Dorico update 1.1 available

June 28, 2017

Today we are happy to announce the availability of Dorico 1.1. This is the most significant update yet to our new professional scoring application, and adds several top features most requested by users.

The headline new feature is support for chord symbols, which can be input by playing on the MIDI keyboard or typing on the computer keyboard. The workflow is so smooth, it’s possible to input chord symbols as fast as you can think of them. Dorico automatically produces the desired chord symbol, and allows you to tweak their appearance using dozens of global options and you can even edit each chord symbol in a graphical editor.

Other new features include:

  • New repeat ending lines, created in moments and positioned perfectly — completely automatically
  • New piano pedalling, with the most comprehensive for advanced techniques – including partial pedalling, changing the pedal level over time, and more — of any scoring software
  • Unique intelligent note spelling for MIDI step input, which can automatically correct common enharmonic errors as you input
  • Expanded editing operations, allowing you to move dynamics, slurs, hairpins, octave lines and other notations easily with the mouse, intelligently snapping them to ideal positions
  • New selection features, allowing you 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 project management features, allowing you to import music from other projects and MusicXML files into your current project, and export sections of your project in Dorico, MIDI, MusicXML and audio formats

Dorico 1.1 includes dozens of other improvements and fixes. This update is recommended for all Dorico users, and is available for download from the Steinberg website. For detailed information, please refer to the corresponding version history on the download page.
