Software Platforms & Playback

Some clients have requested properly tuned playback using some of the more popular commercial notation programs. The only software package I know about that seems to be able to handle this might be Lime, at the CERL Sound group.

Micro works well as a displayed articulation or expression with Sibelius and Finale, but adding accurate playback would be possible but not feasible. The most accurate (pitch and rhythm) system I know is a double precision DOS port of a synthsizer built but no longer supported for Ezra Sims.

Mac OS X Panther

One Mac OS X (Panther) user reported difficulty in loading and seeing the Mac versions of the TrueType font. The solution was to load and use the version constructed for the PC. If you have problems, let me know, but this should work without too much problem. (tedmook@mindeartheart.org)
