Quote from: goldenscruff on July 15, 2024, 04:36:12 AMDid you ever think about including a bar of 7/8 either in m7 or m14 or m18, as especially m19-26 is hard to play "half a beat early".

I hadn't, but changing singular bars from 4/4 to 7/8 doesn't account for the offset between the melody and the bassline, all it does it shift the problem down to the left hand. In my opinion, the up-down ostinato does a fine job of establishing where the beat is, and that there's no need to overthink it once there's only one hand playing (should they even decide to perform the glitched version over the restoration).

Not usually the type to bump my own stuff for arrangers, but I don't think there was much left to go over with this sheet, except for the new intros that I already added. I didn't expect this being as big a replacement as it was (nobody's fault, of course!) and was hoping to just rip the Band-Aid off with this one.

Quote from: Kricketune54 on July 09, 2024, 08:19:43 PMTo me it sounds like the trill continues through the end of the measure. You could add a decres., which might make sense given how quiet part that is the current RH is anyway (maybe decresc. but go back to mf at m9 for the RH)
I'm only playing the trill for 1.66 beats, but it is cleaner as a minum.

Quote from: Kricketune54 on July 09, 2024, 08:19:43 PM• m19 RH beat 2.66 hearing Bb not Ab
Someone didn't read their midi dump properly.
Quote from: Kricketune54 on July 09, 2024, 08:19:43 PM• m20 beat 3-4 I don't hear those lower octave Ab's.
Someone got suggestion biased by their midi dump. (This mistake is the one I'm worrying about more, with midi dumps)

Quote from: Kricketune54 on July 09, 2024, 08:19:43 PMSlowing this part down I do hear that pitch in question go F-G-F like a trill still
I can't hear the trill, but even if there was one there, the mordents on the crochets are already barely playable, I'm not sure how playable the trill would be at double speed.
The trill you hear is separate from the strings descending chromatically? (like in m9)

Add the more bits except the flipped ties.

Quote from: Latios212 on July 14, 2024, 01:28:45 PMI think I just have one last suggestion to make about measure 2. It may be accurate, but there's a lot of awkward overlap between the two hands and it's not super clear to the performer what to do - you could omit the parenthesized notes but the overlapping G and Ab notes on beat 2.5-2.75 are really awkward.
I agree, that makes a lot of sense. The solution I decided on was similar to yours, except I kept the C-Db-C in the RH. I also moved the Ab in measure 1 to the LH for better fingering.
Thank you so much for all of your help and feedback! :)

Help Guides / Creating fanfare collections o...
Last post by Latios212 - July 14, 2024, 03:06:29 PM
Ever wondered how to create a fanfare collection or notate structure for tracks with things like weird loops, jumps, or alternate sections? This guide will help you set up those visual pieces in Finale to achieve an end result that looks something like one of these sheets. (Note that this doesn't talk about engraving best practices; please refer to the Formatting Guidelines under Different Arrangement Types > Collections of two or more tracks for what your sheet should look like.)

You cannot view this attachment.

First, start by writing out the parts you want on staves normally:

For any places where you want to insert a break in the system, highlight the measures in the latter part of the system and choose Plug-ins > Measures > Create Coda System... From here, leave the default spacing (you can adjust this later) but don't create any symbols.

Now you have the system break you need:

From here, edit the measure attributes of the last measure of each fanfare to prevent any courtesy key/time signatures from appearing, and use a solid barline:

For the first measure of each fanfare, ensure the time and key signatures do show:

Make sure measure numbers reset (and do not show) at the beginning of each fanfare by creating different measure number regions for each:

That should be about it! This is a fanfare collection used as an example but you can do similar things for tracks with alternate intros, odd jumps between sections, and such. If there are any further questions, feel free to ask :)

Quote from: Radiak488417 on June 03, 2024, 08:45:06 PMSubmitting some fixes for a very beloved sheet, World 3 from SMG2:

-Composer should be Mahito Yokota
-Tempo should be 110
-m8 RH beat 2: F# should be an Fn
-m8 RH beat 4: missing an A
-m10 RH beat 4: missing an E
-m10 RH beat 4.5: C# should be a Cn
-m11 RH beat 4: missing an E
-m12 RH beat 1: missing a C#
-m13 RH beat 4: I don't think the C# is restruck here
-m16 LH beat 1: missing a Gn, and I don't hear the E. I also think the top three notes would make more sense as a rolled chord in the RH.
-m17 could use a ritardando

The song doesn't actually repeat back to m4, it should repeat back to m5 and there should be an extra measure at the end that looks something like this:

Thanks! I agree with all the above and have made the corresponding changes. I adjusted a few more things that needed some polish as well, including adjusting the positioning of some dynamics, spacing in the last system, hiding a couple of unneeded rests in m. 10, and adding the "s" in "https" in the URL.

(Other things above we will take a look at sometime too, sorry for the wait!)
