How about:
Completely independent time signatures (at least visually), completely independent bar-lines (at least visually)?

Re: "On cue"

It would be worth to know what you want to achieve?
"on cue" is quite satisfying. Italian is not the only musical language.

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

I don't want to advertise myself, but take a look at the latest Scoring Notes post if you are interested! Yes, please DO advertise! We all need more information about Dorico's (but also others') progress. The examples look lovely. The only concern about Dorico (a pure visual concern) is - the slur....

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Thanks Knut for your review. I am still waiting for Dorico, perhaps more engravers to find available and to be stable for more advanced engraving (contemporary music) in order to switch completely if Finale and Sibelius stay where they are (Finale: my problems on Mac and lack of automatisation; Sibe...

Friends, what do you think about having a forum category for uploading documents (mostly PDF) that are worth to host/share/preserve?
Such as older books on notation, or your own theoretical papers etc.?

Re: The Critical Editing of Music : History, Method, and Practice

I think that the current, contemporary notation is what is distilled for last 400 years, thus our notation today represents the historical development, and the rules today are the most of the rules accumulated for centuries. Therefore perhaps Williams is enough good so far to consider it to be "hist...

Re: Other comments on notation

but Music Engraving S***posting. So, go and participate at your own risk XD Yes, I remember it now I saw it. I would emphasize the word "risk". A lot of absurd and chatter/gossip posting, time consuming. The users post others engraving attempts and make fool of it; some users make with purpose a "b...
