Default Arpeggios and enharmonic spelling

Hi friends,

There is currently an issue in some cases (not all) when adding an arpeggio to a chord contained in a triplet. I've written up the fix report, but in the meantime, it may help some folks to know the workaround. I've put together a short video to show you the steps to (1) get the arpeggio and (2) correct the enharmonic spellings*.

You can watch or download the video by clicking here.


*Enharmonic spelling refers to a note that has the same pitch, but can be "spelled" different ways. For instance, a G# and an Ab both have the same pitch, but depending on how the rest of the notation in a piece is written, it may make more musical sense to the musician playing it to have the note pitch "spelled" one way rather than the other. For example, if there is a descending line of notes, it makes easier reading if going from A to Ab/G# to G if the notation shows A Ab G since the Ab is going down from the A, rather than G#, which is sort of equivalent to thinking "a half step up from G" while going down Alternatively, some folks just think musically about some notes better with certain spellings. Our software gives you options
