Steinberg releases Dorico SE free music notation software

Steinberg says Dorico SE brings a number of unique capabilities to free music notation software for the first time, particularly in the area of sound and playback, including:

- Sequencer-style Play mode, complete with piano roll editor, velocity editor, automation lanes for MIDI controllers, and a unique new dynamics lane that allows tweaking of the playback effect of dynamic markings written in the score.
- Support for all VST 3 instrument and effect plug-ins, in addition to the included HALion Sonic SE 3 sampler with more than 1,000 production-ready sounds, and a suite of 30 effects plug-ins.
- A full audio Mixer, with sends and inserts for effects, and a global effects channel.
- The same high-precision audio engine found in Steinberg's digital audio workstation, Cubase.
- Easy export of audio files in MP3 and WAV format.

The same workflows for inputting, editing and arranging music that make Dorico Elements and Dorico Pro so fast and easy to use are also included in Dorico SE, together with its single-window user interface, which puts everything you need within easy reach and one or two clicks of the mouse. Dorico SE also sports a comprehensive set of key commands that make it possible to fly through input and editing.

Dorico SE can open projects created in Dorico Elements and Dorico Pro, and projects created in other products in the family can be edited in Dorico SE provided they included only one or two players. Projects with a greater number of players can still be opened, played back and printed.

To help young composers and arrangers make a flying start with learning Dorico SE, a dedicated series of short tutorial videos is available on YouTube to lead new users step-by-step through the process of creating their first project and mastering Dorico SE's basic workflows.

Dorico SE is available to download from the Steinberg website completely free of charge.

Oh, well - never mind ...
I have no problems with my Cubase 10.5x 32 bit plugins, thanks to Jbridge.
It is important to start Cubase in Administrator Mode, otherwise you have to confirm each plugin individually.
I have downloaded Dorico today, but have not installed it yet.
Actually I don't really need it, because my Cubase Pro has a full notation, but looking at it doesn't hurt
