Re: scope of transpose ?

Hi Peter, > Will the reading application be applying the transposition at points A, B and C? Yes. I think this is a very important point, because it affects how you interpret any mid-measure <attibutes> element. Basically, what you are saying is that the <attributes> element applies to all followin...

Re: Conflicts dealing with chords

Each notation program will already have a way of representing chords with different note-lengths because notation requires it. This doesn't sound right. I think you are using the word "chord" in a different sense from MusicXML. A <chord> element is used in MusicXML only if the notes share...

Re: Container zip file format - clear enough?

Michael, I would change only one thing: You can remove the reference to the ZLIB format and RFC 1950 completely. The ZIP format (described by the appnote) actually stores the files directly using the DEFLATE algorithm (RFC 1951). I think it is OK not to address the other points I brought up before. ...

Re: Credit and image improvements for 2.0

Yes, I think specifying a container compatible with jar is a good idea. I made the same choice a few years ago when I needed a data container. Unfortunately the zip standard (or pseudo-standard if you prefer) is a bit of a mess, so it's worthwhile clarifying a few things. In particular, when you cre...

Re: Problem with chord

The cases I have seen are not as modern as Bartok or Chopin. In violin music, (Vivaldi, I think??) you sometimes see 4-note chords where the top two notes are half notes and the bottom two notes are notated as quarter notes. The composer is thinking of it as a half note chord, but the noteheads of t...

Re: MusicXML to NIFF converter

Hi all, I am a programmer who has created a music program which inputs NIFF files. This works fine in conjunction with output from scanning programs. However, not so well if I wish to use for e.g. Finale to edit a file, since NIFF has no NIFF exporter. Does anyone know of a XML to NIFF translator o...

RE: Chord frames

with additional information. The frame-strings and frame-frets elements give the overall size of the frame in vertical lines (strings) and horizontal spaces (frets). I think this is going to be confusing to guitar players. I am not a guitar player myself, but I thought the word "fret" referred to t...

RE: Beamed Grace Notes

I ran into a related problem a while ago. I have occasionally seen an idiom in violin music which is like a trill on a single note but alternating strings: E (open string), E (on A string), E (open string), E (on A string), etc. This is written with the open string E's with stems up and all the othe...

RE: Several staccatos on one note?

Andi, Aren't you going to have to store the articulations in an array anyway? I thought the order of the articulations was significant, i.e. <staccato/><tenuto/> could/should be displayed differently from <tenuto/><staccato/>. Chris Hello Michael, The DTD is set up this way in order to allow multipl...

Re: Character set

The first syllable is composed of two letters: H followed by udieresis where the latter is coded in two bytes as decimal 195, 188. UTF-8 specifies the udieresis as hex U+00fc hence in one byte, decimal 252. No, you are misunderstanding UTF-8. For example, let's take Unicode U+00fc, or in binary B00...
