10-hole automatically assumes Asian fingering and the Italian fingering option is missing. Key of C is also assumed automatically, although this is not the case for all ocarinas. You should make a multi-octave key selector for choosing the base note.

One step ahead of you on that: The functionality to modulate the base note to change the key of the ocarina is actually already implemented in the tab formatter, but the demo's GUI doesn't give the user access to it yet; also, the Italian fingering base tab hasn't been uploaded, although it's pretty much ready to go. :)

@Endalion - Actually it looks like I misunderstood you. I thought you were referring to Pacchioni with the split right little finger.

The 10-hole fingering currently up is on an asian body, but from what I see looking back over it is that it seems to be Donati 10-hole fingering. What 10-hole style did I miss? (I primarily play English fingering, so I need some direction here. :) )

Asian Fingering: Right pinky is lifted last
Italian/European Fingering: Right thumb is lifted last.

Otherwise the same as asian, but these two switch places.

See 10-hole transverse(European) from Robert Hickman's fingering chart generator as reference http://occhart.robehickman.com/chartgen/index

You mean left pinky? All examples of European ocarinas I can find (Italian, Austrian, Bavarian), even vintage ones, seem to lift the left pinky last to keep balance.

This looks really promising. Kudos for the "Out of Range" overlays, I don't think I've seen that before. Great Job. I'm looking forward to see the evolution of this. Looks like you've got a pretty detailed plan.

OcSteve wrote:Inspired by our very own Robert Hickman's PHP dabblings, as someone who is technically and programmatically inclined myself, I'm currently coding a fingering chart, tabs generator and practice system that I'll be putting up somewhere on the web some time in the future.

However, to kick it up a notch, I've decided to support "non-standard" and multi-chambered (with harmony) ocarinas as well.

The currently implemented fingering systems for tabs are:
  • 4 Hole Pendant
  • 5 Hole Pendant
  • 6 Hole Pendant
  • STL Max Range Pendant
  • STL Max Range Double Pendant
  • 10 Hole Transverse
  • 12 Hole Japanese Transverse
  • 12 Hole Taiwanese Transverse
What are currently in the queue include (in no particular order):
  • 6 Hole Pendant w/sub hole
  • STL Compact Double
  • Double & Triple Taiwanese Transverse
  • Double & Triple Japanese Transverse
  • 11 Hole Pacchioni, Double, Triple, & Quadruple Transverse
  • STL Max Range Double & Triple Bass
  • Songbird Dragon Tooth, Muse, & OoT (cosmetic mods to the standard 10 Hole and 12 Hole Japanese tabs :-) )
  • 7-hole OoT
  • Hind's entire non-standard inventory
  • Mountain Ocarina's entire inventory
In the next few weeks I should have an ABC-notation-to-tabs generator ready to fiddle with (or "oc" with...?) that'll support harmony tabbing "out of the box" (er.. webpage...?).

With the harmony support it's also a bit fun, as the current tab generator can be told to favor one chamber over another in certain contexts, and in the future will also be able to calculate optimal (i.e. the easiest) alternate fingerings when necessary.

I also hope to have some sort of practice system put together with Popcorn.js or some similar library to teach tabs as well as sheet music.

It's an ambitious undertaking, and I'm only working on it a little at a time so... stay tuned. :D
What a wonderful idea! The students in my club would really benefit from access to programs like that. Thank you.

Nope. On Italian ocarinas the highest notes are lift left thumb, left pinkie, then right thumb.
The signature you have requested does not exist.
