Approximate Time Token

I have a symphonic work with multiple movements (flows). At present, I am using {@flowduration@} in the flow header for the score to give the conductor an indication of timing for each movement. The nice thing about using the token is that the timing will update automatically as changes are made in the score. This produces accurate timing but what is really wanted is approximate timing rounded to the nearest 10 or 15 seconds… Writing 5’01" really looks silly when 5’00" is a more normal convention.

Amy ideas?


Once your piece is in the final stages, then you can replace the duration token with another token for a text field.

Having a token that produces an approximate duration is a good idea, and not one that I can remember having been made before. I’ve made a note of it.
