Congratulations on the latest release, John! I've added the announcement on our software page, and will be including it in our Recordare update later today.

Thanks, Michael

RE: Invisible tuplets

Hi Phil, Thanks for your suggestion. The <time-modification> element is intended to help in this situation where the tuplets are not notated. In the Schubert Ave Maria example, for instance, they indicate that these are sextuplets vs. the alternatives. It seems this should be enough to make sure tha...

RE: Microtones in MusicXML?

Hi Phil, I suspect there aren't any programs yet that support the use of microtones in the <alter> element, but I would be happy to hear otherwise! MusicXML is intended for common Western music notation, so we do not plan to add features to especially support music that does not divide 12 tones to t...

RE: public domain, SVG and musicXML

Hi Jane, So you want to create a new graphic representation from your MusicXML data? Sort of like a Schenker diagram, but representing the different concepts produced by your model? If that's the case, since you have Finale on your system, you could just use any of Finale's fonts for this. What you ...

RE: Microtones in MusicXML?

Hi Phil, Not a silly question at all! Yes, you can put non-integer values in the <alter> element to represent microtones. I've fixed the comments for the <alter> element for the upcoming MusicXML 0.7 to make this explicit. Quarter-tone accidentals are also available in the <accidental> element. Two ...

RE: backup

Hi Phil, A <backup> doesn't cross measure boundaries, nor does a <forward>. You can have key changes in the middle of a measure, like Brahms does in some music, in which case the key follows from its first occurrence within the measure. But that's a pretty unusual situation and I wouldn't worry abou...

RE: backup

Hi Phil, Sorry for the delay in answering this, but now that I'm back from ISMIR I should be answering e-mail more regularly. We basically check the accuracy of the <voice> elements on a measure by measure basis. This involves making sure that a note in one <voice> never starts before a preceding no...

Re: backup

Hi Phil, For polyphonic piano parts, it would be very difficult to represent then in a notationally correct way without using the <backup> element. Sure, you could represent the right hand and left hand in different <part> elements. But within either the left or right hand, classical piano music typ...

RE: Announce: Initial release of abc2xml and xml2abc

Hi John, Congratulations on this release! I've tested both of these out on a few abc files we have here and things are looking very good. And thanks also for the NoteReport.xsl demonstration, showing the other kinds of things you can do with XSL and MusicXML! Best regards, Michael Good Recordare LLC

What to leave in, what to leave out

Hi John, Maybe not, I'm still a little unclear on just how much playback info should be encoded in the MusicXML file, vs. inferred from the notation. I think it's great if applications can put as much music data into their MusicXML files as is reasonable. In some cases, though, you do want to give t...
