I have a pair of tools that may help NWC Tools.
- Resting Staff takes a staff you have copied from another part and turns them into whole measure rests.
- Multi Measure Rests converts a string of whole measure rests into an MMR or backs it out.
The MMR tool also has the options of hiding the rests and boundary collapse.
Those both sounds great!
So now, @RebeccaETripp , we expect a comparative study about the highs and lows of all these apparatuses, with attached ranking lists for all features that are there and that are missing and ...
I promise to be as brutal as possible.
There's at least this tool ("Extend staff below with rests to cursor") I wrote somewhen. Don't know whether it does what you want -
and I didn't do any updates since then
... I have just uploaded a version 0.2 which has been lying around on my computer, which does insert whole rests; however, as far as I can see, it will always count them as 4 beats. And the inserted rests are invisible (the original purpose for this tool is to help you compose, where you want to write snippets "later in the score", beforegoing back to an earlier position) - but you easily mark them and then make them visible, of course; which is also simple for many staves, as NWC keeps the selection when going to the next staff with PgDn.
... and I just found that the tool does the following: If you already have a staff of any time signature filled with full rests, and you invoke the tool, it will produce nice full rests on the staff below; this is actually a bug - but might be helpful in your case.
But the tool could be extended in various ways to make it more versatile ...
Thanks! I'll check it out!
I guess there isn't a tool that can automatically generate whole rest measures up until the last measure?
Noteworthy is probably preferred so much by us all because it's easy to use and very efficient, however I find that I waste a lot of time, when working with large scores, copy and pasting measures and measures of nothing but rests so that the orchestra can catch up to where I am. For example, I'm working with a 24 part orchestra but there is a section where I only have a quartet playing, for say 16 measures, I'm ready to go in and use everyone else now but before I can do that I have to go copy and paste 16 measures of whole rests 20 times! Would anyone mind making me a user tool that would auto fill the empty spaces, can it be done?
Thanks in advance to anyone who answers!
(The image shows what I mean!)
Also, is there a way to connect notes in a staff? For instance, the right and left hand each have notes that are part of one chord? Thanks in advance!
You might try this:
- With the tool: Pitch Mod, move some instruments so that none are within 2 semitones of another
- Add playing style: Tenuto to the begining of each staff
- Set each staff to MIDI channel 10
- Export to MIDI
- Import the file you just saved specifying a Track Size of 2 semitones
- Shift the instrument notes moved in step 1 to their desired place
Well, unfortunately, I have over 30 minutes worth of music to get through + carpel tunnel syndrome, which is why I'm trying not to do this all by hand. I was hoping that maybe there was a way to automate the process a bit more, like some tool that would automatically split each "note" into a different staff. So, for instance, Staff 1 has just the high As (open triangle), Staff 2 has just the low As (cymbal crash), etc, and rests are automatically put into all the blank/leftover spaces
I want it so that there's a different staff for each "note". So, that would end up being one for snares, one for hihats, one for tambourines, one for triangles, etc.
If it's in Noteworthy, maybe the "Parts" user tool will help?
Nah, parts won't work for this. It would ultimately be slower. :/
You've all been really helpful to me in the past, so thanks again in advance!
"See on the first page how rhythms aren't spaced proportionately to their length? While, of course, players read rhythms, rather than spacing, to work out rhythms, it helps immeasurably with sight-reading."
I must admit, it is frustrating when I'm printing the scores and a percussion staff with lots of smaller notes makes it so that only two bars can be printed on one page at a time! Thanks in advance for your time!
Between enharmonic spelling, forcing naturals and changing key, I can accomplish most of what I need to do. Since the global mod will allow me to make a specific selection, I think that will help with the random trickier parts.
To give some background, I rely VERY much on ear and rarely bother with key signatures at all in midi- or if I do, they're not necessarily the most helpful ones for live performers. But, as I said, all of these tools combined should take care of this issue for me.
There's a lot of painstaking work involved with some of my key signatures (or lack thereof, in some cases) and some of my performers are better with flats vs sharps, etc. Thank you once again to anyone who can help me!
I've read a bunch of older threads on this topic, but there is still a gap somewhere in my understanding! I don't know anything about boxmark fonts, for isntance and, although I found a few different plugins that seemed promising, I don't know how to install them/utilize them and can't seem to find any full instructions!
Thank you so much for your time!
I was wondering if someone could recommend a good tool for splitting chords into individual notes (preferably on their own staffs). Thanks again in advance!
Thanks for welcoming me to the community. I REALLY like NWC! I find it incredibly intuitive and I can work in it so quickly- much more so than any of the other midi programs I've tried.
