Re: SCORE-based fonts

There has been some discussion, and should be implemented as part of the SMuFL standard, a font property related to a “size”. I wouldn’t expect any software to support this properly anytime soon since it’s an enormous undertaking creating even one font let alone multiple optical sizes and there’s r...

Re: MuseScore 3.6 - A Massive Engraving Overhaul!

Despite the attention that the flags got, I don't like the flags - particularly the downstem. They look a bit pinched. And various other things. However, it has made me get back to work on Sebastian, and I hope to be sharing that with you soon. (And I both welcome and dread OCTO's keen eyes....!) I...

Re: Review of Finale v2.0

That’s approximately $1500 in today’s money (2020). What a price tag.

Re: Dorico 3.5.10 released

Aruvarb is not intended for use in Dorico. It’s just a re-encoded version of Bravura so that Finale users can use it more easily.

Re: contemporary music fonts

In addition to Bravura as OCTO suggested, I'd recommend looking into the neueweise fonts for an incredible variety of less traditional symbols.

Re: LilyPond 2.20.0 release

I understand exactly what you mean, benwiggy. I relate it to documents created by LaTeX. They are very easy to identify based on fonts, formatting, styles, etc. Most users know how to use it and seldom about the intricate details that are required to give it a personal feel outside of fonts. LilyPon...
