Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Produces high quality scores
The scores produced by Dorico look really nice on paper and on the screen, and much better than any other software I've used, making this an ideal software for engravers.
Pro Great support team
Pro Suitable for contemporary music
Developers are aware of the needs of contemporary music (experimental notation, accidentals on each note, nested tuplets) and will add even more features to meet them.
Pro An intuitive interface
The interface makes the use very intuitive. Easy to use, for musicians.
Ranging from $150 to $844 (depending on the version), Dorico is by no means a cheap application. The price can be rather painful for students, or people who just want to try notation.
