text indications in MusXML

Author 3 Subscribed Users |

Hi everybody !
Is there any way to import (or export) texts (and thus dynamics, accents or any musical indication that isn’t related to a specific font)
attached to a note or a chord in a MusicXML file ?
If not MusicXML, is that possible with NAP, or with ETF ?

All the best

Hi Mauro

The OM-MusicXML export will include dynamics (VEL-EXTRA) as <dynamics> tags, and texts (“TEXT-EXTRA”) as <lyric>.
Any kind of CHAR-EXTRA will be considereed an <accent>.

Unfortunately I don’t think any of this will be taken into account at importing a MusicXML file.
NAP in/out, will not include any of this either, and ETF is not supported anymore.

Thanks Jean,
I didn’t know it was possible to export such things, great !
Do you think there will be also the possibility to import them, sooner or later ?

Yes. I just don’t know which one of the two :)

Dear Mauro

Yes there are ways. However, i suspect you mean dynamics from om extras ???

if not it is really easy to do to export all dynamics from om to .ly or .xml files. However, there is a slight problem with these if not extras… this means that you will have each note, each chord with a dynamic…
Is this what you need ?

Now if it should be extra-dynamics, well this is great, but should be coordinated with the development of these extra code, since these are not that well implemented in my opinion.
