Multiple def-scores?

Recommended Posts

I think I am correct in saying there can be only one def-score per Composer document? Is that correct?

Thanks

You can have as many DEF-SCORE instances you like, all depends on the structure of your composition. There are no rules or restrictions here.

Ah OK in that case I need help because when I evaluate a Composer document with multiple def-score's in it, it will always evaluate the last one in the document. If I have a def-score higher up, I cannot evaluate that one. 

To evaluate a def-score... it does not involve highlighting the parentheses so how does OM decide which one to evaluate?

Thanks.

Each DEF-SCORE instance is a score. If you have two DEF-SCORE instances then it means you have two scores in one file.

 

Example:

(def-score score1
           (:key-signature 'atonal
            :time-signature '(4 4)
            :tempo 120)

  (ins :omn '(s c5 d5 e5 f5 g5 a5 b5)
       :channel 1
       :sound 'gm
       :program 0))

(def-score score2
           (:key-signature 'atonal
            :time-signature '(4 4)
            :tempo 120)

  (ins :omn '(e c4 d4 e4 f4 g4 a4 b4)
       :channel 1
       :sound 'gm
       :program 0))

;;; Midi Player
;(display-midi 'score1)
;(display-midi 'score2)

;;; Notation
;(display-musicxml 'score1)
;(display-musicxml 'score2)

If I use Menu> Evaluate and Audition and Notation on your code..it will always act on the second score, score2. How do I do that to the first score in your example?

Thanks

So I can have multiple def-scores in a file, but only one of them will be acted upon by "Evaluate and Audition and Notation"..always the last one?
