Thank you for a great looking program with awesome playback capabilities. I’m very excited as we all are about what the future holds. Now for the reason for my post, I’m tired of using one program or another for something the other lacks. I use Finale, Sibelius, Guitar Pro and Chord wizard among other programs through the years and would like to see features like these below in future releases of Dorico for us Fretted instrument players. I know it is a long list and most of it has already been brought up but here is my thoughts just in case.
All of the below with altered tuning on the selected instrument ability.
Guitar fretboard diagram with the ability to select notes into the score and shows notes in playback
Keyboard with the same as the fretboard ability above
Ideas functionality from Sibelius
Other fretted instruments tabs
Chord dictionary with chord diagrams above the staff
Chord progression generator or guide similar to Cubase maybe
Ability to add chords to holding pin that are part of the score and can be dragged in and out.
The abilty to display and change chord diagrams from the chord symbol to the roman numeral or Nashville and other types of chord progression shorthand.
Scales functionality where it will display scale you pick in the selected tuning and show the scale on the fretboard diagram so we can import them into the staff or tab. Also, be able to load the full fretboard diagram or scales in certain positions on the fretboard. Maybe a way to align it with the selected chords on the staff for easy visibility on in key options based on the underlying chord progressions.
Ability to move music from staff to tab and back with the ability to specify the fret low and high ranges.
Integration/synchronization with CUBASE via rewire or something else. Until then give us a stereo audio track in Dorico to import to and sync with the score.
I know you guys can even best all of that and I understand it all takes time especially to get it right but please give us at least the tab and chord diagrams and audio track or Cubase sync ASAP as now you have a better marketing channel for recording guitarists being tied to Steinberg/Cubase!!!
