Song lyrics frequently use many different notes for the same syllabic chunk. Synful Orchestra is some kind of 'procedural' orchestra and not just a set of samples. Probably misterdls is using a version of MuseScore that breaks between notes by default. Hovering over each individual ornament will reveal it's name if you cannot find it. We take great pains to place the start and end points well, following Gould quite closely. And the first one should last until the very begining of the second. Some publishers do this, but many do not.
Remove the slurs from your example and it wouldn't make a bit of difference in how this would be sung. Dotted slurs are also used to indicate an editor's suggestion as opposed to the composers original markings. That way C will sounds like B, as it should, and D will sound like B, as it should. Physically speaking, the envelope of the piano sound starts with a sharp 'attack' immediately followed by a rapid 'decay' and, even when we lift our hand from the keyboard, we have a reverberation - never have a real silence during a piece of music Nevertheless, we definitely distinguish 'staccato' and 'legato' within piano pieces in spite of the fact that neithe one is physically what we 'perceive'. Here is how MuseScore would have rendered the first few slurs in the bottom staff: I'd certainly be curious to see the results form Dorico or Sibelius! This is very similar what happens with all other instruments as well. They are usually achieved by 'micro-rhythmical adjustments', ie.
Dotted line Dotted slurs are sometimes used in songs where the presence of a slur varies between stanzas. Perhaps professional programmers have much better ideas how to design the user interface of MuseScore. Do you have to create a new way to do it? But like I said, it really isn't standard in general - consult Gould or any authority on engraving practice and you'll see the current recommendation is for a single slur only. This does mean overlapping the hook shape slight, also intersecting ledger lines, both of which are perfectly fine. So slurs have no relevance here - what you arall really asking for is to have MuseScore play melisma with or without slurs different than non-melisma with or with out slurs. And many publications use slurs for reasons of phrasing, not for melismas at all.
If it's piano, then phrasing isn't really affected, either. As I suggested above, I have never in my life seen any suggestion from any reputable source that slurs are to have any effect on how one sings. In many a language therefore there is no distinction between the terms 'slur' or 'tie' - but that's an other story. I described that briefly in where I tried to resolve this issue by introducing this collision detection prior to actual slur moving. You find anything remotely like that for vocal music. And if we relied on slurs, D would play like A because neither have slurs, but it shouldn't - it should play like B, because both are melismas.
Why do we still use so many different keys? Which is why it's hard to even imagine what MuseScore would possibly do here. You have tried and failed to solve the issue yourself and you feel like backup from the group is the only way you can solve this issue. And if different syllables are written over the different notes, they will sing that - slur or no slur. These slurs should have their default position between the 2 note heads and get reset to this position. These original text editors have only one interest: How did the composer write his work. The staccato will be in the second row, third column. Would it be possible to have a device of some sort in the mixer that could alter note pitch in order to create a slur? Those are separate words with a note for each.
From the Slur Properties dialog, you can choose whether you want a solid or a dotted slur. I bet, the second time you will 'feel' as if the two notes were slurred. Have a question about this project? If the notes are repositioned due to changes in the layout, stretch or style, the slur also moves and adjusts in size. I don't think you find anything like universal agreement on that. Since I'm now taking Piano, I've found that they have almost an entirely different of idea of legato than a woodwind player does. So if you want to hear a special sound effect effect when a melisma happens, it would be a mistake for MuseScore to only do this is the melisma happens to also have a slur on - a great many melismas do not have slurs on them.
I do understand that it is first and foremost a typesetting program, but reasonably accurate playback is still important. It was not that hard. Xavierjazz, slurred notes for wind instruments means that they are not tongued so they do not start with a strong attack. It is relevant with a text melisma for a single syllable and slurs. In other cases, there was actually a lot of overlap in the initial placement - as you can see in the image of the first measure bottom staff from 2. If you want a specific length to the tie, play around with where you start the note in the measure.
I happen to have done a bit of programming 30 years ago. And I see other difficulties: 1 There must be a proper distance to the note heads. You have simply opened up the discussion on the forum concerning feature requests. So you mean cases where there are more than two instruments notated on the same staff? Countless times when writing with musescore, I've often wished that it would have playback for slurs. I have no idea if this would be possible, but I do think it would make a really cool addition to what is already a great program.
There are distinct notes being played by the synthesizer in MuseScore. It is frustrating to see them treatened as regular plain notes. Now, I'm sure there's an easier way to create ties, but that's how I do it. Nearly every late romantic piece I've seen has multiple slurs connecting chords mixed with ties as needed. As far as I can remember, it wasn't bad at all. I don't know about the subtle differences you are talking about with Slurs and Melismas. Note: It is not possible to change the start and end anchor notes using the mouse.
