When I was a student in NYC, I spent several weeks engraving on one of those for a small choral music publisher. They were happy to give me one-on-one instruction, since so few people knew how to use one. Coordinating music and text was harrowing. I eventually quit to have more time for piano practice.

That's easy to see from some of the sample pages available.

I do like some aspects of the 'font' produced by Model 10, though. It could be a nice starting point for a semi-handwritten music font.

I've definitely seen the "publisher model" used by a bunch of smaller Canadian publishers in the 1980s, and one of the most popular hymnals is also typeset with one.

How do you enter slurs on that machine?

I think that the slurs were probably pressed on with Notaset for short and medium and drawn with instruments for the longer and more complex ones. But I never got to that far...
