Music xml import, convert to Score?

Recommended Posts

I have converted many of my scores made in Notion to music xml in order to display them in the Assistant..which is very nice indeed.


I'm wondering if I can convert those xml scores to an Opusmodus score direct or do I have to re-import them as midi? I see I can go the other way..xml to Notion, but cannot find how to go this way or if it's possible.

Heavy pressure by Monsieur Boussuge !😂😂😂

Indeed, really important and time saver for the composer.

This would let us  import stuff, maintaining the attributtes (dynamics, markings) of existing scores.

All the best !

I would also welcome this greatly, but I also understand that it might be tricky to realise when implemented from scratch, as MusicXML is a large standard.


This project could become much much smaller when using some library that already has some  good MusicXML support. For example, one could use the pretty mature MusicXML import of music21 (http://web.mit.edu/music21/) and then use music21 + Python to generate OMN (e.g., an event list as output by Opusmodus' single-events). I did something similar once, that is rather easy to do and not such a big project. Python libraries can be called from Common Lisp using py4cl (https://github.com/bendudson/py4cl/). I tested py4cl in Opusmodus, it works. For example, all OMN generation could be done in a custom Python module, and py4cl is then used for just calling that. It seems the music21 licence would allow for that (https://github.com/cuthbertLab/music21/blob/master/music21/license.txt).



Any Opusmodus user with a little bit of Python knowledge (which is rather easy for a Lisp programmer, see https://norvig.com/python-lisp.html) and some time could to that in principle
