Mmm so this relates back to my earlier question about libraries and storing ideas and multiple def-scores in a single document.

 

To store an "idea" which can be viewed with a key signature in notation I have to save it as a def-score, but each composer document (.opmo) can effectively only have one idea in it, because each .opmo file uses only one def-score, as previously discussed. (I know it can have the code of an infinite number of def-scores, however only the last def-score will 'Evaluate and Audition and Notation" i.e it's not possible to highlight a def-score in a composer document as discovered in my last post)

 

I'm confused to be honest..the whole structural thinking in Opusmodus is confusing me!

def-score is a score which is a finished work.

For ideas I suggest to create a new file with your expressions.

If you like to call some of your ideas algorithmically then you need to create a def-library.

You don't need to care about a time signature or key signature, all that you do on a score level and not on a snippet level.

      I just realized that would be great to have snippet audition and notation (Command+1) with the notation opening in separate window, like we have Evaluate and Audition and Notation - Window and in PS.
       
      Maybe not very difficult to implement, but great to have, to show to sutudents the gradual process of the compositional process, etc.

      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.
       
      Best,
      Julio

      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.
