Only been trying the demo for a short while, and I’m sure I’m getting ahead of where your current plans are, but as a composer for film and media looking to ‘try’ and get a notation based workflow in the long run rather than a sequencer, there’s a lot of things I’d like to see added to make Dorico able to replace not only other programs, but also cubase;
- Add multiple audio inputs within the mixer (mainly for multi mic instruments routed through something like VE Pro/Kontakt - allows for creating large templates that are customizable per project).
- Batch export, if it isn’t already implemented
- The ability to route through VE Pro inputs AND standard midi channel, this works in cubase so you can access channel 1-20 (so 20 kontakt instances) and all 16 midi channels within those 20 kontakt instances, all within 1 VE Pro instance.
- CC Data tables, I know this is coming eventually, but it really is essential for making any attempt at creating realistic sounding mockups
- Ability to add program/expression map changes to any visible item on the page (ie typing something like “Sul tasto” would allow you to trigger one keyswitch, cc data or program change, and then assign “Normale” to something else etc)
- Randomize velocities within a set range per dynamic marking (ie 1-10 for ppp, 11-20 for pp etc, with perhaps a starting velocity towards the upper range to allow for some humanization representation)
- Humanize timings and velocities within chords (so for chords not every note is played the same dynamic nor time, an anti-quantize if you will, would just make it easier going from the “write” stage to the “play” stage, not having to slightly adjust every single note to make it seem a bit more human)
Thanks for your time
