More Information

Bongos may be used to depict X-head notes in a line, in the manner used by some drummers. It may also be useful for showing the rhythm of spoken words. MusiSync has a few X-head notes, but Bongos contains a more complete system. There are now two fonts: Bongos has stems up, and Bongos2 has stems down. They may be used alone or incombination.

Duration varies from whole to 1/16, with or without dots. Notes may be beamed or tripled. There is a percussion clef, measure bar, repeats, and system close. The notes may be shown with or without a horizontal connecting line.

Description

Bongos and Bongos 2 differ in the vertical placement of symbols relative to the (real or imaginary) horizontal line that connects X-heads. <br> <br>This font may be used like any True Type font in a word processor. It may be useful for illustrating a line of X-head musical notation, of the kind sometimes used by drummers. It may also be useful for showing the rhythm of spoken words. <br> <br>Lowercase characters do not contain a horizontal line linking them. Uppercase characters are linked by a horizontal line. <br> <br>Use the font with a character map that magnifies the symbols, so you can see what you are doing. Sometimes, part of a symbol (such as beams or triplets notation) may not be readily visible when inspecting a character. <br> <br>The font includes whole through sixteenth notes and rests. Dotted notes are available. Eighth and sixteenth notes may be beamed, including rests and dots. There is a percussion clef, measure bar, repeats, and system close. <br> <br>Triplets may also be constructed. <br> <br>There is not much logic between keyboard strokes and musical symbols. Use a character map to hunt for what you need.
