It’s an ordinary OpenType font
Hm, I am confused now. I believed it is a latex system for just music analysis, not just a font. If you could make a word-type of document that includes some of the examples would be nice to inspect.

Music Type Foundry - question

Hello Abraham and others, Which font in the Music Type Foundry is the most developed one: number of glyphs, number of complete (=non crossing over) symbols? I just wonder because I want to test another font in order to make a more "bold" score. Bravura (Norfolk, Fravura) looks pretty advanced. I am ...

Re: Copyright question (Schoenberg Serenade).

So, even though you own a copy of the work, to download a copy scanned from a website that is not private storage of your materials means that you are effectively downloading an illegal copy of that work. Someone else scanned that work from their own copy and provided a means for you to download it...

Re: References on harmonic analysis.

Is this similar to what you’re looking for? That is absolutely wonderful ! I am sad it was not available at the time I did my teaching papers for the university... -- Can it be used, and how, in other-than-LP notation software? There would be eventually a good idea to implement this onto a PDF base...

Re: Notation of the repetition across multiple tempi changes

Hm, I see I haven't been clear enough indeed...

I will try to visualise with a simple example, written by hand.
Hold on, I will be back.

Otherwise you'd produce something absurdly complicated that doesn't actually help.
Well said.

Notation of the repetition across multiple tempi changes

I have a doubt how to notate this particular problem. I have several lines/instruments in the score, and independent accelerando. The first line A starts playing at T=48. The phrase is not according to the time signature neither the beats, so the initial "simple" rhythm becomes more complex across t...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Hm... 45 minutes. Interesting! I don't know how much it would take in Finale, but this is pretty awesome - as being not edited score. EDIT: Actually I have played the solo part of this concerto several times. It is a wonderful piece. I managed up to measure 26 only, so far. Humour aside, here is my ...

Look how Brahms notates alternating notes between the pianist's hands in his second piano concerto! He doesn't even bother to show the half bar in the right hand once the pattern is established.

Brahms, a master of simplicity!

Re: Simple syncopation notation

Showing this as cross-staffed 16ths would give a non-legato impression. The only thing I see here interesting is M214. That measure is a copy of M212 except that there are additional whole notes :6 . As it is impossible to play without pedal, I believe that the pedal info is somehow missing in M212...

Re: Simple syncopation notation

Dear Brooks, Welcome to the forum. Your scoring in Dorico is very nice. About your question: while it is nothing theoretically wrong with it (and that notation definitely could be applied for two different instruments), I assume that a better way to notate it for pianist would be to have cross-staff...
