Download and print in PDF or MIDI free sheet music for Inversion and Voicing arranged by Marc Sabatella for Piano (Solo) In one method, you preserve the general shape of the line but the exact intervals are *modified to stay in the key*. I want to highlight some number of measures and invert them absolutely chromatically. Hiwever, if that's what you mean, again, your example actually shows something else. Like an upward C - E - G would become a downward C - Ab - F? It's about realizing that the musical concept of inversion requires use of musical terms, not just visual ones, because it is *not* a purely visual phenomenon. A note that is N steps *above* the vertical axis of symmetry in the prime maps to a note that is N steps *below* the vertical axis, and vice versa. Your pitch axis is somewhere else. Then it goes through all notes and swaps them. At least the way I do it. Motes with sharps in the prime may turn into notes with flats, or notes with no accidental, in the inversion. Well, I might start a new thread for this or I might continue in this thread, because lots of interestting aspects have come up in this thread. Am I missing something, or am I deluded as to my previous actions? An interval perfect inversion would be C Bb Ab, with no respect to any key. Who ever said you should bow out? I have autism, and I like certain things. But I do not think I will be using it. If this is the sort of thing that you mean then it could be used as part of a larger plugin that has user-selectable values, If it isn't what you're after then I have failed to understand the gist of this thread. How do I get it to notate in the score for each instrument. So I simply have no way of knowing how you intend "reflective symmetry" to apply to music - it is just not something that there is any standard for in the musical world. I know because I checked. I am sorry if we are not understanding one another, and I'm sorry if the picture I posted was the wrong one. As I said, if you want to carry on discussing your other kinds of inversion, feel free. You are the one changing the subject, from inversions in general to some specific kind that you have still not clearly defined. That's why you expected middle C below the staff to map to A above the staff - because one is written graphically as one ledger line below the staff, the other is written graphically as one ledger line above the staff. I think you are placing your axis of symmetry through the centre of the first note - and that is not what I am doing at all. If it helps, the axis of horizontal symmetry is on the line where we write C6 (high C) in the inversion and C4 (middle C) in the prime. Inversion could be implemented as a special "alternate" kind of transposition, on the "Notes" menu dropdown; options would be: diatonic inversion (specify a "tonic" for the key, and a pivot note), or chromatic inversion (specify a pivot note only). In … It's a simple question with a simple yes/no answer: either what you are wanting is a form of inversion or not. It is most definitely *not* a simple visual reflection.

I do not want to be involved. By enabling a plugin, a new menu option is appended to the Plugins menu: subsequently, when this option is selected, the plugin performs a particular task in the score. That turns out to be not an inversion at all. You select some bars with a melodic line that you want to invert. Accordion chord notation with chord playback. Perhaps your plug-in would work for different types of inversions and keep everybody happy if you could find a way to specify and vary the pitch axis required. I guess it could work something like this. Bars 1&2 is the original melody. Maybe I've still got my explanation wrong, then.

I have had a look at the plugins page and can't see that one yet but have downloaded another one to see if I can do the process. In reply to Thank you for your reply. But unfortunately, the fact that your posted example is showing something *entirely different* from what you say you want means there is no way for us to be sure what you want. The trouble is that I know exactly what I mean, but I do not know how to explain it in all the correct posh technical terms. The user will be able to choose between diatonic or real inversion, and also the key. Maybe I've still got by Resopmoc. Frequently asked questions about MuseScore.com.

As a very simple example, E-F-G in the key of C could be inverted to E-D-C. Three notes stepping up become three notes stepping down, all still in the key of C. This is sometimes called a diatonic inversion. In which case, the "pure untampered with inversion of E-F-G" is Ab-G-F. Meaning a line that strictly ascending has now turned into one that alternates between ascending and descending. C4: pitch 60, tpc 14 Since we're reflecting downwards, the starting A in the new, reflected line needs to be ABOVE the stave - just as the starting C in the original was below it. However, if you actually mean to do something different with the accidentals, so that C-C#-D-D# maps to something other than A-#-G-G#, then it may indeed still turn out to be a type of inversion. It's not enough to just say the reflected line needs to be above or below - the question is, *exactly how far* above or below. Please log in first to post your question. The third note of the inversion is Bb - written in in the space just above the staff (so far so good) *but with an added flat sign*.

In the retrograde plugin, I put all the chords and rests of the selection in an array, then reverse the array and create a new score where I write the chords and rests. Like bar 2? BTW, regarsing the misunderstanding about axis of symmetry: you referred to horiztonal symmetry, which is a somewhat ambiguous term, especially when applied to music, I see now that you meant a horizontal *axis* of symmetry, which in musical terms reaults on *vertical* symmetry. There will always be a free account available for MuseScore.com. Bars 3&4 are same inverted (I did it by hand). The notes follow the diatonic scale of D major.

As long as you promise to only write your notes in treble clef, if I haven't taken a deeper look at the accidentals, but I know it won't be easy. A mixolydian ascending scale G A B C D E F G turns beautifully into a natural A minor descending scale A G F E D C B A, where all whole steps and half steps are in order. So notes with no accidentals would remain notes with no accidentals, would they not? And I'm going to implement both ways as a plugin. It's a basic computer concept - a place where related files go. Is 'viewing 2 pages arranged horizontally with scrolling vertically' possible? That's fine, but it does mean your initial descriptions were incorrect. That would be tampering with the original, and it wouldn't be a true reflection any more. There might a special case when crossing the -1 / 33 limits of the tpc, but it should not happen as it would required triple acidentals (tpc = -2 would be Bbbb and tpc = 34 would be F###), which are outside current music practice. I happen to be very fond of instruments playing in the bass cleff range, like the cello, the bassoon and the baryton horn. Bars 5&6 are bars 3&4 transposed diatonically a 4th down (I did that with my plugin). I do not know what the terms "interval perfect inversion" and diatonic inversion" mean, but, if one of those terms refers to a reflection, that's the kind of inversion I'm interested in. : pitch = 56 - (+1) = 55; tpc = 10 - (-5) = 15 => G3 An interval perfect inversion would be C Bb Ab, with no respect to any key. The "Retrograde" plugin is right where it belongs, with the other R's, toward the end of the list. Then, by placing a mirror horizontally along the high C line of the retrograde, you can view the retrograde inversion. Anyway, while generating exact interval inversion, inverting the tpc delta too might get your accidentals right. Just because nobody else seems to like these type of inversions doesn't mean they aren't equally as valid or interesting to me as the kind that you happen to like are to you. Everything should become a mirror image. Think of an upward melody line C D E. A diatonic inversion would be downwards C B A, following the tones in a C major scale. I think both diatonic and perfect inversions could be useful as plugin … I am not very good at those numbers yet! I guess you will get the best result by doing the inversion by hand. (See the example I linked to in the original post). Yes? To alter one note, I change its pitch and I alter its tonal pitch class. Also,if you place a mirror vertically along the end of the line, you will be able to view the retrograde. Anyhow, feel free to drop out of the discussion. When using a 64-bit installation of Reaper, all 32-bit plugins will still work alongside 64-bit plugins. So if you now want to change the discussion to only be about one specific sub-type of inversion, that's fine, but don't accuse *me* of diverting the thread. If you can tell the program to do that, the result will be correct. I'm afraid I do not know. But you did originate the thread asking abiut inversion, which is a common musical device and worthy of a plugin.
