## Re: different rhythmic units for tuplet's numerator and denominator

Hi Uri,


So, the only solution is to indicate in the bracket 3$:5& (where$=eight note sign and &=sixteen note sign). I am very new to lilypond, and know no scheme.
Is what I am asking possible?



Absolutely -- the following example, while not perfect, should give you the hints you need.

Hope this helps!
Kieren.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\version "2.11.49"

tupletExample = \markup
{
\line
{

"5" \translate #'(-0.2 . 0) \fontsize #-4 \general-align #Y #DOWN \note #"8" #1
                :

"3" \translate #'(-0.2 . 0) \fontsize #-4 \general-align #Y #DOWN \note #"16" #1
        }
}

upper = \relative
{
c'4 c \times 4/3 { c4*1/2 c c }
c4 c \times 4/3 { c8 c c }
}
lower = \relative

\once \override TupletNumber #'Y-offset = #3
