Ah! Then I'm sorry it took me so long to reply to the thread. I've been travelling (of course ...) and so not very disciplined about keeping up with the list.

When you have time to go back to the piece, reply back with whatever results you're getting to the thread. I'm curious to see what you find ...

Ciao Trevor,

I was in fact waiting for your reply...:)
I have suspended the experimentation for the moment, but as soon as I can I'll test it.
Yes, I have floats.




Hi Andrea,

Warning: completely untested idea: but could you simply use proportional notation with  4/4 (hide all the barlines, meters, etc) and then renotate each floating point value as a fraction over 1000 (or 10000)?

     c'1 * 3921/1000
     c'1 * 689/1000

(I'm assuming you probably have lists of floats that represent durations or attack times, yes?)
