The meter mentioned before, 12 = 3+2+2+3+2 with quadruplets, is very popular in the historical region of Macedonia, on both the Macedonian and the Greek side (though a lot seems to play it in 16 = 4+2+3+4+3). There is a music example here, listening for especially at about time 2:00 and after.

So here, to get subbeaming expressing the musical pattern, one might want to write the meter as
```  ((4:3)(2+2) + (2 + 2)) + ((4:3)(2+2) + 2) * 1/16

```
It is possible to sometimes have quadruplets on the 3s, and sometimes not. For example, in the original version of Makedonsko Devojce, which is in 7 = 3+2+2. So one might want ot have more patterns:
```  3+(2+2) * 1/16
(4:3)(2+2) + (2+2) * 1/16

```
These metric patterns are then quite similar for other beaming patterns, only that the latter can be applied to other than whole measures.
