This NoteWorthy music requires two midi ports (devices),
Wow, Rich, you really want a big orchestra!

A couple of hints:
- In staff #9 you have a missing octave accidental.
- Why listening to such a big orchestra in mono, were it not for the percussions? Panning the instruments really opens the soundscape up wonderfully.

User Tools / Re: Test Release: nwc2musicxml
Sorry, Bart, but I disagree.
If you pass through MIDI you lose too many typographic details.
It is much better to seek the internet for some well done Musescore parts and export them in musicxml.

General Discussion / Re: Selectors
Thank you very much, Lawrie.
I was hoping for something more "structured", but your link is a good start.

I completely forgot the right click on the selectors.
No to say about the <alt><x> in "customize toolbars".

How many badly (un)documented tricks in NWC, buried inside old threads in the forum!

General Discussion / Re: any tricks for tied note decrecendo or crescendo?
Yes, Graham, you're right.
Indeed I regularily use the "expression" controller to leave the "volume" for an easy mixing control.
But, alas, as you can see NWC operates more easily on volume.
N.B. Using MPC you have to select how often and whith which step to send MPC messages on MIDI and this is a bit annoying.

General Discussion / Re: Custom Templates in NWC 1.75
NWC 1.75 by default saved the templates in "C:\Programs\NoteWorthy Composer\Template"
If changed at least once from the default the path is stored in "C:\Programs\NoteWorthy Composer\NWC.INI", as Lawrie wrote, under
[Folders]
Templates=C:\Programs\NoteWorthy Composer\Template
Take note that in the more recent releases of Windows the directories under C:\Programs are protected and need special autorizations to be modified.

General Discussion / Re: Articulation volume adjustment: accents, etc.
My Yamaha keyboard allows me to choose the touch (velocity) response I prefer for each voice.
But also: my Yamaha keyboard has a dynamic curve completely different from many other keyboards, not to say virtual synths.
In a nutshell: there is no standard for the dynamics!

Regarding NWC: since the development has suddenly stopped years ago with a beta version, at this point I believe we must do with what we have, as long as Microsoft allows it   :'( , then... bye bye.
I'm thinking to evaluate MuseScore. Someone has tried it?

General Discussion / Re: Creating a .bat file to convert all files of a folder to NWCTXT.
Opagust, are you saying that nwc-conv still works even with the newest (so-to-say  :) ) version of NWC?
It can be possible, since
Quote
nwc-conv just acts as a front end to the nwc2 program.
I can't find nwc-conv.exe anymore in my archives. Could you send me a copy of it?

Edit: Found! It was inside nwc2_UserToolStarter, not in a NWC package.
38
General Discussion / Re: Creating a .bat file to convert all files of a folder to NWCTXT.
Quote
The nwc-conv.exe command line tool is no longer included with the program. The program now handles this task on its own.

-convert: This option can be used to convert a file from one format to another.
Usage: nwc2.exe -convert "[input-file]" "[output-file]"

Both files are required on the command line and the file extension determines the conversion.
Supported conversions include:
.nwc    -> .nwctxt, .mid, or .info
.nwctxt -> .nwc, .mid, or .info

Conversions to .mid support a "-0" option for type 0 files.
Quote
You can invoke the NWC Lua interpreter by adding a -nwcut switch on the command line:

nwc2 -nwcut [YOURTOOL] < nwcfile.nwctxt > outfile.txt 2> errfile.txt

You must provide the redirects, as the program instance will not automatically attach to your current console session.

Object Plugins / Re: ChordPlay.nw
I'm trying to convert myself to use this plugin for convenience.
I inserted some chords, but I discovered that the chord names are by far too small.
I fought with the plugin until I discovered that I have to select it, click it with the right mouse button to access a submenu that can let me choose what to do, then, maybe, actually doing it... Bah!
To quote Rich: it is a leap backward.

Anyway, I went to modify the text size and I discovered it already is (so it says) 32 points! N.B. my staff is 18 points!
Looking at the source code I see:
Code: [Select · Download]
{id='Size',label='Font Size',type='float',default=nil,min=0.1,max=50,step=0.1},
Max 50? False. (Luckily) I can even use 100 or more... just to reach the same size of a 18 point text.
There's something wrong with the metric...

I think I should try to adjust it to my needs.

General Discussion / Re: Text under music
(J'espère que mon français est adéquat; je compte sur Google pour traduire de l'anglais.)
A-ha! This explains many things...

donnez au personnel une grande limite inférieure.
"personnel" = "staff": people employed by a particular organization...  :)

Beware of Google Translator!
Not so long ago, an Italian cook in Austria was found drunk while driving.
He doesn't speak German nor English so he used Google Translator to translate: "sure, I pay!"
The problem was that in German the translation was something like: "I'll pay you" :)
He was accused of bribery and went on trial...

For those who were wondering, I used the wrong word for the writing.
In French, the word "Police" corresponds to "font" in English.
Indeed: "police d'écriture". Sorry for being ignorant.

General Discussion / Re: Arpeggio settings in NWC2.75a
Well, my answer is: yes.
And I'm available as beta tester.

I don't see such a big problem to change that little bit in the user tool.
Of course, there can always be everywhere a bug that messes things up, but it's a risk that most of us can afford.
As I wrote: "at most, you force a user to change his habits or, worst of the worst, do not use it."

And: yes, the undo works with the user tools too.  :)
When it doesn't work, you are asked to save the score before proceeding,
49
General Discussion / Re: Arpeggio settings in NWC2.75a
Mike, there is something I'm missing.

You're talking about a user tool, even if embedded in a plugin.
A user tool is only applied once while editing and leaves no traces of itself in the score. I mean: what you do with a user tool can also be done by hand; you can never say for sure it was done with a user tool.
A plugin instead is quite different: it stays in the score and it's executed/evaluated every time.

If you change a user tool, this will never affect the old scores.
At most, you force a user to change his habits or, worst of the worst, do not use it..

What I got wrong?
