I am currently liking version A and D... sample.jpeg Hope you are all well :) Cheerio, Hector Pascal. BTW, for ...

Carl Fischer uses Maestro Wide for almost all its scores now, despite them being in Sibelius, with Times or Minion Pro.
So basically they ported Maestro to Sibelius?

Re: cues in divisi parts

Hi everyone, This is my first post here, though I have enjoyed reading for quite some while. John's reference to A. Arnstein inspired me to research the name, and in doing so I found this interesting newspaper article. I am sure that you have all seen it, nevertheless I found it to be an inspiring ...

Re: Beethoven's Tenth

Yet another attempt to "prove" that AI is capable of making art. The AI has become a fancy and respectable word today. The only one thing AI doesn't do, that artists do, is making "mistakes" of unknown origin, which adds the true beauty in artist's works and pushes the boundaries of the art. Well, A...
