I’m an amateur jazz musician, I have been using Sibelius for many years, and I now consider moving to Dorico.
But having to buy the pro version, simply for being able to play swung eight notes is really a turnoff.
There must be so many arguments for the pro user to get the pro version, other than swing playback.
I know I could notate it with triplets, but music notation is about readability, and I don’t want to sacrifice that.
For this reason, Dorico is a no-go for me.
I hope this will change in the future, as it looks like a really neat product.
