Snippets got an upgrade!

Recommended Posts

Wow this really is a huge deal for me. We can now have snippets as mini scores before we compile. Key sigs, time sigs, tempo and instrument defs all in a snippet. And multiple voices too. Thanks Janusz.

 

5 hours later. So this is a major change it seems to me and very useful. The whole workflow has had a boost. This, amongst other things, allows the creation of snippet libraries with granular control over the visual and functional aspects of the snippets. An ideas library is here. Of course it was possible before with mutiple .opmo files and def scores but this is much more useful (and convenient). I can have one .opmo file with a hundred snippets in it, all with different instruments and with correct notation and functionality and individual tempi.

 

As a recent arrival to OpM I do remember my first reaction was ...Preference>Audition>...and then set a static set of preferences for playback?....this just felt limiting to be honest. Then I quickly realised that this was just a temporary thing and def-score was the way to define playback..and still is. But the Preference>Audition set up can effectively be ignored if one wishes now and Snippets are free! Good stuff.

      Hi,
         I have OpusModus 1.2.23428 and am considering the upgrade to 1.3. It asks for a license key, but I can find it in the application itself (Help, About, Register, etc) or in other common places, such as $HOME/Library/Application Support, etc. What's the best way for me to get my license?
       
      Thanks!

      Hot diggity dawg-- found the license email from 2015! It's safely stored away now 🙂
      In case I didn't, is there a recovery process?

      Dear Friends,
       
      When evaluating this (cmd+1)
      '(h (g3f4b4db5) (c4 maj7))  
      as snippet, I get this:
       

      Why is that c4 alone there in the beginning of snippet ?
      Best,
      Julio

      I was wondering what was the preferred method to store snippets? I come across quick ideas I want to quickly store away for future.
       
      There seems to be two choices..make a .opmo file or 'save the last file as .xml' under the File menu. Are there any others? I guess an xml file is good for seeing the notation rapidly but effectively renders the snippet dead as it loses the reference to the code and an .opmo file keeps the code... though this needs to be evaluated to see the notation quickly.
