Re: SMuFL creation

I don’t disagree with you at all. I’ll reach out to my contact at MM to see if there has been any progress lately. For what it’s worth, Bravura started out with the same heritage as Maestro, but Steinberg have added their own touch to it so that it no longer resembles it.

Re: SMuFL creation

I’d certainly be willing, but it’s copyright MM, so without their permission it’s a no-go. Besides, word on the street is that they’ve already embarked down this path on their own. Only time will tell if it manages to surface or not.

Re: From png to font type

If the PNG is sufficiently high resolution, I would use Inkscape’s image tracer to vectorize it, then you can either save as SVG or EPS and import those curves directly into FontForge into any character slot. Once you’ve got all the variants you need, then exporting as a font should be easy (or you ...

Re: Optical spacing

Unquestionably, the second grace note and the main note look too close together, but it should only need a small re-allocation of spacing to give it enough air on both sides.
