I work with Logic Pro X score editor. Because it has it’s limits, I’m testing out the free trial Dorico 3.1 has. So far I’m liking what I see, vs Sibelius and Finale.
I am running into what seem simple editing task problems, like once imported an XML file, not being able to change the pitch on a note/s by selecting and drawing them to a new pitch, which I’m used to doing in Logic.
I can’t find how to separate a chords notes to re-write as an ornament, e.g., for the first note of a measure.
I have never worked with high end scoring programs, so I know there’s a learning curve.
So what I’m trying to say is: can I modify and improve my XML imported files in Dorico and do things like:
- modify note pitch?
- change regular notes into ornament notes?
- use unconventional score symbols?
- edit drum/percussion parts by drawing notes on the score or in play mode?
- use the library sounds from logic in Dorico if needed?
Hope this makes sense. I’ve also looked online and in Steinberg Forum to find the answers I’m looking for, so I can decide whether to buy Dorico 3.1 or not.
In any case, I would appreciate any feedback, answers, suggestions on the matter.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
