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.

comment Electronic Wind Instrument technique resources
@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.

comment Does Dr Dre produce himself the “ambient intro” tracks of his videos?
Those kinds of questions are nominally on-topic--more so provided the asker has done some initial research and has specific problems to address, instead of asking something totally open ended. But there are a number of popular forums for music producing that might be a better fit for the open ended questions.

Hi -- this question is off-topic on this site, but would probably be a good fit for the Music Fans proposal that is currently on Area 51. If you're interested in a site for questions like this, go and commit to the beta!

comment Chord analysis of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No.2 Movement 1 mm 86
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!

comment How are tuplets drawn?
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.

comment Why Seven Principal Tones?
Can you please elaborate? Your second sentence is unclear, and I don't see how the first is not answered by many questions already asked on this site.

comment Does there exist a singer's muzzle or silencer?
A particularly advanced sound isolation room can actually provide variable virtual acoustics, so you can make it sound like you're in a large hall, or even act as a dampener so everything isn't coming right back at you.

comment Does there exist a singer's muzzle or silencer?
I am confused. If you are partially deaf, I understand the concern for your neighbors' peace and quiet since you may not be able to tell how loud you are, but I was not aware that any kind of partial deafness made your ears easier to damage. You should not be able to damage your own hearing with your own voice without any kind of amplification.

comment Relationship between 3/4 and 4/4
Sorry @LeeKowalkowski -- that was a kind of odd sentence construction. I'll change "argue" to "dispute" to make it clearer.

comment Does improvisation in the classical idiom differ significantly from jazz and folk improvisation?
I've edited and reopened -- broad is off-topic, but general is not.

comment What are the principles of improvisation in Indian music?
This is possibly too broad, but the text in your question body looks like it could lead to an interesting question. Can you pick a part of that to latch on to and edit this one, similar to how I've edited some of your other questions?
