I’m working on a few small projects with Dorico, including a baroque aria in which Bach uses dotted eighth-sixteenth rhythms as a shorthand for triplets. The movement goes back and forth between triplets and dotted rhythms, but there’s no question (in my mind, at least) that all the dotted rhythms should be assimilated to triplets. It would be truly fantastic if there were a way to tell Dorico this… somehow… so that the music could align “properly.” I realize this is esoteric and only SCORE could actually accommodate this notation, but if there were some way to designate this semantically as a property, it would be really useful. Example of the music is attached.
I don’t think I’m explaining this very well — but I know it’s also a moon-shot request, so maybe it doesn’t matter!
(I’m continually impressed by Dorico’s notation and the many, many things it does perfectly. I knew it was the future from the moment Daniel started blogging about it, so I’m thrilled that it has reached the point when I can use it to produce at least a subset of my work! Can’t wait for more!)
