I have a few questions about what to expect of Dorico 4.
Will we see a better integration with DAWs?
My desired workflow is to be able to work with Dorico and the DAW at the same time. I prefer Dorico to any DAW if I have to write music, but DAWs work better with synth and unconventional instruments (glissandi patches, etc). I wish I could work with both worlds together in order to get the results I want. I don’t need Dorico to be integrated within Cubase, just to be able to sync it (tempo and measures) for allowing a better drag and drop of the MIDI info. Also, the ability to drop the MIDI of Dorico inside of Cubase (or any DAW) WITHOUT any CC.
Will we see custom templates and custom instrumets in Dorico 4?
This will be awesome to use some of the unconventional instruments mentioned above, as well to create our own composing templates. I wish I could have a DRAFT one with visibilities like in a DAW, as I like to write music from the DRAFT to the real orchestration. I think we’ll see audio tracks. Also adding several instruments at the same time or without closing the window for adding instruments will be appreciated
Will we see the new license management?
This may be a embargoed question, but a dongle-free management will be very agreeable. I mean, I’m planning on buying a laptop and I wish I could carry my Dorico in it without the fear of losing/breaking the eLicenser. I don’t mind the eLicenser in my desktop, but the laptop is another story.
I don’t know what you think, but I’m really looking forward to seeing Dorico 4. I can’t wait!
