    Default Dorico 3 SE

    I was just looking through the forums and realized that there isn't a place for talking about technology and ukuleles, so this goes in the "Uke Talk" thread.

    I wanted to let everyone know that Steinberg just released Dorico 3 SE, which is a free version (two part) of Dorico, their answer to Finale and Sibelius.

    In reality, the core of the Dorico team was the British team of Sibelius (where Sibelius started), and Avid (who owns Sibelius) decided to farm out development of Sibelius to Eastern Europe (massive cost savings) and fired the whole team. Steinberg contacted them, and offered them a chance to make their own software from scratch--and something like two to three years later, Dorico was introduced.

    At any rate, you can buy the full Dorico or other versions, but the SE version gives you two voices.

    For those of you wanting to create tabs or lead sheets, Dorico SE seems to have all the functionality you would ever need.

    Yes, there are many other options, some free (e.g. MuseScore), some paid (e.g. Notion). But I think Dorico SE is worth a look, as the price is right. Check it out if you would like!

    www.dorico.com

    P.S. I do not work for Dorico in any way.

    Thanks for the info and link. I'm sure this will be useful for lots of people.

    The FREE version needs to be selected from the menu row on the product page. I did not see it immediately, so I am putting this here in case it is not obvious to others.

    Oddly, I cannot find a list of system requirements, or if this will run on Windows, Mac or Linux. Maybe it's just me?

    Also, an annoyance to me is that when you click the download link, it requires you to create an account and give your email address.

    This is also true for the trial version.

    So FYI to anyone looking into this.

    I have too many different email addresses, logins and passwords already, which I try to limit these days and don't need any more. It's so overwhelming.

    I must be getting old

    I have a subscription to Sibelius Ultimate, the latest Finale, but can this free Dorico do uke tabs and fretboards?
