Re: 17th Century moveably type font

I would not be impressed if you gave me a newly engraved partbook with this font to read. Well technically it's newly typeset, not newly engraved ;) OK, point taken regarding unneeded skeuomorphism and the superiority of scores. Scores are possible but very impractical due to the need for blank pie...

Re: 17th Century moveably type font

Ah, sorry, I didn't notice this thread and made one elsewhere, with an example: http://notat.io/viewtopic.php?f=7&p=6395 Apart from me geeking out, it would be very useful in case you composed something that you wanted to have performed in a Renaissance HIP style; it puts singers in the right mood i...

Renaissance-style moveable type setting with the new Serenissima font

I figured you people would be interested in this. The extremely awesome Early Music Sources project has released a font that mimics the look and workflow of late Renaissance typesetting, "for better or for worse" (mostly for worse, I think). It's fairly easy to use thanks to the use of ligatures, wh...

Re: MuseScore 3.0 released

Interesting this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hZxo96x48A (ps. warning: to much intensive, but some of the points well done). I love that video. Aside from the extremely long section on iconography, it's a great video to show someone what MuseScore is about. And as someone who did classical stu...

Re: Differentiation of text sizes in score and parts

MuseScore can do this too in the sense that style settings are not synchronized between score and parts after you've added the parts. The style menu has an "apply to all parts" button when inside a part, but not when changing things on the score. Something like the Lilypond mechanism would be ideal.

Re: MuseScore 3.0 released

Here's a recent, original composition (not by me) with what I thought was a very appealing engraving: https://musescore.com/r_d/scores/5482385?from=notification#comment-5180196 By the way, they're on version 3.0.5 now. A lot of the fixes are on the level of "how was this program functioning before??...

When to respell enharmonically?

Dear Notatio, I am arranging Robert Fuchs' double bass sonata whereby the piano becomes a woodwind quintet. It likes to modulate a lot and the piano already has double sharps, and this is exacerbated in the transposing parts. There are also instances where the piano transitions from sharps to flats ...

Re: MuseScore 3.0 released

It would be great to hear how you use MS and show us some of the examples. It is very hard to find appealing scores done with MS, but not impossible to do many great things with the software. All the best, O. I've already seen and read your thread some time ago with great interest, and I think we h...

Re: MuseScore 3.0 released

Did anyone have time to test it? I am on v2 because of the project. On the whole, I am very enthusiastic, although the biggest feature - the autoplacement - will have a greater impact on ad-hoc and educational users compared to professional engravers who occupy themselves with minutiae. As for me, ...

Re: Classical concerto for double bass in MuseScore

Yes, I meant on IMSLP. The parts that you can get from musescore.com are just automatically extracted from the score.
