very excited about Dorico – congrats to Daniel and everyone involved!!
as a songwriter and electronic music composer, i’m primarily curious if i can do a lot of my writing w/in Dorico, then export as ‘tracks’ for more heavy-duty mixing. apologies in advance that these questions are coming from a very DAW-based workflow (i fully realize Dorico isn’t intended to be a sequencer replacement):
1) will it be possible to bounce instrument groups as stereo stems for additional audio sweetening/mastering in a DAW??
2) how robust (or limited) will the editing parameters be in Play mode (i.e. note length, CC info, etc)??
3) for hybrid scores, are there any plans to allow external audio (loops, etc) to be incorporated w/in the Play section??
4) somewhat unrelated question… i’m an instructor at a private college – will there be volume licensing for computer labs, or does the EDU price translate to a per-seat cost??
other misc musings:
i understand HALion Sonic SE 2 does not have an arpeggiator included w/ the synth; but, if this is expanded upon in the future, it would be interesting if arpeggiated notes would be automatically transcribed in the score (i.e. like the FlexPhraser exporting to MIDI function).
video integration for film scoring would be a great time saver.
also echoing comments made in other threads – hopefully Kontakt will ‘play nice’.
