What a considerable disappointment (to some of us) the latest update to 1.0.30 is. We have been repeatedly told to have ‘faith’ (yes, that’s a paraphrase) to the team yet after hearing countless times that chord symbols were going to be added in the .30 update, they’re not. I suppose we must wait now for v.40 or will it be .50 before some of us can use the program from what we actually need it to do? Patience can be fragile and I feel that I have been given false information. I am delighted that the program was rushed out to ensure that grace notes perform correctly. That helps me (and many more I’m sure) so much.
Can Daniel guarantee that chord cymbals and the fiasco that is meant to be ‘gold standard’ in drum layout will be corrected in version .40? We’re told the next update will be in the spring. As Spring ends (in the UK) on 20th June, the team can release their next update on 20th June 2017 and still be honouring their goals. Potentially having to wait potentially 6 months or over for a ‘gold standard’ product is poor in my opinion.
I respectfully request, all the ‘defend Dorico at all costs’ brigade that frequent the forum, take a moment; pause and think about us, the other guys here who simply want to earn their living from something they have paid good money for (I paid the full price) are expected to be quiet and not complain when things we were assured just didn’t happen’. I wonder what my mortgage lender would say if I came up with continual excuses and delays? So please, if you are a “Dorico Defender” please say nothing, because this post is aimed directly at the Steinberg Team and Daniel in particular who should have the intestinal fortitude to apologise unreservedly.
