This forum was originally created to provide a way for our passionate MusicXML users to share ideas, provide valuable input, and find answers from our community. Recordare had started this forum as a mailing list in July 2002. MakeMusic transferred the mailing list archive to the current forum in March 2014.
With the transfer of MusicXML to the World Wide Web Consortium’s Music Notation Community Group
, MakeMusic will no longer be supporting the MusicXML forum as of January 1st, 2017. At that time this forum will be locked.
Most discussion about the MusicXML format itself has already been taking place on the W3C Music Notation Community Group mailing list
and GitHub repository
. If you are not already a member of the Community Group, we encourage you to join and continue the discussion there.
MakeMusic also supports MusicXML in our Finale and SmartMusic products. To discuss how MusicXML works in these products, please use our new Help Center
for Finale and SmartMusic.
We want this large body of valuable information to remain available. While this forum will be locked at the end of the year, it will be archived so that it can still be accessed by those looking for any of the helpful historical information located here.
