You misunderstood the meaning of what I wrote. When you look at the source on which both Maestro & Bravura were based on, then after 10 sec you will tell me that Bravura looks bolder than maestro witch’s in my opinion objective observation, BUT! IT DOESN’T MEAN what you said, that the team just picked Maestro than applied a bold filter and Bravura is being born then. I was taking about the quick observation made at a glance. I believe that many glyphs differs in both fonts, even if I remake my jazz fonts or even my engraver Soli and Tutti fonts from scratch, I won’t get the same results : nodes, shapes, curves etc…! Things will tend to differ somehow.
I’m basically a jazz pianist, teaching jazz harmony and theory, font design is my passion beside other passions since 20 years ago… I can imagine the hard work spent behind Bravura to make it the best looking music font ever, this is my humble opinion, I love the way how Bravura is being designed and I tend all the time to study it again and again. I never liked Maestro font at all, before Bravura I liked Petrucci so much, why? I don’t know, question of taste! nothing else
p.s: “make it sound like” doesn’t mean at all “how it sounds really”, make a font from scratch from zero, then one day you will catch what I wrote above.
