Re: Partial measures: bar numbering and volta repeats

I agree with OCTO: if you want to avoid a repeat mark at the beginning of Var. VIII without risk of confusion, put a final bar line at the end of the previous variation. Yes, or put more distance from the previous system, so that it looks as a separate "movement". Indeed I am bit confused as it is ...

Re: Partial measures: bar numbering and volta repeats

Edit: off-topic question: Do I need a start repeat bar 𝄆 at the beginning of var. VIII? Yes, I believe. The repeat symbol is of the ending or final bar line-style (thin+bold line) and it affects the form. The back-repeat bar line looks for another final bar line or forward-repeat barline. If none i...

Re: Partial measures: accidentals

It can happen that one will start rehearsing after the double bar line: therefore you need to repeat the accidental.
In the voice 2, RH, measure 44, I would like to see the B-flat courtesy as well.

The same with a long measure that is broken: yes, repeat the accidental.

Re: Violin Family - String Numbering

the only reason I would care to write out the string numbers isn't because I think I know better than a professional string-player, no, it's simply to save a few seconds in a quick-paced recording session. Is that even worth the hassle? Yes, Yinyue, I understand that. But actually, this is counterp...

Re: Violin Family - String Numbering

I think the OP meant to write in string numbers (III, II - eg. sul D, sul G) rather than fingerings, but it seems not idiomatic all the same. I see. Indeed! As you say, the roman numbers or "sul..." is the way it should be notated. The strings should be notated only in the case there are multiple c...

Re: Violin Family - String Numbering

This is possible (pitches), but please if you are not string musician do not write fingerings. The fingering you propose is not impossible but is "wrong" since nobody would play so, and it would result in a very bad sound.

This is played by 1-4-0 and it is not needed to be notated.

Re: How to effectively print/ship scores and to be competitive as a publisher?

My sample copy has just arrived. It's a really nice job. I'm a bit worried about the staple tearing through the block with use. (68pp) The printing is nice and black and the off-white text paper is lovely. I'll be interested to see what the binding is like for my conductor scores, between 100 - 200...

Re: "Urtext Kapellmeister"

It's possible to have fonts fully compatible in Finale MacOS and Windows - if they are simple fonts that only use 255 characters or if they are unicode-only fonts (not using the first 255 symbol slots). I remember opening Maestro for Win and for Mac in FontForge and the symbols were not placed equa...

Re: How to effectively print/ship scores and to be competitive as a publisher?

Is there any news? I approved the proofs for printing on 5th December, and they are dispatching the copies today. (Finished them on Friday, but missed the post.) Assuming they don't work weekends, that's still 6 days: 10 copies per day. :lol: I see. Maybe because you are a new customer. they do my ...
