      While the tenuto, staccato, etc... options are useful, having a slider for actual note length within the beat would be very useful. Where a staccato may be too short but a regular quarter note too long for style, this would help to capture the true style of a note.

      The same goes for dynamics where one dynamic throughout the entire note duration may not sound right. Different attack and taper would help if the dynamic level could be controlled over the course of a note. While this would complicate things, it would be incredibly useful.

        When using multiple voices in an orchestral score, there are instruments that are semitones apart, and it causes a lot of dissonance that shouldn't be there. The violins, flutes, clarinet, and trumpet are all tuned differently, and when played together, they sound very dissonant, especially on the extreme ends of the instrument ranges. Even allowing custom tuning between instruments would help on a note-by-note basis.

              You can get this effect by using the overall time signature you need (such as 7/8) and then using beams to show the rhythmic groupings you want.

              BUT it seems like you are talking specifically about how the time signature is displayed. For example, the one you mentioned would look like this:

              3+2+2
              8

              This is not necessarily standard notation, but it is used sometimes. We would consider it but because you can already get the music to sound and read in the way you want, in the most standard way, it may not be a priority for us.

              Please add more detail in the comments so we can understand what is more important to you: the way it’s displayed (we don’t already do this), or the ability to write the rhythms you want (we do already do this).

              Thanks!
