Hi folks I wanted to share with you my first composition using Dorico + Noteperformer. Initially I just wanted to learn the program by sketching out a little idea I had, but that lead me to another one, and somehow I ended up combining three little themes into a short orchestral suite Dorico is actually the first notation program I have ever worked with, so coming from more of a "midi-background" I might still be a little bit unfamiliar with all the notation details etc. As I wanted to write the piece as if it could be performed by live players, I'd be super grateful for any insights/tips regarding the orchestration that some of the more experienced people could give me I was really unsure about a lot of decisions I made. This is the Noteperformer export: http://amadeus-pakmur.com/NONTENDI Suite_02.mp3 and here is the score: http://amadeus-pakmur.com/Nontendi_suite_c.pdf http://amadeus-pakmur.com/Nontendi_suite_transposed.pdf I really have to say that I enjoyed working with a notation program and noteperformer. Although it might not sound as good as a fully programmed mockup, and there are also some things that noteperformer doesn't perform as it should, I think the overall result is quite decent (especially when I consider the amount of work that it needs to produce a mockup in cubase). So in general I think it is a great tool to give you a first impression and I think this will be my preferred way of working in the future.
