All Time Signature Templates for Notepad Users
« on: September 29, 2015, 03:55:24 AM »

There has been some discussion recently regarding the template. Namely, Notepad users cannot open the .ftm file format, nor are they able to adjust the time signature. Therefore, I have created a Dropbox folder with multiple different time signature combinations that should cover almost any scenario. The list will be below; let me know if I should add more. Also, I think this one could probably use a sticky.

Note: Notepad users are able to change the key signature; make sure you change it before you begin inputting notes, otherwise they will be transposed. Also, if your song changes keys or time signatures, you can request a file with the appropriate changes here.

Folder of Time Signature Templates

Current Folder Includes:

-2/4
-3/4
-4/4
-Common time (4/4)
-4/4 (with Swing)
-5/4
-6/4
-2/2
-Cut time (2/2)
-2/2 (with Swing)
-3/8
-6/8
-9/8
-12/8

Now, if you've got your time signature down, but you need a proper tempo marking for said time signature, check out this thread! Thanks to Th3Gavst3r for providing additional help for Notepad users!



Olimar12345: Editing the OP to include this post:

I've upgraded this thread so that solo piano template files include all of the tempo markings from Th3Gavst3r's thread. I also threw in the following useful expressions:

-con pedale
-senza pedale
-Swing 8s
-Jazz 8s
-Straight 8s
-Swing 16s
-Straight 16s

Additionally, I have created these templates for both types of piano duet: four hands and two pianos.

[Folder of Time Signature Templates No. 2 (Solo Piano)] [Direct Download ALL as .Zip]
[Folder of Time Signature Templates No. 2 (Four Hands)] [Direct Download ALL as .Zip]
[Folder of Time Signature Templates No. 2 (Two Pianos)] [Direct Download ALL as .Zip]

All folders include the following time signature templates:

-2/4
-3/4
-4/4
-Common time (4/4)
-4/4 (with Swing)
-5/4
-6/4
-2/2
-Cut time (2/2)
-Cut time (2/2) (with Swing)
-3/8
-6/8
-9/8
-12/8

ALSO, if you have already started arranging and need to add a tempo mark to your already-created file, you can load [this library] to your file via the File menu and it will add all 900 of Th3Gavst3r's tempo markings to your file.

Maybe this could be here? http://forum.ninsheetmusic.org/index.php?board=5.0
Absolutely. I wasn't 100% sure where to put it. I just put it here because it is closer to the original template file. But if you think that's the better place, you can move it.
