I’ve searched the forums to see what Is available to do on Dorico for Irrational Measures. The reason for doing so is that i’m working on a piece that is mostly in a 3/8 meter, but occasionally will go into a measure of two of 3/6 or 3/10 (also 4/16, 4/12, and 4/20). I understand that Dorico can display it correctly – but can’t play it back directly. I can work around the tempos (I’ve created a spreadsheet that can calculate the correct tempo to put on the measure), but that can get a little tedious.
Would it be possible to correct/select things like a 1/6th note or a 1/20th note from the selection of notes? Currently we can pick only the standard rational notes. IF we are able to type in the proper note in, wouldn’t Dorico be able to recognize that length? There could also be a way to label them (maybe a small number left of the stem, for example a “20” to designate it a 20th note from the standard 16th note?) I know some composers don’t bother with a different labeling, so there could be an option to turn it off (for example, the 20th notes above would look like standard 16th notes in the irrational measures.)
Am I crazy? Would it be possible to program something like this in the program?
