Maximum Fret

• Nov 4, 2010 - 01:59

I was trying to do a simple Music / TAB tonight and ran into the issue of maximum fret. It should probably be set per instrument. but left adjustable.

Electric guitar is 21 to 24 frets
Acoustic/Classical guitar is around 18-20

Otherwise if it is not set per instrument, then setting it to 24 will get most modern fretted instruments.


Apparently, the number of frets is customizable per instrument. However, this involves modifying the instruments.xml file, an operation which is not particularly user-friendly at the moment. This way, I could tentatively set the number of frets for the Lute to 18.

Of particular interest: the pitch of each string is also customizable in the same way.
