First of all a massive congratulations on the new update and I hope you all take a very deserved rest! I am now fully on board Dorico and will start to recommend it to colleagues! As someone pointed out in another thread, Dorico is indeed now ready for prime time. Now to some negativity, but bare in mind, I say this with a big smile and gratitude for this great update.
Why oh why was edit velocity not included? Don’t answer, I understand… Too many priorities. But it feels like such a shame because you came so, so close to giving me (personally) a fully working program to do ALL my work with. In the past month I have become so adept at:
- Editing MIDI CC (thanks to discovering the open New Window for my other monitor)
- Adding Keyswitches on the fly by assigning a shortcut to Add Staff Below - Hide staff
- Tweaking the humanise dynamics and timings
- Quickly swapping from Draw to Object Select and adjusting timing and positions of individual notes
But no matter how much I tweak the Velocity Curve in Dorico or in the sampler I cannot get the right interpretation out of it, but what really saddened me was the announcement that this would be the last update for Dorico 2. Oh well, in the spirit of Daniel’s brilliant poem:
…“I have chosen as well as I could,” the Saint said,
"And there is much to enjoy here, from A up to Z.
But if your wish is not met on this happy new morn,
Don’t act all surly, all mad, or forlorn.
“The team has worked hard as their minds would allow,
And e’en your wish not be met in the here and the now,
Know that our future efforts will not diminish,
And all wishes will be met 'fore we come to the finish.”
I will leave my thoughts and feelings here in the hopes that at least it will make it to the next iteration…
And congratulations again, incredible work!
