I’m working on a piece and want to use some Henry Cowell-inspired meters (for example 5/6, 4/5). I know that Dorico supports using such meters.
The piece I’m using has encountered a problem, though!
In previous attempts at experimenting with such a meter (5/6), I get what’s expected: space for 5 quarter notes. The metric playback isn’t correct, but at least it looks correct:
However, in the project I’m currently working on, it’s only giving space for 4 quarters:
What’s happening? How can I get this to work correctly (WITHOUT pulling a Finale/Sibelius backdoor of making a Tuplet and hiding all the stuff)? I know Dorico supports this function - why is it failing in THIS project?
Related question: Are there plans to get the software to natively support the correct playback of such meters? At the end of the day, it’s a simple multiplication/division equation to occur in the background.
