A moody piece not so far from tonality. (I may have posted it before – if so a long time ago. Apologies if so.)
Point is, I used its .xml to try to produce a score with notation software – hell on earth but I chose it as the original daw would force me to learn the notation stuff – like 1-4 instruments on the same track to split onto separate staves; let alone the foibles of note input.
There were messes like this that had to be dealt with (screenshot from Reaper). My student friend who visited on Sunday (allowable in the terms of our lockdown) asked if I was drawing a vineyard.
It hasn’t been a happy experience. I still cannot fathom how any of you composers out there can use it at the composing stage, at least not until you have a very polished draft.
I’ve struggled for a week so I’m still slow but even if I got to thrice the speed it’s still hopelessly slow for sketching – at least 3-4 clicks to get a note on a stave? WHAT?
So, good luck to all those who try!!
Even so, please give it a listen if you have time. It would be sincerely appreciated.
All the best,
