Daniel Spreadbury has been working on Notation software since Sibelius days, he and the team moved over to Steinberg when the team left Avid back in 2012, and are working on the new Dorico notation software. There is currently a 14 strong team working on the project, so its clear Steinberg are aiming for something pretty serious with the new software.

At the core of the team is  Daniel Spreadbury, a classically trained musician, he really knows his stuff. With Steinberg's forthcoming release of Dorico, we wanted to find out what makes it different to other notation software.

The intelligent processing of direct score editing is one, with the Dorico engine knowing how to adjust live score input with note length,  rhythm and bar divisions adjusting to fit the edits. As well as that, it knows how to score for many different instruments, handling the correct transpositions so that your printed output will make sense to the musician.

With a VST playback and lane based key editor, it also allows you to deal work up a score with the correct instruments sounding as they should - it will come with a version of the HALion orchestral library for this very purpose, but you can of course add your own libraries into the mix too.

When you are done, the final print out can be worked on to DTP level, allowing you to create publishable music scores - or just quick and ready for use. It looks like this package will be able to produce final print ready output that can be used for commercial publishing, or PDF, JPG and other formats.

Dorico is expected to ship in Q4 2016, with an active team of developers committed to working on future features, indeed they encourage you to engage with them and tell them what else you want to see.
