Voice Obj: triplets in a 11/8 bar


I guess found a little bug:

the tree input (? (((11 8) (4 (4 (1 2)) 3)))) in VOICE-obj is in OM.6.16 ok.

but in OM-# different (wrong):

the triplet should contain a quarter and half note…


I took a closer look into this topic (rhythmic notation)…
Its not a bug when you allow increasing proportions like 11:12 instead of 11:6 or in my example 3:4 instead of 3:2:


For me the first bar (a) would be the correct notation. But maybe the are some reasons to make it in a different way (to the standard notation).

If you think in a 11/8 bar, it would be a possible choice to use 3:4 (instead of 3:2).

Here is another example to make it clearer:

(? (((5 8) ((1 (1 1 1)) (4 (1 1 1))))))

Shows up in OM-#:

for comparison (what I would prefer):

Thanks for these reports. Will look into it !
