Survey: Opinions on Music Notation & Scores

One of my next projects will be designing quality music symbol fonts. Getting back to my roots, so to speak. My first foray into type design 20+ years ago was working on music notation software research and development projects.

The resultant fonts will be for use within music notation programs, such as Noteability ProSibelius (@AvidSibelius), Finale (@finaleofficial), LilyPond (@GNU_LilyPond & @LilyPondBlog), MusiXTeX, MuseScore (@MuseScore), and Steinberg’s (@steinbergmediaDorico by former Sibelius engineers (@dspreadbury has been writing the scoring application’s progress notes in the Steinberg blog Making Notes). The Steinberg folk have been working on SMuFL (Standard Music Font Layout) which I also plan to support.

I’m interested in hearing opinions on various aspects of scores you’ve used. What you liked, what caused issues during rehearsal, etc. If you’d prefer, you can send your opinions via email: music-survey@slantedhall.com

Here’s the direct link to the embedded survey below.
