New in Dorico Pro 3: More Beauty, more brains

Dorico 3 drives the state of the art in music notation software forward. Only Dorico 3 can produce a condensed conductor’s score in a single click. Dorico 3 also introduces powerful new features for guitar and harp, sophisticated new playback controls, and much more, wrapped up in a newly-refined and elegant user interface.


In a conductor’s score, music for multiple players is condensed onto a smaller number of staves, reducing the number of staves on each page and allowing each staff to be larger, aiding legibility. Producing a conductor’s score has always been laborious and time-consuming, requiring a great deal of planning and revision throughout the whole process, with almost no assistance from software – until now. Dorico 3 introduces the ability to create an intelligently-formatted conductor’s score with a single click, while still maintaining complete and correct instrumental parts. Profound step changes in productivity in music notation software come along perhaps once a decade: this is one of them.

Dorico 3 greatly enriches its support for notation for guitar and other fretted instruments. Choose whether to show music for each guitar as staff notation, guitar tab, or both: naturally, changes to the staff notation are automatically reflected in the tab, and vice versa. Edit the tuning of each string, and add or remove strings: Dorico 3 automatically handles fretboards with irregular fret spacing (such as dulcimer), or instruments where one or more strings is shorter than the others (such as banjo). If you choose to show guitar tab on its own, control how rhythms are shown, including support for enclosing half notes (minims) and longer to distinguish them from shorter note values. Idiomatic guitar techniques such as slides, bends, hammer-ons, pull-offs, and harmonics are all elegantly supported.

Guitar notations

In addition to tablature support, Dorico 3 introduces support for chord diagrams, including a library of hundreds of standard chord shapes, and the ability to quickly and easily design your own. For classical guitar notation, Dorico 3 provides comprehensive support for left- and right-hand fingering, including automatic placement of left-hand fingering within the staff, tucked in with the notes, as seen in the finest engraved publications. And improved string and capo indicators make it easy to provide all the information your performers will need.

Steinberg Dorico Pro 3 Product Overview

The electronic download of Dorico Pro 3 from Steinberg is the latest edition of their music notation software that is designed to deliver comprehensive, customizable, user-friendly scoring functions and built-in desktop publishing for composers, professors, musicians, and engravers in universities, studios, and film, TV, and game media production facilities. Dorico Pro 3 introduces updated features such as a condensed conductor's score with a single click, guitar notations, smart harp pedaling, updated playback controls, a comments section, and a newly refined user interface. Write, engrave, print, and play music notation for unlimited instruments, which can be sourced from the supplied 2000-sound 8GB library or your own VST3 plug-ins. The 30 included effects processors enable versatile tonal modification of your instrument sounds.

Input data via a mouse, keyboard, or MIDI keyboard and refine your arrangement in the sequencer-style piano MIDI editor. Dorico Pro 3 is designed to let you freely experiment with musical ideas; you can write in open meter without a time signature and later add or delete bar lines wherever they are needed. A single-window user interface places all the software's functions within easy reach, which is particularly convenient when working on a laptop. Smart score preparation tools allow you to bring together separate movements, works, sketches, or songs, in any combination, into score layouts for conductor or performer. Dorico Pro 3 lets you import and export MusicXML and MIDI files from Cubase or other DAWs, and export graphics in a variety of formats for pre-press work.

Attention has been lavished on every detail of the appearance of music. The automatic engraving engine provides extensive capabilities for graphical tweaking and editing and aims to produce aesthetically pleasing pages that meet the demands of the most discerning engravers.

It is built with the same 64-bit floating point audio engine found in Cubase and Nuendo and delivers sound at resolutions up to 192 kHz. It supports VST3-compatible virtual instruments and effects and comes with the HALion Sonic SE player and the complete HALion Symphonic Orchestra library. Dorico Pro 3 is compatible with macOS and Windows systems.
