Re: How to Write for PERCUSSION by Samuel Z. Solomon

One thing I'd like to warn, considering I have a relative who is a professional (concert) percussionist, that these sorts of engraving issues are still on this side of convention and passe. Because of the uniqueness and relative age of percussion notation, even though there is a general consensus in...

Re: Music Type Foundry - new fonts!

Great to hear, tisimst! I would be more than happy to use many of them! If I might as you, will they be mapped for Finale as the Maestro table? Or it will be SMULF so that a plug-in "translates" symbols from to another? If you need any help, I am, we are here! Excellent! I will be creating a varian...

Re: Exotic grace notes in Boulez

I love how LilyPond handles it. I think I know what tisimst had to do, and it was relatively straight forward.

I have one question for tisimst, in the source, did the "grace" notes remain "grace notes" in the code, or are they modified with magstep or scale?

Re: Music Type Foundry - new fonts!

This is fabulous news!

Are these new fonts "optically scaled" like Emmentaler?

Re: OTF in Finale, and problems

... reason for the SMuFL. Lots of people bash it, ... I never heard this, at least in the Smufl-discussion list. What is the criticism? And what the alternative? Finale and Sibelius hardcore users bash SMuFL because of it's "Re-inventing the wheel." I've read on the finale forums (the official ones...

Re: OTF in Finale, and problems

I think this is a fabulous reason for the SMuFL. Lots of people bash it, but it would be awfully nice to have some agreement on the font glyph locations and areas.

Re: LilyPond/Denemo or Sibelius?

John Rethorst (well, we have now two Johns, and both are John R.), I am seriously thinking to switch to MuseScore - maybe you should check this one. It seems they are developing it very actively. You could perhaps also contribute if you want, and if they want. As a very long-time Finale user (and v...

Re: LilyPond/Denemo or Sibelius?

I'm considering switching to another notation program and it seems it would be one of these two. I've walked through LilyPond/Denemo and the Sibelius demo and they look okay, but I dread taking the at least three weeks to really learn each one. If I went with LilyPond I'd have to use it through Den...

Re: Visual Music Font Comparison

I believe your Emmentaler font is not updated to the most current iteration. It seems to be an iteration before 2.16/18 where they updated and tweaked many things in the font scheme (most notable, the change in the G clef)
