Updates on the new Roman numerals input

Reminder: What are Roman numerals?

Roman numerals are one way of writing music chords. They help identify chords in a key, no matter which notes are used. Musicians use Roman numerals to analyze the chord progressions in a piece of music.

Accidentals better interpreted by ornaments

We've made significant improvements to the interpretation of ornaments, such as trills and mordents, in relation to key signatures and previous accidentals within the measure. With these enhancements, the playback of these expressive embellishments now accurately reflects the intended musical interpretation, taking into account the appropriate key signature and any preceding accidentals. This refinement ensures a more faithful representation of your compositions, providing a richer and more nuanced musical experience.
