Roman Numeral Analysis
When I heard MuseScore was to support Roman Numeral Analysis (RNA), I thought "great". Now I'm not so sure.
I've been using Roman numeral chords for some time - around four decades actually. I’d been using MuseScore’s standard chord feature for the Roman numeral chords. But I haven't been using them in exactly the way described in the wikipedia article:
I suppose what I've been doing, is using the best bits of RNA and applying the KISS principles described here:
So the arcane and complex notation of chord inversions derived from figured bass is out. And instead the 1st inversion is denoted with “b” and the 2nd inversion with “c”. I’d not invented that way of notating it. And looking about the internet generally, it seems many other people use that simpler method of notating inversions using Roman numeral chords.
With MuseScore RNA, is there a way of entering chords like: Ib without MuseScore changing the b into a flat? Or should I ignore RNA, and enter simple Roman numeral chords as standard MuseScore chords like I have until now?
