Thanks jaberwocky6669 :)

You notate a rest by excluding the note name eg any of the following symbols on their own.

o + ; - ~ ?

You can concatenate note durations by removing the spaces between them eg o+ or use dots and ties which is more standard.

Ok cool, thanks.

Here is the bass clef of the first bar of Bach's C major prelude from the well tempered clavier: ";=125 <pno> o'C -'E. _ o'E. o'C -'E. _ o'E."

What is wrong here?

Keep all the rhythmic values on the left of the note name, including dots.

";=125 <pno> o'C -.'E _ o.'E o'C -.'E _ o.'E"

Notes have two elements. o...'C#'

o...  = duration

'C#' = pitch

Duration is inherited from the previous note, so you don't always have to write the rhythm.

K, here is my crappy attempt.  This is the first two bars of the C Major Prelude fropm Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier.

Global $source =     ";=100 <pno> - ~G' C' E' G' C' E - ~G' C' E' G' C' E'|- ~G' C' E' G' C' E' - ~G' C' E' G' C' E'|" & @CRLF & _
                                    ";=100 <pno> o'C .E_;.E oC .E_;.E|o'C .E_;.E oC .E_;.E"

I will make some tutorials. I think that will be easier than trying to explain everything at once. If you already know how to read and write music, it should not be too difficult to figure it out. Writing separate parts is quite advanced though. There are one or two things you can do which don't exist in a conventional score. For example triplets are enclosed in round brackets and you can wrap the brackets around as many bars as you like. Tuplets do not normally cross bar lines. :rolleyes:

You chose a great tune BTW. I found the scores to the whole work in an Oxfam shop. :)

One more thing - octave range is also an inherited feature so the final 'B in the Bach example above can lose the single quote.

Here's the rest of the prelude written as it appears in my Konemann Music Urtext edition of Das Wohltemperierte Klavier. What a fitting tune to first test mus++. Thanks again Jaberwocky6669 for the inspiration - Bach is truly great, I have it playing in a while loop. :D

One thing you might try is changing the instruments. I changed the instruments from <hpsd> to the following selection: <vib> <vc> <db> <vib> <vib> and I may have discovered a solution to a small issue with interfering voices.. It seems to work without any voice interference, which gives me an idea. :idea:

      zPlayer is the name I used when I introduced the early version of this palyer in my blog back in early 2009 and, therefore, has nothing to do with the mobile media player of the same name which started marketing in 2015.
      After I retired from active duty in 2002 I spent much time listening to music. First I started with CD's and LP's, then quickly moved on to mp3 files. I converted many of my CD's to mp3 and I collected many more from various sources which were freely available at the time. As the number of my mp3 files grew, I put them in folders according to their genres and my favorite classifications. I mainly used Windows Media Player to listen to them and I slowly began to dislike wmp because it had massive user interface while I just wanted to listen to music in the background while I was doing other work in the foreground, hopping between folders from time to time. It was the time I was beginning to learn AutoIt and I thought I should make my own player with AutoIt. Coming from a sales career with no experience in programming, it was not an easy task. Somehow, after about 2 years of learning and trying, I had my own audio player which worked with only hotkeys without any graphical interface. I gave it to some of my friends who were not as computer-savvy as I. They liked it but definitely wanted something to clcik with mouse. So I came up with very rude gui which took a form similar to what it is now.
      The attached source files include one au3 file, one icon file and 14 jpg files. The jpg files are used for drawing a graphical player and are fileinstalled in @DocumentsCommonDir folder. This player uses WMPlayer.OCX as its engine and supports all audio file formats supported by wmp and additional codecs installed. I would like to thank @Bilgus for kind answers to my questions and would appreciate it if anyone could review the code and give me any suggestion. This player works for me, but I don't know whether the code is presentable as an example. I am posting this here with a hope to learn much from AutoIt community.

      To change the language used by Windows GUI and the browser (Chrome in my case), the only method I've found that works is to go to Settings > Time & Language > Language > Preferred Language, switch the default from English to Spanish, sign out, and then upon signing in everything will be in Spanish as expected.
      Besides automating the above process is there a more direct way to change Windows' settings using AutoIt?
