The extreme airiness of the high D and E on the first chamber of the MRDP is one of the reasons I don't like it as much as my regular Compact Double pendant. I can compensate for that by playing the low D and E fingering on the second chamber but it annoys me to not have the flexibility to play those notes on both chambers.OcSteve wrote:No problem. I'm glad that others make use of it! As you can probably see from my avatar, I have an inexplicable fondness for my MRDP.
You can also use the tabs generator with it, too, which can tab out harmonies (just use s like in standard ABC notation for chords); however, in the future, I'm going to have the program calculate out using the thumb holes to optimize harmonies so that it keeps your index and middle fingers as closely paired as possible between both chambers.
The current tabs setup also currently favors the higher chamber (i.e. it'll prefer the upper chamber's low C rather than the lower chamber's high C) as the MRDP I have gets a little breathy on high C D and E on the low chamber.
I wonder if sending the wrong chart happens often with STL. I ordered a bunch of their blue plastic 7-hole soprano C pendants, and only one of them came with a chart: A Rupee Pendant chart... that had a typo on one of the fingerings!
That's quite odd. I wonder how one plays A#/Bb with that system.TheZ wrote:That isn't a typo, it's the correct fingering.

Is your 'Plentiful Player of Pendants' a spoof on my old 'Hater of Pendants'?
That would be so close to being sheet music....Endalion wrote:Could you make the converter preserve note length information when converting ABC to tabs? Example graphics for pendant tabs with note length info included is attached.
I was just tinkering with something like that earlier today but I haven't made it live yet. Once it's up (and not horridly buggy) I'll update here. :-)Endalion wrote:Could you make the converter preserve note length information when converting ABC to tabs?
