Early European Notation

• Nov 3, 2021 - 10:13

The noteheads are diamonds. I don't know the value difference between black and white. I also don't know the symbols before the notes. Are those symbols available on MuseScore? If not, as long as I know what they mean, I can create a soundfile and the postprocessor can use the original image for the HTML.

Thank you, geniuses. You are all amazing! <3

The Symbols palette of the Master palette has them, search for 'notehead' there.
So they are available in MuseScore too, but not as 'first class citizen" noteheads

Thanks, Jojo.

In the Inspector, I I can change the head group and get diamonds. However, I haven't been able to find a way to change breves, etc. I believe the left pointing flag may be a breve, but I don't know why it's placed on different lines. I haven't been able to find the other two symbols online ... yet.... ;)

Thanks for always being available to help, Jojo. I truly appreciate it. <3

That diamond one not the same as the mensural ones, which have the barline centered.
It may serve as a workaround though.
That left pointing flag you be a "Longa/brevis nothead, void" <sym>mensuralNoteheadLongaVoid</sym> or a "Maxima noteheard, void" <sym>mensuralNoteheadMaximaVoid</sym>
