I am jazz musician and I only need very simple notation software to create lead sheets. That’s all.
Sounds like something simple right ? I had experience with Finale and Sibelius. I searched forums and read opinions that Dorico is more sophisticated than the other two, is much newer, better almost in every aspect and much more intuitive and user friendly BLA BLA BLA
So couple years ago I purchased Dorico ver 1. That was my first mistake. The software didn’t have midi note input and for me it was useless for long time. Since then I updated it 3 times or so and I think it might be close to $800 or more all together. I am Steinberg fan and own Cubase, Halion and other products. So I own latest Dorico and to be honest never used it. Just because it was never intuitive or user friendly. And again all I want to do is simple jazz lead sheet.
Is there anyone at Steinberg who can make a video tutorial for that?
I have been struggling with midi note input. I am getting double flats on some notes and this is very frustrating. I read couple posts but there was no explanation to this.
I attached PDF. Please compare bar 2 and bar 4. You can also have a look at the pick up bar. I read instructions and watched tutorials. I set the key to Bb major. It doesn’t help because Dorico puts notation its own way. The Bb major scale is (Bb, C, D, Eb, F, G, A). Why in bar 2 there is Double flat E instead of D which is in BB major scale??? And on top of that in the bar number 4 Dorico did outstanding job and put proper simple notation. Any help will be appreciated. I don’t want to wait couple years and paid for upgrades anymore. Can this be fixed?? Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
