It seems many composers consider extended notation with the computer a daunting task and prefer using graphical approaches for it, like drawing tools in graphical programs or even post-processing scores in graphics programs like Inkscape or Illustrator. However, while this may seem straightforward, I've always felt it's conceptually inferior, mostly because this...

Although I used Lilypond for many years, I didn't know how easy it is to use just intonation and other scales. Worth reading!

That's truly great. Full Well-temepred Clavier Video-scores from book one, separate voices, with links to every prelude and fugue into the 1 hour 46 minute video. Piano: Kimiko Ishizaka
