Quarter tones

Hey guys! So I'm composing an Egyptiany sounding piece, and I want to use one of their original scales (maqam), however, they use quarter tones (notes halfway between a semitone). Is there a way to use them in the symphony pro app? Thanks!

    Hi Mitch, SP currently doesn't offer pitch divisions in less than one semitone, although it's a planned feature. There are other programs out there that you can use for the time being to add these symbols on projects exported from SP using MusicXML, and they include MuseScore and Finale. Let us know is you need help with anything else.
  • I see! Thanks for letting me know!
