This video takes you another step closer to the intuitive use of Dorico. You will learn how to work with tuplets, how to input triplets and what you can do with them in the scoring application.
The tuplets popover is very powerful, this video shows you how to use it to input tuplets and work with them.
Find out about the key commands you need to put in rather complicated tuplet rhythms such as nested tuplets and get a feeling of how intuitively Dorico operates.
To change the looks of the tuplets Dorico holds several properties ready. Whether you feel like displaying brackets or not or how the number is formatted, simply click on a tuplet and the properties show up but we’ll leave the introduction to Anthony Hughes in this video.
We hope you find this video entertaining and useful. If you like what you see, please leave a comment and tell us what you think. Thank you.

You can only add a tuplet bracket by making a tuplet (and then turn it off if you don't want it to show) but you can import graphics or potentially use our playing technique editor to create what you need. We don't yet have a way to draw items freehand though.
Dorico Thank you very much! But with your answer another question is coming into my mind: is it possible to add tuplet brackets without any impact like a graphic but adjustable?
Thanks in advance and I love Dorico! I’m a proud owner!
Dorico I have to correct myself a little bit. For example: a third note is as „long“ as a third of a whole tone. That means it’s one note from a half note triplet. Therefore a sixth note is a note from a quarter note sextuplet (or a quarter note triplet) because it divides a whole note in six equal parts. I now it’s hard to explain without a picture but I tried at least. Now my question is, is it possible to use these kind of divisions and say: „I want to have 4/6 as meter.“?
Dorico 7 like septuplets of 8ths. Or 6 from sixtuplets. I’m talking about irrational time signatures like Adam Neely describe them. Only for the case you know him. He‘s a musician and YouTuber. Basically my question is, is it possible to use other denominators than 1, 2, 4, 8 and so on and so forth?
Yes you can. In the Engraving options > Tuplets you can set your preferences such as whether the ratio and bracket should always be shown or not, and the number of repeated tuplets before the ratio and bracket can be hidden.
Weird thing happens when I click the tuplet number and delete it. Turns my quintuplet quarter notes into tied dotted half-note & half note inside a single 3\4 bar. I can send the file. Also, all this messing around with the shift+N is absurd. Some things work when it's on, or when it's off, and IMO it would be better without it.
Yes, it is possible at the moment to delete the tuplet number and keep the notes. In the future we may also be able to do the opposite by selecting some notes and making them into a tuplet. Shift - N (or press enter) for the caret enables the difference between entering notes and editing existing notes.
Triplets do not seem to work properly in Dorico (I have a trial version). If I remove the number (I don't want it to be shown for all repeated triplets) and try to copy the triplet, Dorico copies it as non-triplet. And when I tried to swap two voices, one of which was based on triplets and the other not, Dorico changed non-triplets to triplets and vice versa, creating complete mess.
I'm not sure on the exact case, but I didn't find the same situation when I tried what you mention above - the tuplet was also copied even when not shown. Again, if you want to send me your file I'll have a look. Also, there is an Engraving Options > Tuplet section where you can set the number of repeated tuplets before ratio and bracket can be hidden - that way you don't have to go and hide them, they'll hide automatically based on your preference (default is 3).
We don't have a Rewire option yet to e.g. synchronise playback between Dorico and a DAW. We are looking into options. Currently Dorico is VST3 compatible (and some VST2) if you are just looking to use VST effects etc though.
It isn't possible yet, but we will likely add it in the future. Many people prefer to use 'step' time so that they don't have to go back and fix mistakes they made later, but we understand some people want to play to a metronome.
Hey you guys are great! Thanks for getting back to me. Turns out, as would be the case, that the minute I posted that comment I figured out how to do it and it worked fine! Sod's law, right? Sorry for the inconvenience :/
Child marriages are common:
On a recent day, eight community elders sat in a [refugee] camp, some chewing khat, the narcotic leaf favored by most Yemeni men. Seven have married off their girls this year.
Even Salim, the elder who worked at the charity, is preparing to marry off his two daughters, ages 13 and 14. "I want to feel secure of their futures, if only for economic reasons," he said.
Mohammad Ali al-Ansi married off his two girls, ages 13 and 14, in April. "My heart is bleeding inside, but I was forced to do this," he said. "I have no job. Its difficult for me to feed my 10 children." He received $1,600 in dowry for each of his girls, he said. But after paying for their weddings and meeting other debts, the money has nearly run out. "If things get worse, theres no doubt Ill marry off my 12-year-old daughter," Ansi said.
More on Ansis 14-year-old daughter Fatma, married to 21-year-old Zaid:
Fatma spent her day cooking and washing clothes for her in-laws. When asked the name of her husbands family, Fatma didnt know it. She remembers her father telling her and her sister, Amal, that the family needed money. She remembers that Amal was in tears because her new husband was taking her to another region. The two sisters have not seen each other since their weddings.
"I am too young to be married," Fatma said. "I want to study. I want to learn how to write. I have sacrificed for my family," she continued, her voice dropping to a whisper.
Minutes later, her husband arrived at the tent, and Fatma went silent. He said Fatma was "at a good age to marry." When asked if she could attend school, he shook his head no. "Shes a little too old for school," he said.
Female sexual freedom among the Tuareg : Flora Drury has written up the sex habits of the Saharas Muslim Tuareg people based on the work by Henrietta Butler. Some excerpts:
Their men became known as the blue men of the Sahara because the dye from their distinctive indigo scarves rub off onto their faces giving them a mysterious air. The Tuareg evoke images of a long forgotten and romantic age.
