The way Dorico handles pedal harps is really impressive, keeping track of the pedals, creating pedal diagrams, warning about notes that are not accessible with the current pedal configuration. However, I often write for lever harp. I’m tempted to ask for the same level of support for lever harps (keeping track of levers and lever switches), but I imagine it would require a lot of work and might not be a priority for a while. In the meantime, is there a way to turn off the pedal harp functionality so that I don’t get warnings related to pedal configurations when I’m writing for lever harp?
For that I would use a Piano instrument and change the sound to Harp manually. (One disadvantage of that is that glissandos play chromatically.)
I’m curious about the details of lever harp notation. I have arranged a bit for a friend playing lever harp, but I haven’t seen published scores, so I was making up the notation for changes.
That’s not a bad idea, thanks. For lever changes, there was a good pdf on the topic shared here:
Personally, I prefer the diamond notation.
