A next thing would be to show how this can be used to make flat slurs ;-)
If you try
1-\tweak control-points #'((0 . -5)(1 . -5)(5 . -5)(6 . -5)) ( 1)
you see that the slur stencil procedure can produce a flat line (well,
kind of, with the rounded sandwiching applied), so it’s possible to use
this compoundSlur code with flat segments. I don’t know what you mean –
do you mean ‘Novello-style’ moveable-type-like slurs with a rounded
beginning, a long flat middle segment, and a rounded ending?
By the way, how do the curves appear when the thickness is more
pronounced (i.e., thicker). Does it still come back down to a point at
the end of each segment? My guess is it does (simply because I haven't
tested it myself).
It sure does, and I thought that this is not a problem or in the
contrary preferable because an engraver might have done the same, as in
writing with a quill, so the curve naturally has these ‘bottlenecks’.
