Re: MakeMusic's claim to own (some part of) every score file you and I create

While I'm sure that the intent is clear, I do think that an MXML file contains source code. I think you're stretching definitions beyond breaking point here. *Source* code is generally accepted as a computer program which is compiled into *object* code, which is then *linked* to produce an executab...

Re: Dolet for Noteworthy?

writes: If MusicXML were designed to represent *semantically* all the information visible in a printed score, it could put the "jails" out of business. However, Michael Good has said a number of times that MusicXML is designed primarily to represent the *appearance* of the score. This is an understa...

Dolet for Sibelius and cross-staff notation?

Hi. I am trying to understand how cross-staff notation is handled in MusicXML. An experiment with Sibelius (5) and Dolet seems to indicate that on Export, cross-staff notation is lost, and therefore on import, the resulting score uses a lot of ledger lines instead of the cross-staff notation used in...

Spanners and document order or time-axis?

Hi. I am still not really sure about spanners like <slur> and alike, especially if there is no continue attribute value involved. I guess my basic question is, do those spanners work in document order, or, on the time-axis. In order words, if <backup> is used in creative ways, does a spanner like a ...

Dolet for Sibelius and <fingering>

Hi. I just got a MusicXML file exported by Dolet for Sibelius 5 which was supposed to contain fingering. It turned out that <direction><words></words></direction> was used to export the numbers. Is this expected behaviour, or is there a way to convince Dolet to use <technical><fingering> instead? If...

double-flat?

Hi. Looking at the valid accidental names in MusicXML XSD, I am confused: <xs:enumeration value="double-sharp"/> <xs:enumeration value="sharp-sharp"/> <xs:enumeration value="flat-flat"/> Is sharp-sharp a synonym for double-sharp? If so, why is there no double-flat? And if not, what is the difference...

Re: How to encode repeat barlines in upbeat music?

"Michael Good" writes: For the back-to-back repeats, you put a backward-repeat barline at the end of one measure, and a forward-repeat barline at the start of another measure. You do indeed want to use two incomplete measures rather than the middle barline. The middle barline is more typically used ...

Re: How to encode repeat barlines in upbeat music?

Hi Michael. "Michael Good" writes: Just encode each measure as it appears on the page. Measure can be partial, so there is no problem to have a pickup measure with one eighth in a 3/4 time signature, or a matching measure with 5 eighths in a 3/4 time signature. I am aware of the partial measure bein...
