Sure why the hell not! I'll give it a go. I wanted to verify I understand this correctly though. I'm going to go with this order:
Gb Major, 4/4, Swing, Triangle, Flute
That's allowed, right? I don't wanna make this badass mofo and have it not count, haha.

Awesome idea btw. This should be fun.

I'm brushing up on my theory to make sure I hit everything I aim for and I came across a question. When you say "five voice chords" do you mean a pentad? Pentachord? I believe 5 voices implies you have five separate instruments which does not make sense to me. Are you peeps referring to a chord made up of five separate tones?

The track I'm working on doesn't have any of this, I was just anally curious.

I looked up "pentad" and that seems accurate.

Basically when I used the word "voice" I meant it in the electronic production way, where every single note that a synth plays is considered a "voice", and a 5-voice chord would just be having a synth play 5 notes at the same time so that there are 5 voices.

But I didn't consider that outside of that kind of context, the term 'voice" makes no sense. Sorry! Hope this clears things up.

Yep, that's column C2. Definitely allowed

It's less complex than you think: a caesura is just a pause or a moment of silence. It's a brief stop in a song where no instruments are playing, so that the listener can have a time to just breathe. Hope that helps :)

Well, yeah, it is probably supposed to be written in 6/8, but the way I wrote it in the sheet music is in 3/4, as such. No BS this is a 100% legit picture. And now you don't believe me, but I promise, this is the legit pic. Anyway, yeah, it might have been easier to write in 6/8

Also, if you put a song in 6/8 somewhere, does that technically count as swing? Cuz that's often called a swing beat, I just wanna know.

Hm, really for swing I would focus more on whether the track feels like swing and less on the technicality of it. Like if you wrote the song with the intention "this track is supposed to have swing", it'd be fine, but if you just wrote a track in whatever compound meter and said "well teeeeeechnically it's swing to some degree so i got it", it might not be. It's kind of about the intent and attempt is what I mean

Did that make any sense? I'm actually not sure if that paragraph actually meant anything

Yeah, that makes sense. In other words, the intent in the context of the song, not the technicality of it. I understand it :)

2 x 3/4 is 6/8, so who cares about detail

Is this okay if I make VIP version for my old track without using original file and just taking inspiration from it?

Well, VIPs are not okay. But if you're just taking inspiration from a track, that's legal - it's just at that point, why call it a VIP?

In any case, as long as all of the composition and whatnot is completely original and not taken from that old track, you're good.

Absolutely! In fact, I encourage it.

Have a section in the melody line where the instrument just plays a ton of 16th notes in a row, without gaps.

Thanks in advance!

No problem man ;) thanks for taking interest!

I judged your tracks and they were pretty good! Please let me know if you update them, which you're allowed to do until the deadline.
