Why would I choose Cubase for this task, in comparison to selecting Sibelius, Finale or even Dorico?
I have a VERY good reason: because Cubase makes it easy to create the sound. In my opinion, Cubase would offer a superior sound quality than any scoring software, because of its capability for sound design with synths and samplers. But, what about creating the actual printable score?
That’s where I need your help!
Please be as thorough as you like, provide examples, or references to specific functions that enable the user to create contemporary style looking scores.
