Re: Berklee guide to music notation

I bought it longer ago. It is meant for students to learn music notaiton resp. improve their skills. Homwork pages included.
There is nothing particular on "theory", at least I did not notice that, when browsing through.

Re: Support Notatio

Also, the Columbus Soft (that produces PriMus software) has also very generously donated - many thanks, as well! (I am not sure if they are the forum member, or just a visitor).
That's me, Christof Schardt.
Just wanted to thank you for providing this extremly helpful resource and community.

Re: Automatic Staff/System Spacing

Absolutely astonishing work, Jan. Agreeing to most of Johns points I would add three remarks regarding the orchestra score: 1. violin 1, bar 4,5: harpins significantly closer to the lower staff, which irritates. Obviously caused by the low mf in the bare before. But later we see other dynamics place...

Re: swing eighths question

playback, I found an alignment solution: I entered a rest as the middle character of a triplet, hid the rest, and also hid the "3" of the triplet.

Indeed, these are the p...
