GSoC 2022 - Harp pedalling week 8
This week was spent tidying up the last bits relevent to the MVP. Unfortunately, the placement of the diagram on the score is proving difficult and isn't quite finished yet.
I talked to a few harp players, looked through some music and had a go on a pedal harp (which was quite difficult - not an option for a career change!) to give me a feel for where pedal changes should be placed "horizonally" on a score. Damping of the strings needs to be taken into account, and different harpists have different opinions on how much warning to give. This will be helpful if/when I get to creating an automatic pedalling function.
Next week I will continue trying to get the popup placed correctly on the score. I'd also like to move onto thinking about a proofreading function, as I think I'll be able to fit it in comfortably with the time left before September and the end of GSoC.
