Re: Identifying a preferred MusicXML sound

2) What if you have multiple sound IDs that map onto a single MusicXML ID? That can be easily solved with sub-elements. "strings.violin" would spread into "strings.violin.stradivari1" "strings.violin.stradivari2" "strings.violin.guaneri" etc. I think we should define in MusicXML 3.0 that in princip...

Re: Sound design rationale: top-level categories

Dear Michael, you defined the following goals for the taxonomy: - group similar sounds together and - reflect instrument categories as commonly understood by musicians. - score exchange between different software applications, better than General Midi. The last goal is obtained by any taxonomy. The ...

Re: XML taxonomy: Flat or hierarchical? Enumerations or strings?

Hi Michael, I agree with your summary and proposed consensus. I would just state more precisely the meaning of flat/hierarchical: 1) flat XML representation 2) string, not enumeration 3) the string should have a built-in hierarchy like "wind.wood.doublereed.guanzi" rather than just "guanzi". Concern...

Re: Sibelius Standard SoundWorld (S3W) as a possible means of describing sounds in MusicXML 3.0

Hi Joe, it seem that the capella genericSound IDs would exactly meet your wishes. See http://lemmel.at/captune-VST-config.pdf page 5ff. It firstly defines the instrument and then, optionally, the articulations. (In capella we don't substitute articulation sounds, but only instruments.) I think this ...

Re: XML taxonomy: Flat or hierarchical? Enumerations or strings?

Dear Michael and List, I would strongly prefer a single string (capella or Sibelius like) with a built in hierarchy. > <score-instrument> > <instrument-name>Eb Clarinet</instrument-name> > <instrument-sound>wind.clarinets.eb</instrument-sound> > <solo/> > </score-instrument> The possibility of sound...

Re: Instrument taxonomy structure - a first proposal

Hello Michael and everybody, I didn't follow the whole discussion, I just want to draw your attention to the taxonomy I developed for capella-software a year ago. The purpose of our capella genericSound IDs is to find substitute sounds for playback if a certain sound is not available. First I looked...
