  Music Theory / Time / Tempo, Time Signature, Idiom
Time signature, tempo, rhythm section, chord structure, instrumentation, voicings, melodic phrasing, all contribute to the idiom.
Cut common time is used frequently in swing and straight 8ths jazz.
Some modern jazz is written in uneven time where the proportion and order of common and compound beats is left to the pulse and discretion of the composer.

 Time Signature
Unlike the key signature, which is on every staff, the time signature will not appear again in the music unless the meter changes.
The meter of a piece of music is its basic rhythm; the time signature is the symbol that tells you the meter of the piece and how (with what type of note) it is written.
A common exception to this is six eight time, and the other time signatures (for example nine eight and twelve eight) commonly used to write compound meters.

 Time Signatures
In a Time Signature, the top number gives you the number of beats per measure and the bottom number gives you the type of note that takes the beat.
The Time Signature is placed at the begining of the music right after the key signature.
Metre is a measurement of music in time where time is divided into groups of pulses as designated by the top number of a time signature.

 Music Theory / Time / When you change the time signature
When you change the time signature while the music is playing you must indicate how this change will effect the tempo.
Cut common time looks the same as common time, but there are two beats to the bar in cut common time, four beats to the bar in common time.
In compound time a quaver is a third of the beat.

 Time Signature Command   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The time signature is not enforced within the NoteWorthy Composer score editor, so bar lines can be placed at your discretion (although the absence of bar lines makes a printout of the score difficult or impossible to achieve).
The time signature does influence the duration of whole rest measures that appear in the staff.
The time signature must be assigned or added manually in each staff for it to appear.

The time signature is not repeated at the beginning of each new line like the key signature but stays ths same throughout a piece of music, unless a new time signature is written:
If a change of time signature happens to occur at the end of a line, the new time signature is normally written at the end of the line after a bar line and then repeated at the start of the next line;

So, to gain a better understanding of time signatures and how they work I've decided that the best thing to do is to listen to songs which are in unusual time sigs.
I recently went to a show with a friend of mine who is a great drummer, and every piece was in insane time signatures and I just found it so distracting and complicated (as opposed to complex).
I have one that is on a bizarre time scale called Equipoise which is 16 16ths in one bar and 15 in the second.

  RSA Laboratories - 7.7 What is a one-time signature scheme?
A one-time signature scheme allows the signature of only a single message using a given piece of private (and public) information.
By contrast, with conventional signature schemes like RSA (see Question 3.1.1), the same key pair can be used to authenticate multiple documents.
There is a relatively efficient implementation of one-time-like signatures by Merkle called the Merkle Tree Signature Scheme (see Question 3.6.9), which does not require new key pairs for each message.

  Time signature - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The time signature (also known as "meter signature") is a notational device used in Western musical notation to specify how many beats are in each bar and what note value constitutes one beat.
The letter C ("common time") - in actuality, a broken circle - may be used in place of the 4/4 time signature.
In this case the time signatures are an aid to the performers, not an indication of meter.

The time signature is a symbol used in Western musical notation to specify how many beatss of what note value (quaver, crotchet and so on) are in each bar (or measure); in other words, it specifies the meter of the piece.
In writing about time signatures outside from notating music, time signatures are generally written with the top number separated from the bottom by a slash (in the manner of a fraction).
At other times, the choice of bottom note can give subtle hints as to the character of the music: for example, time signatures with a longer base-note (such as 3/2) can be used for pieces in a quick tempo to convey a sense of the time flying by.

Time signatures indicate the length and the way each measure is to be divided.
The time signature, also known as the meter, is written at the beginning of the first system.
In addition to indicating the size and the division of a measure, the time signature can also imply where the pulse is played and how pulses may be grouped.

 Graph-Based One Time Signatures
On the opposite, one-time signature schemes can be built based on arbitrary "one-way" functions, and thus, they increase the degree of freedom in choosing the underlying cryptographic primitive (and decrease the possibility that unforeseen attacks to a particular "one-way" function have devastating effects).
Second, one-time signature schemes are potentially much more efficient than their regular counterparts, and therefore good candidates in settings where fast signature setup, generation or verification is needed.
Given the signature of two different messages (sets), a particular algebraic signature scheme would allow the signature of the message representing the union of these two sets to be computed, without the assistance of the signer.

 UNUSUAL TIME SIGNATURE
Time signatures are placed at the beginning of the music to tell you how many beats there are in a measure and also to tell you which specific note or set of notes receive ONE COUNT.
Therefore, you could start a song out in 4/4 time but half way through the song, you might encounter 1 measure where the time signature changes to 2/4 time and then immediately after that measure the time signature changes back to 4/4 time.
However, in compound time signatures such as 6/8 time and 9/8 time, the bottom note tells you which type of note will make up a sub beat based upon the number 3.

 Dolmetsch Online - Music Theory Online - Time Signatures
Time signatures compounded from smaller units, for example 4/4 next to 3/4, appear in music where the bars alternate, in this case with four and three crotchets in alternate bars.
That a time signature might relate to groups made up of more than one bar has led to the concept of the hypermeasure, where the individual bars in a hypermeasure perform the same rhythmic role as individual notes in a single measure or bar.
However, if the composer wants to change the time signature during the piece, this takes place at the beginning of the bar where the change is required, and the change remains in force until the end of the piece or until a further change is made.

indicates that the time signature be applied to all parts that don't have any other time signature specified at that exact offset.
If the time signature is a compound time signature, the value of this slot is ignored and the beat value is calculated from the denominator (for example, the beat value of a 12/8 signature is 3/8).

 Signature Analysis in Four Slide Machines
Signature analysis is a method of establishing the measurement of a discrete manufacturing process.
If the signature, however, deviates at all from the pre-established boundaries, the tool or cam settings must be different than they were when the job ran last.
Specifically, if the location of the signature "peak" is in the proper location, but the force is significantly lower, then the depth of the slide needs to be adjusted because it is too light.

 Piano Forums at Piano World: time signature - 4 vs. 8, etc.
Time signatures are just a way for us to organize the music in such a way where it's structure is made more readily apparent.
In simple time signatures, the upper number indicates how many beats there are in a bar or measure; the lower number indicates the note value which represents ONE beat (the "beat unit").
Unlike simple time signatures, the upper and lower numbers in compound time signatures do not represent the number of beats per measure and the beat unit.

 Lesson 13: Time Signatures (Meters)
Simply stated, a time signature consists of two numbers, one being written above the other, to indicate how many beats are in each bar.
The time signature tells us two things: a) The '2' tells us that there are 2 beats in every bar, and b) the '4' tells us that each beat is one quarter note long.
From time to time in music you will notice occasions where the weak part of a beat, or the notes between beats, are given special emphasis.
