Steinberg Dorico

Steinberg today announced the release of Dorico, their next-generation scoring application, with a whole new way of working with music notation. Dorico has been designed by a team of specialized developers and experts to be used by aspiring and professional composers alike. An uncluttered single-window user interface for both laptops and studio machines offers high-performance tools and versatile page layout options for an efficient workflow. The graphical output gives attention to the finest intricacies of music engraving. Dorico also comes with a host of VST instruments and effects, to sound as great as it looks.

Anthony Hughes, UI/UX designer for Dorico:

Music is at the heart of our design philosophy for Dorico. We wanted to build something new and powerful for musicians everywhere that has an inherent musical awareness, is intelligently organized and adapts to your personal preferences. We are extremely excited to be making Dorico available and to see what people create with it.

Steinberg Dorico is available now for $559.99. You may also be able to crossgrade from Sibelius, Finale, or Notion for $279.99. Dorico requires OS X 10.11 El Capitan or macOS 10.12 Sierra.
