Specifying key signature in an instrument definition
Can you specify a key signature in an instrument definition?
Native American flutes are a family of transposing instruments. The flutes come in a variety of keys.
However, all Native American flute scores have a key signature of four sharps, regardless of the key of the flute, or the key of the music. The lowest note of the flute is represented by the lowest space on the treble cleff staff (F#).
Is there a way to specify that in an XML instrument definition?
P.S., This is referred to as "Nakai Tablature" (not to be confused with Clint Goss' fingering diagrams).
For Musescore 4, it would be great to have a special text element called "Nakai" that forces the key signature to be four sharps, and to remain four sharps (overriding the "Transpose key signatures" checkbox in the Transpose tool).
That might be a better solution than specifying it as part of the instrument definition.
