What's new ?




The main new feature in this version is the embedding of the Kooplet music search engine.
Directly from Melody Assistant or Harmony Assistant, you can search the thousands of score files publicly available on the Internet (*) for a music pattern or a text excerpt.
On top of a music score editor, a huge music library is at your disposal.

(*) Usage rights for downloaded music files have to be checked from the original hosting site or from the score author. You must ensure that the score is free of right before any private or public use.

Harmony Assistant 9.6

Melody Assistant 7.6

March 2011- July 2013



Harmony Assistant 9.6.3 - Melody Assistant 7.6.3

June-July 2013


New


  1. To insert very low or high pitched notes outside the staff area, you can press the Shift key while inserting the note.
  2. In multi-voice staves or in a staff group, it's now possible to insert notes that continue the melody that has been written on the above or below staff (continuous input). It becomes easy to write a melody that switches between staves without having to fill with rests.
  3. An option shows the rests in continuous input
  4. New accidental notation: Old accidental cancellation
  5. When importing a Karaoke MIDI file or a MusicXML file with lyrics, the algorithm for deciding on what language to use (for Virtual Singer) has been completely rethought. It is now much more accurate.
  6. When inserting points in parameter curves, the Shift key enables to insert a "end of curve" point, that is detached from the following point. This enables to create discontinuous segments, or even isolated points.
  7. New optional way to display flagged notes : flags are displayed as unconnected horizontal beams (Flamenco notation)
  8. New ornaments : golpe (guitar body hit for flamenco), strumming up, strumming down
  9. In the complete mixer, it's now possible to adjust volume or panning of all the select staves at once, by pressing the Alt key while a value is changed.
  10. Now possible to hear the hovered notes on score
  11. New kind of tablature for Kuntigui, a single-stringed African instrument
  12. Pictures related to staves are now exported and imported in MusicXML
  13. Harmony Assistant: A new "Voice meter" script lets you hear the beats and fractions of beats, counted by a human voice (German Auszählen)
  14. Harmony Assistant: Two piano learning scripts enable to view and fix performer mistakes when playing a complete score, or to view the note names to be played step-by-step
  15. Harmony Assistant: A "MIDI-Digital Sync" script helps computing very finely the audio output latency, and doing so synchronize Digital output with MIDI output
  16. Harmony Assistant: When the compressed MusicXML format is used (.mxl), pictures that are embedded in the document are processed according to the mxl guidelines and recognised as such by music programs that manage pictures
  17. Harmony Assistant / MyrScript: New powerful graphical functions ("Surface" object) enables to work on picture, and import or export them in various formats.
  18. Harmony Assistant / MyrScript: Quick help on the selected word in the script editor
  19. Harmony Assistant / MyrScript: Auto-completion of keywords, variable and function names in the script editor

Improvements


  1. Changing a measure width through the ruler handle now changes the next measure with in order not to alter the total width of the system. The previous way or managing measure width is still available by pressing the Ctrl (Windows/Linux) or Command (Macintosh) key while moving the handle.
  2. In the French version, the term for "beaming" has been changed from "accroche" to "ligature"
  3. Possible to beam eighth notes by groups of 4 in 4/4 time signature
  4. When working on a note, the area on which beams are recomputed has been shrinked in order to impact as few notes as possible

  10. Play cursor can now switch smoothly between bars.
  11. Notes outside pitch range (Edit > Search) are now located while taking transposing instruments into account. To make this search run properly with some instruments (e.g. clarinet), transposition has then to be set as expected.
  12. Some items of the interface slightly overlapped.
  13. Play cursor width can now be adjusted
  14. Improvement in the appearance of drum grid staves. The various line widths can now be adjusted in the score appearance box

  24. Mouse wheel handling has been implemented in mixers and on the document itself: titles, text related to a staff, staff name, etc. Using the mouse wheel on a scroll bar, a slider or a knob will increase or decrease its value.
  25. Text alignment mode can now be selected in manual chord line settings
  26. When the user adjusts manually a slur symbol control handle, the "automatic adjust" setting is deactivated for this slur.
  27. Dynamics now apply to all the staves in a multi-voice staff, even if the staff became multi-voice after the dynamics has been inserted
  28. When some palettes were moved outside the screen bounds, they jumped back too far to the center of the screen
  29. Virtual Singer palette has been redesigned. Icon positioning now occurs in perspective on the stage
  30. When targets were present on an empty line, the staff was displayed even if "do not print empty staves" was turned on. Now, the staff isn't displayed anymore, but the target mark is
  31. New tuplet display and editing. This can slightly change the appearance of existing scores.

  33. Now possible to insert dynamics and solme other kinds of objects in velocity edit mode
  34. New default area for dynamics and tempi, that avoid areas that can't be accessed by the mouse
