A few months ago I discovered the Groove Pizza App made by the NYU MusEDLab: a circular rhythm app for creative music making and learning. This app is also great for learning and u...
We have recently released a first implementation of ties.
What are ties
A tie is a link between two notes of the same pitch, that add their duration. A half note tied with a quarter note last the same duration than a dotted half note.
Ties is the main mean to create notes that last more than one measure.
However our first implementation only supports ties within a measure.
Cross-measure ties will come in a future release.
A tie is a curve that connect two notes heads of the same pitch.
Ties curve always on the side opposed to the stem.
2 notes chords
Opposite ties curves always on the same side than the stem.
As you can see, ties must not cross the stem.
External ties must be in opposites directions. Internal ties at or above the middle line must curve upward, and the ones lower must
chord with seconds
The theory says that the ties of a second pair should be opposed. Our
implementation do not behave this way. We instead shift the ties extremities according to the notes positions. But the result is a bit disgracefull.
In a future implementation, we will try to follow the theory, but we wonder how case like this should be handled
Here is the button to tie two note heads.
This action ties a note with the note on its right.
The notes to be tied must be of the exact same pitch. Thus this
configuration will not work
