Re: a very basic stemming bug with two voices

Actually, there is a third reason not to use open score, which is that the samples get doubled in a2 passages, with the horribly familiar destructive-interference effect. But Notion has "tacet", which could be used in a2 passages in open score, if it doesn't affect printing. (It shouldn't ...

Re: a very basic stemming bug with two voices

Thanks very much for taking the time to play around with this; particularly for capturing the screenshots, which make it much easier to talk about what is going on. Your first suggestion is to run away from the problem by using open score. There are two reasons to use open score and two reasons not ...

Re: 4th movement of Symphony #4

Glad you like it! The new (Notion) renderings of the other movements are in preparation; I'm going to try to post them yet this month. You would have to ask the single most awkward possible question about this particular piece, wouldn't you? I began work on it in 1974. Of course over the intervening...

Re: Extension Woodwind bundle

Okay, y'all forced me to do the math. A semitone at that pitch requires a tube extension of about six inches (neglecting the end correction). A toilet paper roll isn't long enough. Bang (or, as who should say, flush) goes that myth. The Nielsen anecdote stands, but we still have no explanation for t...

Re: Extension Woodwind bundle

I'll put y'all'n out of your misery here. In the first place, we're not talking about paper towels. The relevant Wikipedia article is this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toilet_paper . First roll dispenser: 1883. First performance of the Ring, including bassoon low A's: 1876(*). In any case, toil...

Re: Woodwind trills

Most likely, all of this has to do with how the sample is looped (defined with the loop attributes in the XML). What we don't know is when that metadata is loaded and where or how durably it is cached; that, in turn, would determine how easy or safe it would be to make the parms adjustable on the fl...

Re: Extension Woodwind bundle

At least we now know why the problem appeared to be an intermittent one. It turned out to be context-dependent in more than one way. For fun, here is Norman Del Mar, The Anatomy of the Orchestra (1981), page 164: Where...the low bassoon A is required but is not followed by the Bb it is common practi...

Re: Extension Woodwind bundle

The problem sampleset (one of sixteen in the file) is for the vibrato technique, which is apparently the default. So another very possible workaround is to add the "non-vib." technique text -- which can of course also be hidden. This does not require the dynamics to be fudged and the techn...
