Addition to Native Flute fingerings
Clint last edited by Clint
I would like to request an addition to the two Native Flute fingerings for the next firmware release. I had previously made these requests directly though Maxence ... hope it is OK to post these on the forum ...
The updated YML file has tags for 15Mar22 to identify the updates. There are a total of 3 additions which really consist of a single additional fingering. The YML file (containing both Native Flute and Native Flute+ fingerings) is available at: https://Goss.com/yml/naf.sylphyomap.yml
The details are: 15Mar22 CG Add <xxo|xxo (previously unused) to play the perfect fifth above <xxx|xxx. This was suggested by flutemaker Rick Svitzer, to avoid a two-handed fingering "swap" when going between <xxo|xoo and <xxx|ooo when playing in Mode 4. Rick tunes his flutes with this cross-fingerings. This also make sense for Mode 4 fingering in, for example, the descending scale sequence:
<ooo|xoo <xoo|xoo <xxo|xoo <xxo|xxo <xxo|xxx <xxx|xxo <xxx|xxx octave b7 b6 5 4 b3 1

Maxence just forwarded the requests to me, so you can just send me a mail directly.
I've sent you one with a link to a beta to help you check your fingering updates, so that you have my address :).
