How to force a time signature for Snippet fast use

Recommended Posts

Dear Friends,


I'm setting some 12-tone examples for classroom.

I just want to show some rows with motives, in the example below.

I'd like to force this omn expression to make a snippet in 4/4 only or 2/4,

without having to use def score.

Is it possible ?

It's easier for faster classroom purposes.




(setf clodorow '(a4 gs5 c5 d5 bb4 b4 fs5 f5 cs5 g5 ds5 e5))

(setf serierit '(q.. s -s s s s -s e._q -s s -s s_q))

  :length serierit
  :pitch clodorow
  :velocity '(pp sfz p < f pp mf mf mp mp)
	:length-symbols t)

It's genarating a 7/4 snippet. I would prefer it in 2/4 or 4/4...


Any help ?

In the next update you will be able to change the *audition-time-signature*:


(defparameter *audition-time-signature* '(4 4))
(defparameter *audition-time-signature* '(3 4))


The default setup is:

(defparameter *audition-time-signature* nil)

      Is it possible to have a key signature with a snippet?
    • By JulioHerrlein
      Dear All,
      I have a little suggestion for workflow.
      1) A simple context menu button (or some way) to open the XML snippet in other software.
      Like right-clicking on the snippet and have an option (OS based option) like "open with" (musescore, finale, sibelius, etc)
      This could be useful for collecting material for a piece to be edited outside Opusmodus.
      I personally use Musescore with my students. It's free, open and runs windows and mac.
      I also use Finale for myself.
      This simple options could solve the problem of the audition of many different snippets.
      2) Another (much more complex) idea would be  when click over each snippet to have a play panel, similar to the
       live coding panel (with play/stop button, tempo, volume, maybe sound and channel assigment , according
       to the number of staves, etc...
      This could be handy.

      I have a snippet with multiple changing time signatures. When I make a def-score, if I only have that single snippet to play, is there a way to tell OM to "use the time signatures in the snippet" as opposed to typing them all in manually? Thanks.
