Re: More Lilypond bugginess

Hi all, This is an interesting and important conversation. I'd like to respond to it from the perspective of a vendor whose score-writing application, Noteflight, depends strongly on MusicXML. (Let's set aside the need for a specification document for a moment -- as I've said on this list, I strongl...

Re: Note: cue vs. grace

+1 from Noteflight on the orthogonality of grace and cue note attributes. This is how our internal model works. ...joe Hi Andi, I believe we followed the MuseData design here. Since grace notes play back by stealing or making time from the succeeding regular note, if the regular note does not play b...

Re: On test suites

That's a good question, Michael. I wasn't very clear here. I was not referring to the difficulties posed by non-conforming implementations, but to the problems of understanding how the [presumably] conforming ones work in practice, when presented with those very interactions and corner cases that ma...

Re: On test suites

Allow me to provide a bit of real-world notation vendor experience as an addendum to this excellent post. Test suites are wonderful tools, and Reinhold's suite is a particularly valuable piece of work. It forms one component of Noteflight's own MusicXML test suite, along with a large body of other t...

Re: Whose bugs are these?

Hi Michael, I hope my opinions feel more constructive than critical -- Recordare does so many valuable things, it's hard to know where to start. And obviously the situation's improving as regards interchange between vendors who use Dolet or who, like Noteflight, have invested considerable effort in ...

Re: Whose bugs are these?

Michael, As hard as it may be to fund it, I think specifications and reference materials are an investment that will pay off in terms of the utility and longevity of the MusicXML standard. This, ultimately, is what will drive the availability of paying work for those with MusicXML expertise. This wo...

Re: Synchronization

This timestamp sequence is basically the approach we have taken in Noteflight (for an audio synchronization feature that we haven't released yet), and it works fine. The information need not be directly incorporated in the score file; you can think of it as an XML "sidecar" document that relates a s...

Re: Features removed from MusicXML 2.0 in OSF PVG profile

I've looked at the spec (i.e. not just the summary you sent out) and overall I think the proposed changes and omissions make sense. I think the more interesting debates on the feature set are going to come up once we have a proposal on a more generic OSF profile, or set of profiles. I would hope tha...

Re: JAXB and musicxml.xsd?

I would look at the fact that style-text is a complexType with no definition -- it only has an xs:annotation inside, but nothing else. That seems like something that could confuse JAXB. Hi again, Here below is the tiny xsd example (obtained by shrinking a lot the original MusicXml file) that demonst...
