Dear All,


I have a little suggestion for workflow.


1) A simple context menu button (or some way) to open the XML snippet in other software.

Like right-clicking on the snippet and have an option (OS based option) like "open with" (musescore, finale, sibelius, etc)


This could be useful for collecting material for a piece to be edited outside Opusmodus.

I personally use Musescore with my students. It's free, open and runs windows and mac.

I also use Finale for myself.

This simple options could solve the problem of the audition of many different snippets.


2) Another (much more complex) idea would be  when click over each snippet to have a play panel, similar to the

 live coding panel (with play/stop button, tempo, volume, maybe sound and channel assigment , according

 to the number of staves, etc...


This could be handy.

Like this (when clicking over the snipett inside Opusmodus:

the last snippet is also the last score.


By the way you can do a function last score to editor.


I've did one for my usage when working with SIbelius.


I give it here if it can help.

(defun last-score-to-editor ()
(compile-score *last-score* :output :musicxml :file "temp-last-score")
(musicxml-to-editor "temp-last-score"))

First, you need to create a musicxml file from your score:

(compile-score 'file-name :output :musicxml :file "file-name")


(musicxml-to-editor "file-name")

To open the file in Finale:

(musicxml-to-editor "file-name" :application "Finale")


If the application name is not working you can use the identifier keyword with the bundle-identifier.

For example the Sibelius 7.5 version identifier is "com.avid.Sibelius75"

(musicxml-to-editor "file-name" :identifier "com.avid.Sibelius75")

      Dear All, 
      I´m creating some permutations and I´d like to assign a text under each note to make clear the use of certain intervals.
      substitute-map '(T 2M 3M 4J 5J 6M 7M) '(c3 d3 e3 f3 g3 a3 b3) '(c3 d3 e3 f3 g3 c3 c3 c3 g3 c3 c3 d3)) But in the evaluation, I get this:
      (t 2m 3m 4j 5j t t t 5j t t 2m) With lowercase letters, I get 2m , 3m and 5J instead of 2M, 3M and 5J (uppercase names of intervals).
      Since I want it for pedagogical reasons, can it be generated with the corresponding UPPERCASE letters ?
      Thanks in advance.
      All the best,

      Just read this in the Quick Guide:
      "This is where the Assistant, ‘the composer’s assistant’ becomes invaluable. It’s even possible to multitask: audition with the MIDI Player while adding new sub panes and expand the viewing area, and then open up an Internet link."
      Is this possible!? If so, how exactly to open a web link in the Assistant, please? Thanks!
