# Quintuplet over 3/16th

For quintuplets over 4/16th notes I can use 16th note quintuplet. For quintuplets over 2/16th notes I can use 32nd note quintuplet.

Is there any notation for quintuplets over 3/16th notes? Imagine having a transition for 13/16th and finish with a quintuplet.

To me, only the notation is interesting - whether I need to change the metric, tempo or is there something special. This is not a real music question - just digging a bit in the theory and could not find any resources on this.

Reference for 32nd quintuplets

Edit: This is what I get after using MuseScore as recommended in the answers. Not quite sure about the second measure, where 6 notes are beamed together as quintuplet, but one of them is proper 16th note, and 5 are 5/3?

Edit 2: I have actually found notation for this on wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuplet. There is notation as mentioned in the answer - section Counting. This is exactly what I was looking for - 5:3 above the quintuplet. Also thing called nested tuplets looks really interesting.

• Not sure about the first measure in your example. The first quintuplet looks as though it should take a whole crotchet (quarter note). Then there is a 16th rest followed by 12 16ths. Doesn't add up unless you regard the quintuplet as taking up 3 16ths but that is by no means clear.

• Yes, I agree, but this is what the MuseScore gives. If there is any other notation to write - like 5/3, I'd like to see it. The same goes for 3/16 measure, where a 16th note quintuplet won't fit. Commented Jun 13, 2019 at 6:56

• Second measure- definitely need a beam/bracket with 5:3 to make it clear the last printed 16th is a "regular" 16th note. I'd strongly recommend this for the first measure as well. Commented Jun 13, 2019 at 14:56
• FWIW, unless this is Adagio or slower, the performer is not going to be able to play the six notes exactly in-time, nor will any audience be able to tell. Beware of "what you imagine" vs. "what you can get" Commented Jun 13, 2019 at 14:58
