Add solfa names as lyrics (movable Do; La or Do based minor; chromatic alteration)


Wow, you have a beautiful voice :)

  • This plugin adds sol-fa names using Lyrics text
  • Movable Do: Do = tonic (of relative Major)
  • La based minor: Do remains unchanged for modes, eg in A minor, A = La, C= Do
  • or Do based minor eg in A minor, A = Do, C= Me
  • Chromatic alteration eg Raised Sol = Si, based on wikipedia
  • leading note = Ti
  • Tweak to your liking by editing .qml , see screenshot below, eg edit solfa names; replace tpc1 with tpc2 to name written pitches for transposing instruments.
