Missing first audible note from abc notation in EasyABC on MacOS Sierra
I never noticed this problem with the OSX Snow Leopard that I used to use on the Mac. Things change of course and one learns to adapt or work around the problem. I haven’t got a true solution but I do have a work-around for the audibly missing first note:
T:250 to Vigo
|: "Bm"fBBA "D"BdFG- | "G"GBdB "A"Acec |1 "Bm"fBBA "D"BdFG- | "G"GABd "A"cBB2 :|2 "Bm"fBBA "D"BdFG- | "G"GAfe "A"dBB2 |]
Note that I’ve added an invisible rest and the code to make the bar invisible with a continuation backslash as a first line above the actual score. This makes the actual score move right a bit on the first line and messes up the positioning of the Part A descriptor but it does allow for the midi to get started on the right note. This is really only useful for those of us that use the midi output of an abc score for practice. Perhaps some of you will find this useful.
