Steinberg Dorico 4 notation software Now Available


Steinberg Dorico 4 notation software adds new MIDI and workflow features for composers.


Steinberg has introduced Dorico 4, a new version of its notation and composition software. Each and every Dorico product has been updated, from the free iPad and SE variants to the more comprehensive Elements and Pro editions.


The updated version is to speed up your workflow, and there are plenty of new tools designed to help you do that. These include a dedicated MIDI Key Editor in Write mode, which runs alongside the standard notation, and Smart MIDI import, which is designed to make it easier to bring large orchestral templates into the software.


Allied to this is polyphonic MIDI transcription. Regardless, you are importing MIDI or playing from a keyboard, different parts are now separated. Improvements have also been made to the Insert mode, which enables you to make rhythmic and musical changes mid-piece, and you can now make melodic and rhythmic transformations just by clicking.


Dorico 4 highlights include new ways to record: version 4 comes with an onscreen keyboard, fretboard and drum pads. Elsewhere, The Play mode has been streamlined, and the rebuilt mixer promises to be more responsive.


Other Dorico 4 highlights include native support for Apple silicon Macs and a new licensing system that removes the need for the USB-elicenser and enables you to simply sign-in to the software using your Steinberg ID.


Dorico 4 is available now, with pricing starting at $3.99/month for Dorico for iPad and $99.99 for Dorico Elements 4. See the Steinberg website for details.
