[SOLVED] Automatic opening XML files in Musescore (or Sibelius, etc)

Recommended Posts

Hi Julio,


For me it works like this:

(defun last-score-to-musescore ()
  (compile-score *last-score* :output :musicxml :file "temp-last-score")
  (musicxml-to-editor "temp-last-score" :application "/Applications/MuseScore.app"))


in the extensions folder and then calling:



It was shown in the forum long time ago, you can do a research..

I´d like to know if this is possible with PS function output and also with the last snippet.


Here is the old post (it was before the advent of the marvellous preview score.


The ideal situation for me would be call musescore to open the last score, PS or snippet generated.


Ole, I got this error, doing your instructions


compile-score #<score preview>
#<external-process (/usr/bin/open -a /Applications/MuseScore.app ...)[522] (exited : 1) #x3020050EBABD>


I put the code you mentioned in extensions folder in the Source Code.lisp file, like this:


(defparameter *snippet-clef-default* :treble-down8)

(defun last-score-to-musescore ()
  (compile-score *last-score* :output :musicxml :file "temp-last-score")
  (musicxml-to-editor "temp-last-score" :application "/Applications/MuseScore.app"))

Are you sure that your MuseScore lives in /Applications and is named 'MuseScore' and not 'Musescore 3' (or 'MuseScore 2' as your screenshot suggests)?

Maybe you need to change :






Don't know what you are after exactly, but when I evaluate ps (with the numerical enter key) and  then call (last-score-to-musescore), ms opens that last evaluated score (btw you can look at the score by using the (rightclick-) context menu/ PPrint last Score, then it displays in the listener..)
