Re: Upcoming changes

This is all true as far as it goes. But I do think--as I wrote earlier in this debate--that the uproar is not really because of the specific measure taken. It is after all truly minor in its effects on users. I am convinced that this "pay or wait 15 seconds" approach to fund raising has tr...

Re: A question about queues for transposing instruments

Thanks for your quick response! Luckily this is the easy way with the software I am using.

BTW: I have been spelling cue 200 times so I won't forget.

A question about queues for transposing instruments

I stumbled over this question when putting together an orchestral score and parts. Many instruments have long rests and queues are essential. Normally this is not hard to do. But how about transposing instruments? Do you give the queues 1) in concert pitch or 2) in the transposition of every particu...

Re: Fanny Mendelssohn

In the case of Fanny I think it is appropriate to list her under her married name. Her husband was the only man in her life who encouraged her to publish her works. Both her father and her brother resisted the idea of a woman (their daughter / sister nota bene!) making a living as a composer with a ...

Re: File extension for compressed XML files

I am sorry I have to ask for details that everybody probably knows: What is the extension of a zip archive that IMSLP will accept? And what is the difference between a compressed file--which my screenwriter produces directly--and a zip archive?

File extension for compressed XML files

This is actually two questions: :?: :?: 1. I tried to upload a typeset score along with its source file in compressed XML format. The Pdf was accepted, the source file was not. I suppose it was because of the extension that my score writer gave it (mxl). So what is the accepted extension, please? 2....

Emilie Mayer String Quartet e-minor: Upload of improved parts. Shouldn't the old versions be deleted to save storage?

I just uploaded a newly formatted set of parts for my typeset of this quartet. These parts don't have any impossible page turns the way the previous set had (by making the scale 10% lower and the margins smaller). In addition they have much smaller file sizes with equal print quality. It seems waste...

Re: Upcoming changes

Characterizing Carl Simpson's recent post to this thread as "arrogant and defensive" seems both inaccurate and unnecessary. I found his short presentation of the site's history to be both interesting and helpful; his outline seems entirely consistent with his long and admirable record of ...

Re: Was passiert mit IMSLP?

Ich finde es sehr interessant nach dem langen englischen "thread" über dieses Thema nun auch die deutschen Meinungen zu lesen. Da fallen ein paar Sachen auf: Es gibt zwei Leute hier, die sich beklagen, dass ihnen nicht persönlich gedankt wird. Soviel Sensibilität scheinen die Angelsachsen ...

Re: Upcoming changes

A few points to Carolus's response to this controversy. But first I say again, that the 15 seconds per se are no big deal to me; the fact that so many people feel blindsided by the announcement is a very big deal however and I am not sure Carolus understands the implications of this. I am dismayed b...

Re: Upcoming changes

Having followed this thread for some time now I think there are some lessons to learn from it. For us contributors and users and for the "management". Specially referring to the long and detailed post by lxh5032 I would come to the following summary: 1. Consider what would have happened if...

Re: Guidelines for submitting digital scores (MusicXML, MEI) and notation program formats?

Thanks, I'll try one example and if successful I will by and by add the source files everywhere I can.

Re: Guidelines for submitting digital scores (MusicXML, MEI) and notation program formats?

This raises another question: I still have the source files for my typesets. Do you want me to upload them? They are musescore files and some elements keep walking around and need to be repositioned every time the file is opened; I was glad I could nail everything down by converting to Pdf (the prob...

Re: Typeset Parts!!!!

Hurrah! I posted the question of file size on the forum of musescore.org. Turns out the problem occurs only with Mac OS, Windows and Linux do fine. They are aware of the problem and think they have a solution, but it won't be forthcoming soon. In the mean time however a genius over at Musescore name...

Re: Typeset Parts!!!!

BTW any criticism of my typesets is welcome. Especially if you find errors that spoil the music or make performance hard.

It'll help me avoid the same errors in the future. And if serious enough I'll correct the errors.
