comment Electronic Wind Instrument technique resources
OP: Could you add some information about why you've chosen a flute fingering map? Do you have experience playing the C transverse flute, or any other woodwind instruments? If the EWI is your only instrument, a different fingering map might be more appropriate.

@Kevin You are right about questions that are broadly asking about broad topics, but there's nothing wrong with long answers. This question seems fine with a little clarification, as it has some specific problems it is looking to solve.

comment Is “16va” proper notation?
@supercat You're not wrong! I think some of the contemporary usage in the English speaking world comes from teachers and students equating '8va' with "octave above" and '8vb' with "octave below" even though it should really be "ottava" on its own.

Can you edit the question to include your current thought process on the matter? What does it look like to you, and what is giving you doubts? Straight analysis (like a homework question) is generally off-topic, but it's much better if we can help you solve a problem.

comment Four dotted sixteenths in a triplet
@Widor True, but this typesetting is from 2007. The best answer to "why?" would probably be to contact Jayme Mendonça Luna Filho who set this edition and ask him directly...

comment Why play out of scale notes as part of a chord?
Comments are not the place for extended discussion. We can continue in Musical Practice & Performance Chat if you like.

@caters Beethoven's 5th is full of B naturals used in V7 chords.

comment Why play out of scale notes as part of a chord?
@caters I would disagree. At least in the context of western classical music known as "common practice" harmony, the dominant 7th chord is tremendously important and appears this way in both major and minor key signatures. Modal harmony (natural minor/aeolian) is not what we would call common practice.

Oof. Well, at least you won't have users of your application complaining if something looks a little off. Have fun!

Musical notation is incredibly complex, and if you're writing engraving software without a certain level of competency, you're going to have a bad time. I would strongly recommend finding a collaborator experienced in musical typesetting; at the very least to check your work.
