Bar Metadata

For bars various tags can be specified which change information like clefs, key signatures repeats etc. They follow the format \tag value value just like the score metadata. Be sure not to mix the score metadata and the bar metadata of the first bar.

Time Signatures

Time signatures have the format \ts Numerator Denominator

\ts 3 4 | \ts 4 4 | \ts 6 8

Repeats

Repeats can be started with \ro and be closed with \rc Count. Count specifies how often the bar range is repeated.

\ro 1.3 2.3 3.3 4.3 | 5.3 6.3 7.3 8.3 | \rc 2 1.3 2.3 3.3 4.3 | \ro \rc 3 1.3 2.3 3.3 4.3 |

The key signature can be specified with \ks Value where the value is one of the following: Cb, Gb, Db, Ab, Eb, Bb, F, C, G, D, A, E, B, F#, C#

\ks Cb | \ks C | \ks C#

Clef

To change the clef simply specify \clef Clef where Clef is one of the following values: G2, Treble, F4, Bass, C3, Tenor, C4, Alto, N, Neutral

\clef G2 | \clef F4 | \clef C3 | \clef C4 | \clef N | \clef Treble | \clef Bass | \clef Tenor | \clef Alto | \clef Neutral |

Tempo

To change the tempo of the score you can specify \tempo BPM.

// score meta also supports \tempo, therefore we skip the score meta with a dot . // bars \tempo 30 1.3 2.3 3.3 4.3 | \tempo 80 1.3 2.3 3.3 4.3 |
