Praise for Anthony Hughes's new series of videos

I watched the entire series of new videos for Dorico 4 by Anthony Hughes, who certainly deserves an Oscar or BAFTA for offering us such gems. It would be difficult to find something more carefully crafted and delivered in the industry. It is always a joy to watch these videos, which speak highly of the care that goes into all aspects of Dorico.

@Anthony_at_Steinberg - wonderful sense of warm humor and obvious enjoyment in the videos. I’m a video-hater in general, I’m not happy how the world is abandoning the written word in favor of “Hey Guys … /long rambling off the cuff video that you have to wade through/”. But your videos are the exception, I actually enjoy them, which is saying a lot :grin:

We missed your dulcet tones, Anthony!

Impressive diction, Romanos401.

Hmm, too deep and masculine a voice for dulcet, I’d say more in the woodwind family, like an Ent. Alto clarinet?

Fantastic videos! And now I have the phrase “working hard on” etched into my brain in Anthony’s lovely voice. Anyone else catch that?

@Anthony_at_Steinberg : Genuine question : do you do voiceovers jobs ?
If so I’d be interested in knowing your rates !
I’m developing an iOS music app and will release a first version in the next few months, I tried to record some voiceover tests over a temporary quick video but my voice is so terrible and monotonous plus I can’t stand my french accent, so I was thinking hiring someone for voiceovers for the introduction videos, already got someone in mind for the french version but I reckon you’d be my top choice for the english version, if I can afford it haha

Indeed. He (in a wonderfully pleasant voice) names the feature(s) he’s going to present, then actually shows us- succinctly and clearly- how they function. Outstandingly useful.

Thank you @Anthony_at_Steinberg for creating such wonderful videos! Your timing, humour and clarity make them so watchable and “learnable”. Just perfect!

Anthony’s videos are great - thank you; such a lot of areas of the program covered this time round.!

Though, here’s another guy (recent ‘dual’ user - Sib/Dorico) I found I also really like, for his style and composition/notation tips, and for actually showing us using Dorico.

I love how he just gets on with what he’s wanting to explain about composition/musical phrasing - and the technology gets out of the way; no ‘this shortcut/that shortcut’, ‘this panel/that panel’ stuff. Yes, its not a Dorico tutorial; its not even about Dorico. I just found it inspiring the ease with which he gets on with stuff and I pay attention to what he’s teaching… :wink:

In other words, more ‘real world’ videos, of actually doing/making stuff with Dorico - lead sheets prep, student exercises, transcription, spotting cues to film footage - is what I’m on the lookout for.

PS:- I’m only a hobbyist/infrequent dabbler; I’m a far bigger Cubase user. But, I enjoy and want to support the program. And this whole community here is amazing… :wink:
