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)

Lets be careful, as a point of clarification, that "fair-use" refers to works under current copyright, whereas "public domain" refers to works which are unrestricted in their copyright access.

Re: How Much Would You Charge?

Do you think the reason your "band friend" is so shocked by the sticker price is because she is ill-informed? Have you thought about education and illumination for the customer, to show them the difference between your product and a "mostly-free job"? Could be, but more likely she actually knows pe...

Re: [Lilypond] Numerous Questions & Thoughts

Perhaps the ultimate notational tool would be one that would allow seamless to access both styles of interface, so that one could tailor it to one's own working style. Isn't that what Frescobaldi and Denemo offer? Enter code as you wish and then adjust in a GUI environment? I'd like to look at Lily...

Re: How Much Would You Charge?

I don't know how much I would charge, but I know how much I was charged. Example, 5$ to 30€ per page (orchestral music, medium complex). That seems inline with what I've noticed on the internet. I haven't seen much adjustment for inflation, probably because services are rendered so few times now da...

This is a very elegant solution, indeed. I might go back and change it to this. Thanks!
