Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Steinberg's award-winning audio engine (Nuendo, Cubase) and virtual instrument library come to an intuitive notation suite: Dorico. Steinberg Dorico aims to set the gold standard for music notation software. Its wizard-like approach breaks down composition into five steps, or modes. Setup mode lets you plan parameters from the outset, such as how many performers your music is for. Separate Write and Engrave modes let you handle the composition and presentational elements of your score separately and completely independent of one another. Finally, Play and Print modes allow you to audition your music and commit it to paper once you're happy with it. The included HALion SE workstation and HALion Symphonic Orchestra library will bring your creative works to life. And a suite of high-end VST channel strips and FX will ready your pieces for the 22nd century.

  • Hear your pieces played as you intended
  • Open meter supports modern composition
Dorico is created by musicians for musicians

It's clear from Steinberg's hardware and software products that its developers are deeply inculcated in music production. Dorico is no exception. Sweetwater found its single-pane layout and wizard-like composition process a refreshing alternative to other notation softwares. Dorico aims to let you, the composer, arrange music in an intuitive way that lets you see beyond the computer screen.

Hear your pieces played as you intended

What could be less inspiring than hearing your arrangements played back with all the audio integrity of an Amiga 500? Dorico's included HALion instruments libraries give you real-time feedback of precisely which instruments your piece is calling for. The HALion SE workstation includes first-class instruments for modern productions, while the HALion Symphonic Orchestra library offers captivating percussion, horns, and strings for more traditional works.

Open meter supports modern compositions

Steinberg Dorico supports open meter for those times when the most direct way to notate your music is by inputting notes independent of meter - as many notes as you can fit in a bar. This also keeps pieces fresh with stream-of-thought composition, allowing you to come back and clean up bar lines after the fact.
