GUEST,pavane Practicing abc notation (34) RE: Practicing abc notation 21 Jan 04


abc draft 2.0

The discrepancies I noted are as follows (I don't claim that they are very significant, though)

a) The example 13.4 Canzonetta uses

%%MIDI program 1 75
The {program} keyword is not defined anywhere in the draft text, although the meaning of the statement is clear.

It should possibly have been coded
%%MIDI Voice 1 Instrument=75
although voices are not necessarily synonymous with MIDI channels

b) The same example uses
%%STAVES [1|2|3]

This directive (staves) is not defined in the document

c) In the Voice command, the examples (Zochartiu Loch) use abbreviation sname= which is not defined. I assumed it meant subname, but the abbreviation for that is snm=
