Viollon tuning and clef (make it possible in musicXML)

Postby Miloslav.Feltl » Wed Nov 25, 2015 8:45 am

Hello dear friends known and unknown,
I am playing viollon music instrument. I would like to be able write it to scores.
I play (at) this instrument in tuning A' Cis' E' A.
It is possible to write it in bass clef or better in contrabass cleff.
Contrabass clef is undrlined bass clef it seems like number two with this symbol :
like this 2: (It is therefor, because contrabass is sounding half time under bass.).
It would be wery nice if I can found this instrument in music programs under Violloncelo)

Thank you very much for your time, I am able to send you another dollar, if you make it able how can I wrote there. Have a nice days and make music well.

I am not sure I quite understand. Is the clef symbol you are requesting available within the SMuFL font layout? The clefs there are at

If I am understanding your request correctly, that sounds like something commonly represented with U+E064, fClef8vb, which is already available in MusicXML 3.0 using the clef-octave-change element.
