Re: "Sagispeak"

Just downloaded the new Excel spreadsheet and the Bravura Text SC font, and find that the troublesome accidentals now display correctly on Windows 7 . Interestingly, in the Excel formula bar, every one of the Bravura Text SC characters still displays as Chinese! Why they do, I don't know - yet .

Re: "Sagispeak"

Just installed the latest LibreOffice 7.0.4.2 (x64) (with locale :en-AU; UI : en-GB) on my Windows 8.1 laptop, then loaded the .ods spreadsheet. Unfortunately the Olympian (U+E3F4 - U+E3F7) and Magrathean (U+E3F8 - U+E40B) symbols still appear as (mostly) Chinese characters, with a few communication...

Re: "Sagispeak"

Thanks Dave, and Douglas. : D I've downloaded and installed the Bravura fonts and downloaded the spreadsheets, in both formats. As I only have an old version of MS Office (2003) on this old Win7 desktop, I also have the compatibility pack, which automatically converts Excel 2007 format (.xlsx) to Ex...

Re: "Sagispeak"

Dave, is that magnificent table "Sagittal-SMuFL-Map.pdf" also available in other formats? I'm thinking particularly of Microsoft Excel spreadsheet or Word document formats, or their open source software equivalents. I'd like to be able to print it out as a reference (ideally as an A3 wall ...

Re: Is there an edo that takes every Spartan accidental and nothing else?

I'd like to know more about your question. For example:
  • How did you think of it?(E.g. just as a curiosity, or for some potential advantage.)
  • Why does the answer matter to you?
  • What are its practical consequences for musicians?

Re: 39-odd limit diamond in Olympian

Thanks Cam! But when I try to download them I get a message "The selected attachment does not exist anymore." Do you have any idea why? I can still download your original 39-limit chart. I've just downloaded both successfully. Then I opened them in Word 2003 and saved them in the older &q...

Re: 39-odd limit diamond in Olympian

Nice work, Cam! And I really appreciate the info on the research on usage frequencies (in Scala) done by yourself, Dave, and Gene, particularly the ultra-Zipf-law-like behaviour. It gives one confidence that just about anything JI has been well considered in the design of Sagi. I did mean Spartan (p...
