Notation examples

Chromatic scale from c' to c''

copyright by

Each chromatic note always retains the same position on the staff in every octave. A small numeral after the new Chronota clef "N" marks respective octave. As a result it is possible to avoid large numbers ov ledger lines.


Semitone and whole tone steps are recognizable in Chronota at first glance - a big advantage over traditional notation. The notes of scale look the same in every octave. Whether major, minor or whole tone scales: all tone steps are easily recognizable using Chronota.


The following example shows the pitch ranges using a piano keyboard:

- each octave has its own octave nme (small numerals)

- each note retains the same position in every octaves

The familar look of the score stays the same, only the notes are assigned a new place on the stave. This facilitates the orientation, and it is relatively easy to get used so. Chronota is easy to read, write and play with a little practice.
