Should Dorico produce a cheaper less functional version.
- 1. Absolutely.
- 2. Maybe.
- 3. Not needed.
- 4. You must be joking.
I would be very interested if we could have a poll here.
Dorico of course is becoming the default music typesetting program for all serious music typesetters, arrangers, composers, and it is exciting for me to be on board the typesetting train
My typesetting needs in the near future, probably for the next two or three years are very straight forward. I need to be able to typeset music for piano solo, or piano with voice and guitar chords, and nothing else. My humble feelings are that Dorico can now do that perfectly, and I cannot see any additional changes needed for piano, voice and guitar chords, but of course I may be quite wrong.
I would love the Dorico developers to create a smaller version of Dorico with just the piano, voice, guitar, options available. If the coding was not too complicated, and a simpler version could be created, I reckon this would be a great entry point for musicians who do not need the incredible versatility that Dorico currently offers for a steepish price, and dare I say steepish learning curve, although worth every cent.
Purchasers of the cheaper version could then upgrade to the full version. This would give a much larger entry customer base for Dorico. I believe that everyone would be smiling all the way to the bank
Even though I have Dorico for Windows, if Dorico came out in a simpler version, I would purchase it on the spot.
Have I lost the plot? Are my senior’s years showing , or is this a good idea?
I look forward to hearing some comments. Thank you.
Best wishes to everyone here.
