I'm relatively new to Noteworthy so I'm not familiar with NWCTXT , so how do I do that?
There may be a batch utility which I don't know, but generally, File.. Save As and change the File Type to NWC Text File. Then edit the resulting file with a text editor.
How easy is it for LP to preserve the accidental state across those hidden barlines? The issue doesn't arise in Unsure until m17, so I can't tell from the pdf. I can see that the accidental problem will be different from NWC's since all accidentals are specified.
There's no need to: Lily can move the timing translator from the Score to each individual stave, so each keeps its own time and there is nothing hidden in the output.
Only difficulty was getting lined up bars to break the lines: LilyPond won't break in the middle of a bar, so there are some dummy bar lines. I definitely _won't_ break in the middle of a note!
NWC can handle reasonable polymeters, but this goes way beyond reasonable. I doubt that any notation software can make sense of it.
Without seeing what the OP is actually trying to do it's hard to be usre, but LilyPond can handle some quite bizarre polymeter/polyrhythm effects, with a little effort.
I really like NWC and try to use it for all my scoring needs, but it is increasingly tempting to fire up MuseScore when I have a score whose slurs or beams aren't going to look right without a lot of extra work.Have you tried LilyPond and my Noteworthy converter? I never have to resort to Noteworthy tricks to get decent slurs: they're either good enough already, or the beziers of the slur can be adjusted in extreme need.
We don't have to agree on paper versus electronic filing, the issue is retrieving the code when you need it.
I'm sure Noteworthy has our registration data on file so if we remember what name we registered with, it should be possible for Noteworthy to send the data a second time if we need it.
When I requested that, this was the response:
We do not resend the Authenticity ID.
NoteWorthy Software, Inc.
I don't. It's always a good idea to keep any difficult-to-recover data that you might need again, such as software registration codes, in an easily findable place. That seems self-evident to me. If I lose a registration code, I blame myself, not the software manufacturer.
I would agree with this if it were email or something I can search for. Paper I don't need and the thought of keeping a bit of paper for every single application I've ever installed is not something that makes any sort of sense. We run the application on a computer, so that's the right place to store the registration details.
Do you use the NWC - PDF995 combination?
I do, and it prints A4 without any changes needed. Have you set a4 as the Page Size in pdfedit995?
Yes, I've had LilyPond on my PC for many years, but unless they have made major changes in the past 6 months, or so, data entry is done with a text editor into an ASCII file which is then processed by LilyPond.
There have been a _lot_ of changes to LilyPond over the last few years, but not to the entry mechanism. If your main requirement is great looking tablature, I'd suggest 2 options: 1) take a breath and learn LilyPond. It's really not that hard - follow the tutorial. The documentation is excellent, and the online forums are very active. 2) If you can't face entering the notes by hand, my Noteworthy->LilyPond converter can simplify this - however, you would then need to edit the LilyPond source to replace the staff types with TabStaffs. I don't think I can post a link to it, because I lost a piece of paper (my V2 purchase receipt) from 5 years ago and so appear unable to upgrade my forum membership (surely there ust be a better way??). So - Google for "Converting Noteworthy songs to LilyPond in Windows" and you should go straight to my page.
Phil, as good as Timidity++ may be, it isn't among the 15 GM soundfont collections offered at SolMiRe, so - given the purpose of this thread, which is to offer an easy approach to MIDI conversion to those who don't want to download and set up a softsynth - it seems irrelevant to mention it here.
Well - the title of the thread is "MIDI to MP3 conversion". Solmire was announced as a way of performing that function, and I was suggesting an alternative. Seems wholly relevant.
I tried 'open' also, and it gave me nothing also. I will try doing the conversion in a different browser.
Just type *.* in the space where it's asking for a file name, then hit return. You'll get a list of _all_ the files in that directory/folder.
This is the only way to change a chord member (purpose built scripts excepting).
Depending on the key signature, Tools, Audit, Audit Enharmonic spelling might also have automatically converted a A# to a Bb.
One dot overlaps with other dot on pos 1.
I think the overlapped dot should be on pos 3.
Gould, the music typesetting guru, says that the lowest dots should be moved down to accommodate the top dot in its correct position.
I disagree. The only reason a single staff should be bracketed is if it expands to, or contracts from, multiple staves.
No. Choral writing always has the chorus part bracketed, to distinguish from soloists. It's quite possible for there to be a single choral stave (e.g. "men") with a number of soloists above. The single choral stave should have a bracket.
I think the way of getting a final staff bracketed is a bit hacky - I think it should be possible without workarounds like this.
Or am I missing something?
Link as above.
I think the work required to get Noteworthy any where near the visual output quality of Sib would make it impossible. I have to use Sib for college, but am much happier with Noteworthy for note input and Lilypond for printed output.
DISCLAIMER: I don't give a hang about playback, I'm only interested in good quality printed scores.
If that's your real focus, have a look at Lilypond.
Try putting in the proper address. [deleted] or try clicking the link.
I was using the correct URL but couldn't post it because of the restriction on posting links (which means I've also had to delete your link..). Trying to access the site, either via your link, or my favorites, now works OK.
