Support for Tab on non-standard fretted instruments?
Hi, is there a way to create a Tab staff that has different fret width intervals? I have a quartertone fretted guitar, and I like to write the tab for that in whole numbers, but that means things like the octave is the 24th fret, not the 12th fret. (This has interesting properties, by the way; where if the instrument is tuned in all fourths, the 10th fret is equivalent to the 0th fret on the next higher string)
I attempted to create a tab-only staff, and adjust the instrument properties so that it had 48 frets. This was only partially
successful. I was able to enter 48 frets under the staff properties->String data menu, but when attempting to enter note values on the resultant staff, it only lets me type in "24". "25" and higher result in "?" appearing on the staff.
Furthermore, even if this workaround was successful, I would not be able to generate proper quartertone notated sheet music in a linked staff, or have any playback capabilities, so it's only a half-solution at best.
Ideally I'd like to be able to define the number of frets and the fretting interval in cents, which would also allow me to write tab for stranger instruments, like 16-EDO fretted guitars.
