This is all sounding very exciting!
One question I have which rather shows up how ignorant I am of music theory.
I can compose and orchestrate quite well in terms of the music itself - but, embarrassingly, I simply can’t get my head round the rules of spellings/enharmonics etc.
My music tends to jump around harmonically quite a bit so I rarely have need of an initial key signature.
Yeah, I just don’t get it.
So if presenting my scores to an orchestra rather than just mocking up myself I always have to hire someone to do that for me.
Other aspects of producing the score/engraving I’m ok at. It’s just the damn spelling!
I always wonder - and I know this is lazy of me - but if there seems to be such a definite system of rules in place for spellings, why can’t a notation program analyse the general key at a given moment, and the harmonic context of that given moment, and then spell things correctly?
I’m sure that’s easier said than done, but any chance Dorico has the facility to help me out in this regard?
Thanks very much.
