Re: Order of number-based elements

Michael, Thanks for the quick response. I acknowledge that missing endpoints for slurs and ties occur and, for better or worse, are essential to MusicXML today. When it comes to other object types like lines and brackets, though, I wonder if single-ended pairs have any reasonable meaning. Is a meani...

Re: Order of number-based elements

Brief erratum amending the algorithm: following a valid match of a prior element in the dictionary, it should be deleted from the dictionary. ...j Hi Michael, > The start-stop definition indeed states that start and stop refer to musical order, not document order. The number-level definition states ...

Re: Order of number-based elements

Hi Michael, The start-stop definition indeed states that start and stop refer to musical order, not document order. The number-level definition states that "The number-level type distinguishes up to six concurrent objects of the same type" and that "Different numbers are needed when t...

Re: Order of number-based elements

Michael, For my benefit would you mind spelling out in plain language the reason why the dual cross-voice slurs are not an acceptable interpretation? I have no doubt that these reasons exist for you, and are somehow dependent on document order, but they aren't clear to me. The schema for the start-s...

Re: Order of number-based elements

Thanks, I did miss that. Yes, during import this does require maintaining history of the slurs in the part to handle the case of cross-staff slurs that lexically stop in one staff before starting in another. Handling this history does not seem particularly complicated, as there are only 6 number-le...

Re: Order of number-based elements

Michael, I think you may have missed part of Dominik's question. Apart from the numbering ambiguity, he is also asking another important question: must implementors handle start/stop pairs that are lexically out of order for a single, particular object. This question doesn't seem to be covered by th...

Re: Clarifying the semantics of <voice>

Myke, I think this idea is a thoughtful compromise -- it introduces exactly the semantic constraint we're looking for without perturbing the overall document structure, or even compatibility. Dear Michael and Joe, Definitely if I were designing MusicXML from scratch today I would definitely go with ...

Re: Clarifying the semantics of <voice>

Michael, Thanks very much for what you said, and for continuing the discussion. I'm interested in continuing to work this issue patiently, and I hope it's plain that I have no immediate expectations of incompatible changes to the standard. I simply think it's a worthwhile topic to examine at this st...

Re: Clarifying the semantics of <voice>

Hi Joe, MusicXML is designed to enable applications that don't have any concept of voice (such as mainly MIDI applications) to still be able to share musical data. As long as the voice element is optional, we will have the voice-related issues that you describe. We should watch out for the MIDI tai...

Re: Clarifying the semantics of <voice>

Hi Michael, At its root, this problem is about more than implementation difficulties and developer confusion -- although those are not insignificant issues, as the list traffic shows. Making developers more comfortable by simplifying and improving the standard does have an intrinsic value, but let's...
