Some great videos with Alan Silvestri. Makes me even more tempted to make the switch from logic and Sibelius.
You can import tempo maps with midi files. It's part of the midi protocol. Should work with all apps that allow midi import. I didn't try with Sibelius of Finale but I don't know why it shouldn't work.
Whoops! My bad. I agree the ability to move sections around on the fly is a big deal. I’ve seen junkie xl talk about this as well. Steinberg really knows their market
Here is part 2 by the way. I think the original post had 2 links to the first video.
What I find compelling about this is how he talks about workflow and how the software really helps / enhances it. The example about keying in a rhythmic part quickly without thinking about each note's duration and also how easy it is to move sections around makes a strong case.
I use all three but mainly Sibelius. If I have made a score in Sibelius I can't import a midi file with tempo information. I have to use the midi-file as a starting point, meaning all my libraries and settings from my template are not available. Dorico has really nailed it.Surely it's possible, right? I have never tried in Sibelius. Thomas, I seem to remember you use Finale? (but maybe I am wrong)... so it's not possible in Finale?
You can, every DAW and notation program can import midi (and xml for notation programs), but for Sibelius there are extra steps:
And my point is that House Style is not nearly enough to get me up to speed. My template includes much more than that.You can, every DAW and notation program can import midi (and xml for notation programs), but for Sibelius there are extra steps:
1. Import the midi into a new project
2. Import house style
3. Add instruments
4. Copy and paste notes and dynamics / expression text from previous cue to new cue
So essentially you are creating a new Sibelius file from scratch, whereas this can be done in one step in Dorico. That's a time saver.
