Am I the only one who is more than a little bit salty about having to pay 100 dollars to upgrade to Dorico 2?
Dorico 1 got me excited, so I invested early. You cannot deny that it was (and still is) an incomplete program, and lots of features were promised to be unveiled as quickly as possible. It felt like being part of a cool “beta” test, with the one issue being of course that the lack of some of these features made the software essentially unusable for real professional situations (like, 1-bar repeats and slash notation? come on!).
Now as I’m seeing it, the “remainder” of the program that I thought I had purchased in its entirety is now behind a paywall. Only the people who came in late to the game are granted the “4 week free upgrade” benefit? You got it wrong guys. It should be the people that supported your idea from the beginning. There is no way I’m going to give you $100 more, when it feels like you’re just going to keep releasing “sequels” until you’ve finally hit a baseline of functionality. I am all about the DLC model: but those should be packs of boutique options, graphic notations, UI skins, or features that not everyone needs to use.
Kind of want my money back at this point, since I have not been able to use this program more than casually. I would rather wait until Dorico 10 when it contains everything it should have to be a viable option compared to what I already own.
