hello again,

thanks, i was aware of it; it is perfectly relevant.

Well, so far I am feeding integers produced by patches in pd. these integers have a reference duration (like 1 = 16th, 2 = 8th, etc.). I am also allowing floating point info like 1.33 1.33 1.33 to make tuplets
so no quantization or proportional notation is needed so far for this external (because input is precise) , although others are on the works and I agree that proportional duration would be really nice, I'll keep it in mind.

It would be nice to have have the choice to write the score with proportional notation (duration would be exactly translated in space between quarter-notes) or quantification of time (with a message that tells your external which possible subdivisions of the beat you allow).
I am doing something like this quantification on Common Lisp, but it would be nice to have some lilypond code that creates proportional notation with note-spacing and a seconds grid above the score... (maybe with postscript markups above skips)..
Althought quantification is more detailed, proportional notation is a very good tool when composing (even as a sketch or a composing plan)..

Hello again,

I am developing a PD external that formats pairs of pd midi pitches and durations into lilypond scores. do any of you know of other externals / code I should be aware of?
