NoteMaker

class scoretools.NoteMaker(decrease_durations_monotonically=True, use_messiaen_style_ties=False)

Note-maker.

Makes notes according to pitches and durations.

>>> import abjad

Cycles through pitches when the length of pitches is less than the length of durations:

>>> maker = abjad.NoteMaker()
>>> notes = maker([0], [(1, 16), (1, 8), (1, 8)])
>>> staff = abjad.Staff(notes)
>>> show(staff) 

Cycles through durations when the length of durations is less than the length of pitches:

>>> maker = abjad.NoteMaker()
>>> notes = maker(
...     [0, 2, 4, 5, 7],
...     [(1, 16), (1, 8), (1, 8)],
...     )
>>> staff = abjad.Staff(notes)
>>> show(staff) 

Creates ad hoc tuplets for nonassignable durations:

>>> maker = abjad.NoteMaker()
>>> notes = maker([0], [(1, 16), (1, 12), (1, 8)])
>>> staff = abjad.Staff(notes)
>>> show(staff) 

Set decrease_durations_monotonically=True to express tied values in decreasing duration:

>>> maker = abjad.NoteMaker(
...     decrease_durations_monotonically=True,
...     )
>>> notes = maker([0], [(13, 16)])
>>> staff = abjad.Staff(notes)
>>> show(staff) 

Set decrease_durations_monotonically=False to express tied values in increasing duration:

>>> maker = abjad.NoteMaker(
...     decrease_durations_monotonically=False,
...     )
>>> notes = maker([0], [(13, 16)])
>>> staff = abjad.Staff(notes)
>>> show(staff) 

Uses Messiaen-style ties:

>>> maker = abjad.NoteMaker(use_messiaen_style_ties=True)
>>> notes = maker([0], [(13, 16)])
>>> staff = abjad.Staff(notes)
>>> show(staff) 

Works with pitch segments:

>>> maker = abjad.NoteMaker()
>>> segment = abjad.PitchSegment([-2, -1.5, 6, 7, -1.5, 7])
>>> notes = maker(segment, [(1, 8)])
>>> staff = abjad.Staff(notes)
>>> show(staff) 

Set pitches to a single pitch or a sequence of pitches.

Set durations to a single duration or a list of durations.

Returns selection.
