(Speaking as someone who is coming from Sibelius)
My fastest/preferred way of entering music into Sibelius used to be one hand on the numeric keypad selecting note durations, and the other hand on the MIDI keyboard inputting them. So I’d use the num pad to hit quarter note, then play the MIDI note I wanted inserted as a quarter note, and so on.
I’m trying to learn an equivalent in Dorico, but it’s proving a lot harder than I expected. Can anyone point to a tutorial (YouTube or other) where someone demonstrates this easily?
Note: in the context of the tutorial I’d really like to also know how to input rests effectively. For example, if I’m in 4/4, and want to input a dotted half note followed by an eighth rest followed by an eighth note.
I’ve searched the Dorico documentation and even watched several note entry tutorials and always come away frustrated that they haven’t explained EVERYTHING. (I’m sure it’s in there…I’m just tired of searching.)
