How Dorico is Better

Dorico includes many unique features that other scoring applications just don’t have. 
 

   

From the world experts


Dorico is designed by the team that developed Sibelius, with over 100 years’ experience between them. Starting from a blank sheet of paper, they have created a new masterpiece, in consultation with expert musicians, engravers and publishers. And backed by Steinberg, world leaders in audio, Dorico is the future-proof program everyone will still be using decades from now.

Flexible input and editing


Other scoring programs can produce good results, but this needs advance planning and patience, like writing text on a typewriter. Whereas Dorico is like a word processor, letting you edit, adapt and re-write with complete freedom. So it’s the only scorewriter you can compose or arrange straight into, without needing to fix the notation afterwards. And its streamlined note input and user interface feel so natural, you’ll soon forget you’re using software at all.

Superb engraving


Dorico has the best music engraving of any program. Developed in consultation with leading engravers and music publishers, it applies hundreds of automatic rules to produce first-class results without manual tweaking. Dorico incorporates far more expertise, research, algorithms and options than any other scorewriter ever developed.

Multiple movements


Handling scores that contain multiple movements, songs, exercises, etc. is a chore in other programs — but in Dorico it’s simple. No time-consuming adjustments are needed to deal with changes of instrumentation, key or time signature. You can even change staff size mid-score.

Advanced notations


Dorico’s rich support for advanced notations opens up whole new possibilities for your music. Define your own tonality systems, dividing the octave into any number of steps, with custom accidentals and key signatures. Write freely in open meter, adding or deleting barlines wherever you like. Create any number of voices on a staff, tuplets of any complexity — even across barlines — and slurs with any number of curves.

Page layout


Producing consistent page layouts in other programs can be very time-consuming, but Dorico makes it easy. It supports chainable music, text and graphics frames, giving you sophisticated DTP-style control. Define and apply master pages with automatic page numbers, headers and footers, and override the layout of individual pages wherever you like.

Sequencing built in


Dorico is the only professional scorewriter with a sequencer-style piano roll editor for fine adjustments to playback. Control VST 3 instruments directly, and define VST Expression Maps to access advanced playing techniques in your sample libraries.

  • Designed by the original core Sibelius development team, with over 100 years combined expertise. So they really know what they’re doing — and second time around, they’ve done it far better!
  • No monthly subscription or annual plan: Buy Dorico now and receive maintenance releases at no extra cost. You choose when you want to update to a future version, with simple, one-off upgrade pricing.
  • Import music from Sibelius via MusicXML format, and continue to collaborate with other Sibelius users by exporting MusicXML files, too.
  • More flexible notation: Insert and delete notes and barlines, or change time signatures at whim, and Dorico rewrites the music perfectly. Even advanced notations such as multiple simultaneous time signatures and tuplets across barlines are built in — no more clumsy workarounds!
  • High-performance world-class Cubase audio engine, with support for VST 3 instruments and effects.
