I am posting an orchestration of mine here, intended mostly to initate a conversation about NPPE, which is the new software element of NotePerfomer that Arne Wallander introduced this summer with the free NP4 update.
Basically NPPE is an extension program of NP that allows you to plug-in certain high-end third-party libraries without ever leaving your notation program, automatically programmed to follow the score the same way NP itself does. Moreover, you can mix and match different libraries quite easily, depending on taste/budget/computer capacity.
I've been playing with it a lot this summer (and specifically this orchestration of the Beethoven F# Piano Sonata, op. 78). While I still find some tweaking necessary for the best possible results, I am able to do 95% of that in Dorico and/or refining the notation.
To me, this is a wonderful development! You may recall previous converstaions on this forum where I was trying to do something similar on my own, with mixed success...
Knowing this crowd is mostly notation software folks, I thought you should all be aware of the option if you're looking for higher quality mockups. Happy to answer questions and share my tips and tricks too, if there is interest.
This audio is a Dorico export of Cinematic Studio Samples Strings/Winds/Brass, with NP timpani. I did export individual instrument stems and add reverb/some EQ in Cubase as final steps. Feedback on any of it is much appreciated.
