Steinberg has updated its music notation software Dorico to v1.1. This release introduces sophisticated support for chord symbols. While chord symbols are added by playing a MIDI keyboard or typing on the computer, Dorico automatically writes chord symbols in any of six pre-set conventions, and lets users tweak the appearance using dozens of options.
Other new features in Dorico 1.1 include:
Piano pedaling with comprehensive support for advanced techniques — including partial pedaling, changing the pedal level over time and more;
– New repeat ending lines for 1st and 2nd time bars, perfectly positioned;
– Unique intelligent note spelling for MIDI step input, which automatically avoids common enharmonic errors during input;
– Expanded editing operations, allowing users to move dynamics, slurs, hairpins, octave lines and other notations easily with the mouse, intelligently snapping them to ideal positions;
– New selection features, allowing users to quickly select items of a certain kind for further editing;
– Comprehensive features for precise editing of rhythmic spacing, designed in consultation with experienced professional engravers;
– Expanded import and export features, allowing users to import music from other projects and MusicXML files into a current project, and export sections of a project in Dorico, MIDI, MusicXML and audio formats.
