Re: A very dotted note (Notational curiosity vol2.)

The page Extremes of Conventional Music Notation says: 3. Most augmentation dots {B&I 4.6, 6.7} Quadruple dots appear in Liszt: Piano Concerto #2 (1839, rev. 1848; Kalmus ed.), Allegro deciso, mm. 327 and 331; Schumann: String Quartet no. 1, Op. 41 no. 1 (1842), III, mm. 16, 17, 33, 34, etc. (contri...

Re: Accidentals alignment

The different widths of staff lines vs. ledger lines in the Lilipond examples do bother me a lot more than everything else, I have to admit.

The GUIDO Note Server from University of Darmstadt was and is online since 2001 and is capable of notating music in a web browser.

Re: Finale update

It would be easier to decide if you knew for certain that everyone would upgrade at the same time. Actually, I'm always happy not to upgrade at the same time as the majority of users. The german version usually appears some months after the inital english release, and thus we used to get the ".1"-V...

Re: tied quavers everywhere!

Just for the record, here's a source: Henry Mancini recommended this practice in his book "Sounds and Scores" from 1973 where he describes his arranging and orchestration techniques for Hollywood orchestras in the 60s/70s:

Re: [puzzle] Two voices in one staff

There is no a direct solution to "cut" the slur in Finale, but there are workarounds. 1. Enter with two slurs, measure attached, than fine tune them to look like they are a single one, but cut. 2. Enter a normal slur with preparation to be "cut". Than when finished, save it as PDF, than open that p...

Re: "On cue"

I agree, but I'm trying to avoid using multiple mixed languages in the score. So my choices are Italian (all of the tempos and tempo changes), or French (the title pages, movement list, instrument names). I suppose French would work okay. Translated literally, it would be "sul segno". If you like i...

Re: Does score quality influence performance?

Score quality influences indeed several things, not only the performance of a piece: it influences on a quite subconscious level the first encounter of a musician with a work. It influences how fast, deep and willingly the musician will build up a personal link to the piece it influences how much a ...

Re: Feature Request Forum at MM

Indeed, Michael Johnson's participation sounds promising. In the old forums, MM didn't notice or react to feature requests at all, so it's encouraging that such a dedicated forum exists and that Michael is active there on a regular basis. No one knows whether or which requested features will make th...

"Broadway Style": always 4 measures per staff?

Hello, when playing in musical shows here in Germany, we usually get the sheet music from the US or UK publisher, which means that the music is written with 4 measures per staff. I vaguely remember that someone called that the "Broadway layout", maybe it was in one of the equally meaningful and ente...
