Greetings Dorico Team,
I recently demoed Dorico 2, as I’ve been using Cubase in conjunction with Sibelius for a number of years. I would gladly switch to the far superior Dorico 2 if it would incorporate the ability to import audio. By “importing audio” I don’t mean anything elaborate, just a single track of audio per project, for the CRUCIAL purpose of working from a reference/source track. This is how I currently work in Cubase as an orchestrator, where I work most often from a client’s stereo file rough mix to create the desired orchestration.
I am not approaching this from a film scoring perspective, where I suspect a rather inelegant workaround is possible through importing a video file with the music one needs as reference married to the video, and then deleting the separated video file once it is Dorico. My concern (and I would assume other users as well), is a purely audio/music based issue, though I’d assume film scoring users would benefit from this added streamlined functionality request. Thank you very much… and if and when this is implemented I’m ready to hit “Add to cart”.
