Re: Classical concerto for double bass in MuseScore

That's not Times New Roman, it's FreeSerif, the default font for text in MuseScore. I've used different fonts in the past, but now I want the guarantee that the score opens properly on any system (and I will only use fonts with a free software/free culture license). What is wrong with it specifical...

Re: Sibelius and font kerning

Have you checked how Sibelius fonts (Opus etc.) handle this problem? If I remember correctly, Sibelius has some unusual solutions for standard font problems (e.g. within the Opus Chords font). Maybe it is enough to replicate the way symbols are positioned within Opus Chords etc.

Re: A modern looking score in 2018?

So I did a little experimenting, trying to come up with a sans serif music font and testing whether it looked more "contemporary". Easier said than done. First thing I noticed is that there are different classes of music symbols that react differently to the attempt of making a sans serif version of...

Re: Typesetting em dashes in lyrics - best solution?

In modern book typography, the first case would look like this: [[American English: em dash, no space]] Then would Thy name—the Just, the Merciful— Strange dubious ... [[British English: en dash, space before and after dash; in the example below the en dash looks rather short, it should be longer th...

Re: A modern looking score in 2018?

I saw this and thought of this thread: http://dreibholz.com/berlin-philharmonic-notation/ Here is a video explaining the reason behind the project: https://www.coloribus.com/adsarchive/commercials/22950015/ I wonder if the font has ever been used in real life. And I wonder what members of the orches...

Re: The treble clef as handwritten by great composers

Stravinsky again, 1927. Bass clef looks kind of sad, though.

Re: [WORKBENCH] Brahms Op. 119, No. 1

I found this link to what looks like an official introduction to the National Edition: http://serwer1374796.home.pl/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/o_wydaniu_narodowym.pdf Is this what the Etudes look like as well? I'm not qualified to comment on the music engraving. But the typography looks really bad. ...

Re: [WORKBENCH] Brahms Op. 119, No. 1

As far as the quality of the actual output, I don't think they have a clue. I am afraid that Dorico is a publisher's and editor's dream come true: no more worrying about that pesky engraving stuff and expensive high quality engravers: Dorico achieves perfect results; every time, no matter who does ...
