I am pleased to announce that TwinNote has been redesigned and the website has been updated to reflect the new and improved version of it. Take a look around the site to check it out!
The old version of TwinNote has now been re-named
(which used to be its name before June of 2009)
“Black-Oval Twinline”. You can find it documented
the Music Notation Project’s site.
In a future post I will go into more detail on the thinking
and motivation behind this new version of TwinNote. But in a
nutshell, intervals have a more consistent appearance and are clearer in
the new TwinNote than in
the old TwinNote
Black-Oval Twinline. This is because it has a stronger and
6-6 pitch pattern.
So TwinNote now offers the benefits of a vertically compact staff (like Twinline) without having to compromise the benefits of having a clear 6-6 pitch pattern, benefits like clarity and consistency in interval appearance!

Update: “White-Triangle Twinline” was renamed “Black-Oval Twinline” in December 2010 to better distinguish it from Tom Reed’s “Twinline” (which also has white triangles).
