The ideal version of Dorico for professionals and educators.
Dorico helps you write, print and play back music notation to the highest professional standards. Created by the world experts, Dorico combines the finest engraving of the last millennium with the cutting-edge technology of the next. The result: a masterpiece of design that musicians will be using for decades to come.
Natural and Effortless
Dorico is like a driverless car. Its artificial intelligence does all the tiresome work for you, leaving you free to sit back and create. Just as you won’t have to think about steering, pedals and indicators, Dorico expertly handles notation, engraving, playback and part preparation for you. You’ll wonder how you ever put up with map-reading or changing gear. And you’ll shake your head at the hours you used to waste fixing rhythms and ties, tweaking engraving, searching manuals and on complex workarounds. Fast, streamlined and effortless – Dorico feels so natural, you’ll soon forget you’re using software at all. Soon, driverless cars will be everywhere. And everyone who writes music will use Dorico.
Notation and Engraving
Effortlessly write music and produce clear, elegant pages that rival the finest traditional music engraving. Dorico understands notation better than any other program – and even most musicians! As you input music, it uses sophisticated rules of rhythm and pitch to notate it as clearly as possible. Insert, delete or edit notes, bars, clefs, time signatures, etc., and Dorico rewrites the music with exceptional skill. No adjusting required – Dorico gets it spot on every time. In fact, it’s the only scorewriter you can compose or arrange straight into without needing to make constant corrections. Dorico has the easiest input of any scoring software. Instead of the confusion of input methods in other programs, Dorico is streamlined and simple. Write music fluently with your keyboard or mouse, and save time with easy-to-remember key commands.
Dorico engraves music better than almost any human can – producing beautifully clear results all by itself. And clearer results mean more accurate sight-reading, and shorter rehearsals. We spent years consulting experienced engravers, leading music publishers, and hundreds of books and scores, to design the world’s most sophisticated engraving algorithms. No other program incorporates anything like this level of expertise. Attention has been lavished on every detail, from the meticulous design of the 3000 symbol Bravura font, to positioning rules for every notated element. Dorico can space music more tightly than any other program, tucking and kerning accidentals, etc. so that fast rhythms aren’t distorted.
Dorico fits the way you work to help you reach maximum efficiency – whether you're on the move with your laptop, or using a complete studio set-up. Dorico has a clear, simple design that lets you focus on the music. And it’s as efficient to use on a laptop as in a studio with multiple large displays. Dorico is streamlined into five activities — Setup, Write, Engrave, Play and Print — that you can switch between with just one click. Collapsible panels provide instant access to features, and you can hide them to see as much music as possible. Open as many windows onto the same project as you like: keep one in Write mode for input and editing, another in Play mode for tweaking playback, or change modes within the same window with one click. Switch between tabs for the conductor’s score and instrumental parts, or split the window to work on both at once. Dorico helps you do your best work without getting in the way.
Parts and Layout
No job is too complex for Dorico. Full scores plus instrumental parts, large projects containing many sections or pieces, and complex mixtures of music, text and graphics, are all surprisingly easy to produce. Dorico makes instrumental parts simple. It automatically creates them in the same file as the full score, perfectly laid out for you. And when you edit the score, the parts change too. Print them all out with one click — it couldn’t be easier. Dorico makes it easy to write multi-movement and multi-section works — such as sonatas, symphonies, songbooks, film/TV scores, musicals and operas. Each file can contain as many separate sections or pieces of music as you like. Create several songs or exercises, then compile them into a book in any order. Even write a pile of sketches, and work them up into a finished piece — all in the same file.
