All Tempo Markings and Expressions for Notepad Users
« on: January 29, 2016, 06:10:42 AM »

It's time to speed up the arranging process.

Included are Quarter, Dotted Quarter, and Half Note markings ranging 1-300 bpm.
To use them,
1) Go to the dropbox folder and download the template with the time signature your piece starts with.
2) Open it in Notepad, activate the Expression Tool, and double click on the measure you want to add a tempo marking to.


3) Scroll down through the expressions and select your tempo.

(there are 900 of them you can't miss it)

This method even allows tempo changes in the middle of the piece, which is awesome. Also included are most of the default expressions available in the full version of Finale, such as the Swing! tempo marking, rehearsal marks, extended dynamics options, and more.

Please note: This does not "install" tempo markings into Notepad. The markings will only show up if you are editing one of the template files.

Basically an upgrade to TheMarioPianist's Thread. Good inspiration that.

Because sometimes you want to hold a quarter note for a minute.

So...if i wanted to repair a sheet on the site. I would have to transfer, by hand, all the notes onto the new file, just so I could get the tempo markings?

Unless you're a proud Finale owner, I believe so yes.
I'm not sure I understand so take what I said with a grain of salt. Or a salt cube. Or a droppee. Or an XL Pepperoni pizza. Mmm pizza..

Yeah, I suppose. Besides the fact that sheet updates are still a hassle with Notepad, this still helps me a lot with arrangements. Thanks again, Th3Gavst3r!
