General Discussion / Flow problem
In transcribing a minuet, the Trio consists of two repeated sections. The first part repeats with no problem but the second part goes da capo after only playing once.

General Discussion / Reading staff symbols
I am working on a function looking for accidentals as text in StaffCueSymbols. Sometimes it is only one character, sometimes it is three high ASCII characters. When I used stdErr for debugging, I get a character looking like a lowercase m with something dragging to the right (see picture).  What is that character?  Is it possible to read and interpret the text for a special font?

In the following code saveText is the content of the quoted character(s) without spaces.
Code: [Select · Download]
	switch(saveText) {
case "e":
case "?":
case "∩üÑ":  //Natural
    saveAcc = "n";
break;
case "f":
case "∩üª":  //Flat
    saveAcc = "b";
break;
case "d":
case "∩üñ":  //Sharp
    saveAcc = "#";
break;
case "g":             // Double sharp
case "":
    saveAcc = "x";
break;
case "h":             // Double Flat
case "":
    saveAcc = "v";
break;
default:
    errMsg+= ti + "->" + saveText + "<- " + lines[i] + "\n";
    errMsg += "Couldn't find accidental in " + lines[ti], rc = 1; return lines; // change += to = when live
}

General Discussion / Re: Object for turns
I am starting to collect notes and looking at nwctxt to first find the turn symbol:

Code: [Select · Download]
|Text|Text:"&"|Font:StaffSymbols|Pos:8|Justify:Center|Placement:AtNextNote

However, the text either contained an empty box or three characters with the hex codes of ef 80 a6. The next line (a natural below the turn) contained hex: ef 81 a5 from StaffCueSymbols.  Is this something I need to test for or just change it when it happens?

Once the Text turn symbol is found, it should be straightforward to identify the turned note, the one before, the one after, and any accidentals to implement Rick's 2nd suggestion in post number 7.

TIA

General Discussion / Re: Object for turns
Rick:

My apology for using an example from something other than what I was working on. It had a note being tied into a turn and your example did an excellent job of using and implementing that. However, without that leading tie-in I am getting stumpped as to how to implement this. How can I create an 8th note B natural which will display only and be beamed to the previous G? My test so far is after the red bar line, all else is reference and your example.

TIA

General Discussion / Re: Object for turns
Many thanks! I've printed your example and am studying it. Hopefully I can automate its application in the near future, Eine Kleine has a bunch of them in the 2nd movement.
Again, thank you.

General Discussion / Re: Object for turns
Thank you, I'll be checking out BarLabel and getting a book on Lua.

Some of these may overlap, but I think these things would be needed by any programmer learning a new language.

  • What are the boiler plate items, things that must be in any nwc object?
  • Debugging tools: What can be used to display text and/or variables while working on it?
  • Communicating script failure with nwc and the user.
  • What part of the program receives control when it starts (probably included in 1.)?
  • How to add/modify things to be displayed?
  • How to add/modify what is played?
  • What must be included in the name of the script?

Thank you for looking at it.

General Discussion / Object for turns
I am trying to avoid adding a hidden/played staff to a 4 part piece I'm transcribing. The objects work well for trills and tremolos, but is there something to do turns?  If not, what is a good resource for writing objects in lua?

Attached is a short example.

General Discussion / Re: Feature request: adding chord notes quickly by selecting name of the chord
(I am assuming that a user tool can determine the currently specified duration when it is run.)
You are correct. Anything with a duration will contain Dur: and it is simple to keep it intact when changing a note to a chord. On a note, Pos: will contain accidental, position (offset from center line), and tie--a chord will contain sets of these separated by (a) comma(s).  Just wish it came with tempo, time signature, key, and clef.

This is my attempt as building a chord: guitar.htm.  In the same folder doOctave.js changes a note to an octave chord.

I assume duration means half note, sixteenth note, etc., not that a note might play for 0.125 seconds.

Before adding that line, click Browse to find the file, put "wscript " at the beginning and the prompts at the end.  On mine, "wscript.exe" is in \Windows\System32.

General Discussion / Re: With a little help from my friends...
I put together a JavaScript tool to handle multi bar rests and collapsing staves a few years ago.  After downloading it (remember where it is), install a new tool (you will have to assign it a group and name) and browse to where you parked it. Put "wscript " before the path and, following a space, copy the two prompts from the 4th line of this script to the end of that line.

General Discussion / Re: Using accompaniment with a capella passages.
That works  when the other musician is a real human being.  NWC is going to come in at a specific time and I have to be ready for it.  With a human at the piano it is easy to make eye contact, nod your head, or use the fiddle as a mini baton on the next entrance when both of us are ready. That isn't an option here.
75
General Discussion / Re: Using accompaniment with a capella passages.
Sorry, Warren, but I miss the point.
Isn't obvious when the piano stops playing by looking at its empty staves?
And, in case you have only your part and not the full score, why add another staff just to show the small rests and not putting a simple mark when the piano stops?
The piano is going to come in at a specific time and I need to start the next phrase when that happens.  If I was playing something that ended without accompaniment, that wouldn't be a problem.

General Discussion / Rest Chords from midi files?
Yesterday, to help celebrate our anniversary, I visited Let Me Call You Sweetheart to get a midi file from which to start.  On the Sheet Music tab, RestChords in the right hand piano part are used in the majority of the song but on the midi file these are nowhere to be found--just a quarter note starting most measures that cuts off on the 2nd beat.  I changed the first measure into the second measure in the following with a recorded keystroke macro working with a nwctxt version of the song.

Is there a better way to fix this?

Related to this file, the first time through it is piano, second time forte.  In addition there are crescendos and decrescendos.  Would putting a p just before the open repeat with a f before the close repeat help with hairpins in place?

General Discussion / Re: Hidden MMRs and Spacers
When I worked on this a few years ago, I started with "default spacers" that force NWC to do what it would anyway.  From there the script can add or remove spacers as needed.

 Spacer.htm

Sorry I haven't converted that to a function yet.  Open it at the same time NWC is running.
Click on "How to Use" for instructions.  HTH

General Discussion / Re: Things I Don't Know
Working example: Download and open vivconc2m.html from Scriptorium. Hide everything except for Tempo and Viola.  Instant viola part. Hide the viola and show 2nd violin. Same thing.  All parts have tempo indications and text from the tempo line.  Although each part has measure numbers, I sometimes add them as text at the start of a phrase where a conductor might want to start in a rehearsal.
81
General Discussion / Re: Things I Don't Know
I find the visibility settings a little complicated for the multibar rest feature.  For me it's always a bit of trial and error.
This is my tool for creating and hiding multi-measure rests: wjporter.com/nwc/mmr.js. That tool didn't include installation instructions.  Back up a level (remove /mmr.js) and look at the right hand column.  It creates MMR's with different levels of visibility and can back out MMRs as well.
82
General Discussion / Re: Things I Don't Know
If your tempo track has the tempos and rehearsal symbols (if needed), it can be layered into the part you are printing.  To print parts for the next instrument, hide the one you just did and unhide the next one.  Mike has good advice on how to hide/unhide staves.

Object Plugins / Primer for writing NWC Objects?
I am trying to grasp the trill object and while I understand parts of it, I am a long way for having a handle on it.  Is there a primer or template for creating an object to add, remove, or change what NWC would normally show or print?  Same for what happens during playback?  Is there a library of functions with instructions on how and when to use them?

General Discussion / Re: Swing rhythm
If you put them on top, they can also double as a system-break staff; and for collecting other general information - very helpful and organized e.g. if you need to extract voices. One day I'll explain how to work with it (and write a few small tools that should help even more).
If you use NWC to print parts, the Tempo track is indespensible.  Things that all parts need to see like rehearsal symbols and tempo are all on a staff that is layered into the part you are currently printing.
98
General Discussion / Re: Stacked Rests
I don't know what you mean by "write it into the code" as it is not necessary to do this in NWCTXT.  When you select that pale anchor in front of the quarter rest and hit Cntl/E, you see it is a character of text with the Staff Symbols font.  Click on Char Map... and pick the symbol you need--it is not necessary to know its code.

To hide a rest (or just about anything else on the staff) select it, Cntl/E, then Visibility tab.  This is Rick's example hiding the eighth rest:
Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.751,Single)
|Text|Text:""|Font:StaffSymbols|Pos:4|Justify:Center|Placement:AtNextNote
|Rest|Dur:8th|Opts:VertOffset=-4|Visibility:Never
|Note|Dur:8th|Pos:0
|Chord|Dur:4th|Pos:-1|Opts:Stem=Down|Dur2:4th|Pos2:4
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End
You can hide the text rest the same way, but why?  Text is never necessary for NWC to work so to hide it, take it out.
100
General Discussion / Fast forward and wait
When using NWC for accompaniment, there are a capella passages (like a cadenza) or the other instrument hasn't come in yet such as Ashokan Farewell before the guitar enters.  Someone else would hit the "Resume" key (or soloist with a foot pedal) when the accompaniment returns.

Has anyone else run into this problem?  Any workarounds?

TIA
