Sounds good to me. If line type included broken lines (as Lawrie suggests) it would also allow us to draw 8va brackets - something I've wanted for a long time.
But what would we use as measurements?
This would also be quite useful for indicating glissandi, and I don't think it would be too hard to implement.
For this new object to be useful, and overall width would be needed
I'd rather see the time spent fixing slur defaults.
Don't see any need for a MIDI event to be associated to it at all... Nor any kind of durational reality. E.G. Note stems and bar lines don't have duration.
You can't just take a glyph an stretch it. NWC2 would need to figure how many "~~~~"'s were needed to cover the diagonal and rotate it. doable, but non-trivial.
What about just a straight line, or a non-straight line
What I hear Lawrie suggesting is specifiying anchor points and asking the program to dynamically draw the line. The anchor points would be the objects, not the line. Am I missing something?
gliss example - while I personally use the wavy style, I've seen 'em with straight lines too
Take Special Ending as an example. It is one measure long.
To make a multi-measure rest, the width is in measures. It must not cross a SysBreak without renumbering.
An 8va · · · · ¬ must cross a SysBreak and extend for a duration or note range.
I'd rather have one object and tell it what this duration or # of notes is. Less clutter and no nesting problems
Nesting these would be a nightmare.
Also, can a piano do a glissando, or is that simulated with an arpeggiated chord or chromatic run?
Glissando [F. Glisser, to slide]. The execution of rapid scales by a sliding movement. In piano-playing, the nail of the thumb or that of the third finger is drawn rapidly over the white keys. ...
(Spanish m., Italian m., literally 'carrying') very legato, carrying a vocal or instrumental line without gapson stringed instruments, an expressive device, a slide from one pitch to another, usually stopping for moment either above or below the destination pitch, which was very popular in the 19th- and early 20th-centuries, but has more recently fallen into disuse when Chopin wanted the kind of rubato that is a gentle lingering over a few of the notes, he indicated this by writing dots over each of the notes under a slur. This kind of notation for the piano is called portamento a term is sometimes applied to the mezzo-staccato touch employed on the piano synonymous with appoggiatura
also glissato glissicando or glissicato, a continuous slide in pitch.On the violin, the left hand finger is placed on the string and then, as the note is played, the finger slides up or down the finger board. The beginning and end note of the glissando are written and connected by either a straight or a wavy line. Usually the word gliss. or glissando will be written above on the piano, to run the nail or a finger or the back of the thumb along the keyboard over many notes, see glissant, glisser on the timpani, using taps or pedals, the pitch of the note is changed while it sounds
GLISSANDO: sliding up and down on the scale, i.e., making a quick uninterrupted passage up or down the scale, e.g., on the piano, harp, xylophone, trombone. The effect of portamento on stringed instruments is not comparable, since it implies only the smooth linking of two notes, not the deliberate sounding of the notes in between.PORTAMENTO: the "carrying" of a sound - e.g., on a voice or a stringed instrument, the transition from one note to another higher or lower without any break in the sound.
