I’m looking at a major orchestrating project sometime in the coming year, and I have no desire to do it in a DAW. I really prefer to start with written notation. And obviously I plan to do it all in Dorico, at least until the final mixing phase. To that end, there are three things I still need:
- easy expression mapping for VSTs. I know this can be done now, somewhat, but I’d prefer to not have to set them up manually. Maybe they’re already easier to work with than I perceive, and someone can set me straight on this.
- velocity editing and other CC data
- tempo tap (similar to Finale, whereby you tap the tempo during playback to map the tempo changes and nuances)
Considering the development pace to this point, I have no doubt these features will come in short order.
Daniel: I know you’re unable to give specifics, but can you offer any general insights to the anticipated timeline for this category of features? I’m making plans for the year, and the availability of these items above will very much determine when I tackle this project.
Thanks! Exciting times.
