I tried to find out about this in another thread, but could not get to the bottom of it. So again, because, as far as I am aware, you cannot test Dorico 4 (?) and this feature decides whether I buy it or not: is it possible to transpose the notes in a single lined (percussive) system? This is useful if you want to notate two percussive voices simultaneously, but also for other more uncommon notational endeavours
Can you show us an example of what you would like to do? I don’t understand what “transposing” means in the context of non-pitched percussion.
A trial version for Dorico 4 has been promised for the near future.
Sure, just did it in the thread. Have a look at this. I do the rest in Illustrator, notation software is always too limited for what I do. But the basic thing is produced in a single lined notation system. And for the workflow, I need to transpose the notes.
That is a laser. This is example is maybe a bit simpler, brightness levels for speaking:
No, you can’t do this with single-line percussion instruments, I’m afraid. It isn’t a suitable substitute for having a pitched staff with a variable number of staff lines. That feature will be added to Dorico in future, but not right away. I understand, @Andidollar, that this may well mean Dorico is not yet suitable for your work.
Thank you, Daniel. I see.
I will ask again in a year
See you in 2023! Enjoy the rest of 2022
