Thank to everybody for the answers, now it's clear the difference between the two writing.

Regarding the specific example Malte explanation was especially useful.

Thank you, g.

Picture wooden building blocks which some of us still might remember from their childhood. Every block has a single slot to attach stuff to.

s8 8 8 are 3 distinct cubes of edge length 1.
s8*3 is a single block measuring 1x1x3.

Cheers, Robert

I don't understand the difference between s8 8 8 and s8*3.

For example have a look to the following code that engrave two scores:

\version "2.19.81"
rh = \fixed c'{g8 8 8 8}

dyn = { s8 \> 8 8 8 \!}
{ << \rh \new Dynamics \dyn >> }

dyn = { s8 \> 8*3 \!}
{ << \rh \new Dynamics \dyn >> }

These are the resulting scores:

I expected that dynamics would be the same. Why they are not?
Thank you, g.
