I don't mind a bit of thread drift here and there, it relieves the monotony! I won't be transcribing Spem in Alium in the foreseeable though Chuck . . .

 

 

 

You're forgiven....and yesterday I got a copy in Finale format so I'm all set anyway!

 

Stick with what you're doing. Interesting stuff.

Just for shelly0312, this one is called "O Willie Brewed a Peck of Malt", presumably turning it into whisky along the way. A 'peck' is of course an avoirdupois unit of volume, explanation here: www.disabled-world.com/artman/publish/imperial-measurements.shtml

Here's a slightly altered version of #40 where abcm2ps doesn't complain about the slur at the start of the third line, and where the slur gets properly placed.

Thanks for doing the error trapping Chuck! I've altered the source files on my PC so the completed file will be correct but once again I am unable to edit my own posts. This must be a fault with the forum software as I get the same problem with three different browsers. There's also the matter of being unable to add hyperlinks to my posts most of the time and if I click on other peoples hyperlinks they always open twice, each in their own new tab. <_<

Better check Farewell to Lochaber (Lochaber No More). It is notated in 3/4 but the meter sig is 4/4. And there's a 2/4 bar at two places in the 3rd line. I don't want to edit because I'm sure you want to match what the collections says.

Thanks Chuck, all errors were mine of course. I must have a concentration problem at the moment as I don't generally make quite so many errors, although one of these was an error first time around that was then copied and pasted a couple of bars later, doh! :rolleyes:

Down with quicktime!

I too really like this Up in the Morning Early - but as you know somewhere back in this thread as I was moaning about Apple not letting me have control of speed unless I pay them for quicktime pro, which meant that many of the abcs here replayed massively too fast for my wee brain, and in most cases I could not even recognise the tune.

 

And Tallship was saying not to use tuneotron anwyay, as not being up to it .

 

SO I have removed quicktime completely off my machine (all 75MB of it.)

 

I now put abc into tuneotron, (as I always used to) press midi after submit, and it offers me save file instead of starting up straightaway.

 

I then find that file in downloads and I have to "open containing folder" (won't "open: direct, but jumps into WindowsMoviemaker telling me it is the wrong format...but I know this from before).

 

From inside the folder and then I can open and play the file with windows media player and within that I can slow speed down (fast normal slow).

 

I am listening now at slow, it is a bit over slow but after 20 mins or more it must be penetrating my brain......

 

But for more refined speed

I also managed to copy and paste the ABC into ABCExplorer and this time I got it to work and hence I have been able to get it to a speed which sounds "good" to me, so I can now more easily try to learn to play it. It also means, having earlier giving up on many of them, I will go back in and paste ABC and have another listen and see what other gems I can find. I also like to play tunes back as machine-gun sound, not just whistle!

 

So thanks again Pete for the valiant effort on all this.

And Tallship was saying not to use tuneotron anwyay, as not being up to it.

 

I think what I said was the excellent Tune-O-Tron doesn't support ABC Plus extentions. Paul put the Tune-O-Tron together as a one off utility, told us that it is what it is and no, he can't make it better. Fair enough I say, the Tune-O-Tron is a great workhorse for simple melodies. In this case I needed to use coding the Tune-O-Tron won't accept in order to achieve a specific goal, that of faithfully reproducing the printed book I had before me.

 

The speed of playback with abc has always been controllable, albeit irregularly according to the software using the Q: field.

 

You need to move away from web based converters and learn to use dedicated software in order to create consistency with abc files. You have my email address, do please feel free to ask me about available software!

 

Pete.

Been there done that. Tonight two of us played a bunch of tunes I know...and I couldn't get through any of them without silly errors. It just happens. Maybe it's "Old Timers" disease. :)

 

I prefer to think of it as "one of those nights". The fact that those night occur ever more frequently is a matter for future discussion I reckon. Should we meet back here to review the situation in say, ten years time? :lol:
