This plugin simulates L.V (laisser vibrer/let vibrate) ties by turning a note into a triplet with 2/3 of the duration tied to the remaining 1/3. The final note and triplet bracket are hidden, so it appears as if the note original duration is tied to nothing.

This automates a manual process described by Jay Vilnai.

The plugin normally skips tied notes, but there is an option to process only notes with a dangling tie, replacing such notes with a tied triplet.

Updated 1 May 2018 to allow it to hide notes correctly when run in a part.

Updated 15 March 2020. Articulations from the original note/chord are now transferred to the first new note/chord.
