Hi all! How does human playback know that a fermata is a fermata? I've added some longer and shorter fermata symbols, but HP is ignoring them. The duration percentage specifications in the articulation designer only affect length but without halting the tempo. Thanks! Steve P.

Sonora font. As articulations, with settings identical to the Maestro fermata that HP recognises. I was hoping to roughly specify short, standard and long pauses, but the duration settings only affect length and not tempo. Can I at least make my pauses the same as the Maestro one for HP?

It recognizes the Fermatta character in the Maestro font. It doesn't recognize music characters in most non-MM music fonts. Cheers, - DJA - WEB: http://www.secretsocietymusic.org On 12 Jan 2011, at 7:19 PM, Steve Parker wrote: This is what I'm doing as a workaround. But how does HP

Steve, There is nothing special about Maestro itself. HP is programmed to look for character X (i.e., whatever character slot corresponds to the fermatta character) when font = Maestro. HP does not do that for most third-party music fonts, because it doesn't know which character is in which
