Re: 17th Century moveably type font

I have the IM FELL typefaces (free downloads), which are similarly based on 17th Century Text typefaces. They would work well with Serenissima. Again, I only use them for simulating old pages and deliberate 'antique' effects. Scores are possible but very impractical due to the need for blank pieces ...

Someone has made a font that 'emulates' the moveable type used to print music in the late 16th and 17th centuries: not for your notation app, but in any standard word processor. Music type used to consist of a single piece of metal that contained the note at a given pitch and the staff lines in one ...

Still haven't increased the frame limit?
I suspect that if they didn't increase the frame limit when they created the new file format, nor when they changed all the data structures to 64-bit, that it's not going to improve any time soon.

Any more than that, and the staple buckles. If you're using thinner paper, you might get a few more sheets thro...

Re: Best way to notate long(ish) voiced consonant?

(m) under the note when you want humming to begin. So doo - (m) I would include the m in 'doom' as well as having it later. Underlay needs to 'show the word' so the singers can identify it, and only then 'show the place' for special effects such as this. I have seen stuff like 'pea - - - - - - - - ...

Re: Best way to notate long(ish) voiced consonant?

Re: MuseScore 3.0 released

Thanks, that's a nice review.

It's very welcome that software can empower people to get their music onto the page in functional, reasonably attractive documents without too much effort.
Engravers will always want more, of course! ;-)
