The beauty and balance of Dorico's output is unrivaled, with hundreds of options to control every aspect of your music's appearance. Dorico also allows you to use your VST instruments and effects to produce great-sounding playback.
A recent upgrade for Dorico is the addition of not only the most sophisticated support for chord symbols in any software, but also repeat endings, piano pedaling, editable note spacing, huge improvements to input and editing in Write mode, greatly expanded functionality for the piano roll editor in Play mode, and much, much more. Chord symbols in Dorico have a number of unique capabilities: firstly, they are system-attached, which means that they can appear in any part layout without needing to be copied and pasted to other staves and then hidden in the score layout; secondly, you can use any text font you like for chord symbols, and Dorico will automatically and intelligently format them in a manner appropriate for that font; thirdly, they have meticulously researched and implemented support for eight different conventions of chord symbols in use in Europe and the US, and allow you to choose between them with a single click; fourthly, we have the smoothest and fastest MIDI input of chord symbols of any software. And these are only some of the ways in which chord symbols in Dorico have been carefully designed to be as flexible and efficient as possible.
