Music Type Foundry - new fonts!

Post by OCTO » 12 Jul 2016, 06:14

This can be both under Links and Type - subforum. But I believe many are looking for fonts here, so:

I welcome it back!!
Abraham Lee has created a great number of fantastic looking fonts, first for LilyPond for free and now commercially available.
The fonts are provided with very good examples. Great job, tisimst!
A question: are there provided Finale and Sibelius versions (click-and-work)?

Thanks, OCTO! I haven't officially announced the site (yet), but hope to very soon when I have files working for BOTH Finale and Sibelius in as close to plug-and-play as I am able. They are in the works and I'm very close to being done.

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 variant that is mapped like Maestro and another that is mapped for SMuFL, so Finale users won't need to do anything special.

This is fabulous news!

Are these new fonts "optically scaled" like Emmentaler?

I do not have the optically scaled variants in this particular release. However, I fully intend to have them in each font's next major release! No time-frame at the moment I can give you, though, for when that will happen. I'm hoping to begin distributing those starting in Q4 2016, but we shall see.

Just thought I'd mention that, as of today, seven of my fonts are now compatible with Finale 2014 (or newer):
- MTF-Arnold
- MTF-Beethoven
- MTF-Cadence
- MTF-Gutenberg1939
- MTF-Haydn
- MTF-Ross
- MTF-Scorlatti

I also think I should mention that MTF-Cadence has already been released for Dorico (via the SMuFL standard).

Happy Q4 2016!!
