Nested tuplets in Score Editor

Thu Jan 16, 2014 6:45 am

Thread title says it all.

But if you don't know what these are, it's a tuplet inside of another tuplet.

E.g. A 1/2 note triplet with each of the half notes involving its own tuplet, like 5 1/8ths in the space of 4 1/8s, etc.

Finale and Sibelius can both do this, but of course they're dedicated notation apps.

Do the Logic developers happen to read this forum?
If not, then is there a place I could send this request where they'd be more likely to see it?

That sure looks right!
Does it play back properly?
And how the hell did you do that?

Now you want it to play back correctly too....Jeez....
No the example above it set to look correct but not play back correctly.
I need to think about how to achieve that... you might have stumped me on that one...
The nested quintuplets in the context of the triplets in a time signature not divisible by 5 is the challenge. Off the top of my head I can't think of a way to achieve both correct display and correct playback - I could get the first and third set of quintuplets to playback correctly but the middle one would be off by 1/16th ( paradox) but let me think on that one a while...- Check back in 6 years :)
