What's New In Dorico Pro 2

Dorico Pro 2 now offers video support, allowing you to import video and compose to picture, displaying markers and timecode in the score. Attach your video into your session and play it back with the dedicated video window. The new tempo automation controls in Play mode allow you to line markers up with beats to find a tempo for the whole cue. The new smart staff management tools make it easy to lay out even the most complex music. Easily add or remove staves from instruments at any point, or add ossia staves above or below to show alternatives and more. You are now able to copy music from one instrument and paste it to another as slashes, change melodic material to slashes, or quickly input slashes with or without stems, and even automatically fill a range of bars with slashes. More updates include quicker ways to create bar repeats, automatic repeat structure playback, support for 2 conventions of time signatures (one for the scoring stage, other for the concert hall), and quickly pasting music to more or fewer players.

Write & Engrave

Inputting music is quick and easy, allowing you to use both your keyboard or mouse, plus keyboard shortcuts. Your MIDI keyboard can also be used for added convenience. Dorico's unique approach to handling and notating rhythms works by storing the way each individual note sounds instead of the notation on the page, giving you the freedom and flexibility to notate every note according to the musical connect, with the program's advanced understanding of musical rules. Easily write multi-movement and multi-section works such as symphonies, film/TV scores, musicals and operas. Each file can contain as many separate sections or pieces of music as you want. Create several songs or exercises, then compile them into a book in any order. Even write a pile of sketches all in the same file.

Superb Sounds

Realistic sounds is what makes your music truly convincing. Dorico Pro 2 features Steinberg's complete HALion Symphonic Orchestra library, as well as over 1300 sounds from HALion Sonic SE 2 covering a range of instruments from strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion, all complete with articulations, bowings and playing techniques recorded across the full range of dynamics. Dorico sports the same world-class audio engine as Cubase and Nuendo, delivering pristine sound quality. Additionally, Dorico Pro 2 supports all VST-3 compatible virtual instruments and effects so you can integrate your favourite processors with your work.

Intuitive Layout

With Efficient Windows Dorico Pro 2 offers a clear, simple and streamlined design that places every major control function at your fingertips. The 5 modes are clearly laid out across the top of the application for easy switching between them. Panels are also collapsible to provide easy access to features. As many windows as you like can be opened onto the same project, meaning you can have one in Write mode for input and editing, and the next in Play mode for tweaking and playback.
