Re: Introduction - and questions regarding Figurato

Ok, no problem. I will try to explain it in my simple words, but keep in mind that I am not so good as some of people here on the forum - for fonts. An OTF font has more features and thus ability to combine letters, among others. For instance if you type two f letters after each other you will get a...

@OCTO, no, there is a font called Metrico, created for the purpose of creating metronome marks and other metric equations.
Thanks, good to know that it is another one!

Re: Metrico: Font for metric equations

I think it is called Bravura Text, if I am not mistaken. Try that.

Re: Partial measures: bar numbering and volta repeats

I agree with OCTO: if you want to avoid a repeat mark at the beginning of Var. VIII without risk of confusion, put a final bar line at the end of the previous variation. Yes, or put more distance from the previous system, so that it looks as a separate "movement". Indeed I am bit confused as it is ...

Re: Partial measures: bar numbering and volta repeats

Edit: off-topic question: Do I need a start repeat bar 𝄆 at the beginning of var. VIII? Yes, I believe. The repeat symbol is of the ending or final bar line-style (thin+bold line) and it affects the form. The back-repeat bar line looks for another final bar line or forward-repeat barline. If none i...

Re: Partial measures: accidentals

It can happen that one will start rehearsing after the double bar line: therefore you need to repeat the accidental.
In the voice 2, RH, measure 44, I would like to see the B-flat courtesy as well.

The same with a long measure that is broken: yes, repeat the accidental.

Re: Violin Family - String Numbering

the only reason I would care to write out the string numbers isn't because I think I know better than a professional string-player, no, it's simply to save a few seconds in a quick-paced recording session. Is that even worth the hassle? Yes, Yinyue, I understand that. But actually, this is counterp...

Re: Violin Family - String Numbering

I think the OP meant to write in string numbers (III, II - eg. sul D, sul G) rather than fingerings, but it seems not idiomatic all the same. I see. Indeed! As you say, the roman numbers or "sul..." is the way it should be notated. The strings should be notated only in the case there are multiple c...

Re: Violin Family - String Numbering

This is possible (pitches), but please if you are not string musician do not write fingerings. The fingering you propose is not impossible but is "wrong" since nobody would play so, and it would result in a very bad sound.

This is played by 1-4-0 and it is not needed to be notated.
