Correspondence of chord symbols between text in musescore and exported musicXML
Hello. I've come back here after eight months...
Now I'm trying to make musicXML files with chord symbols in musescore for the purpose of computational harmony analysis as a part of my research project. (on Musescore v2.1, OS X El Capitan (10.11.6))
I'd like to know whether there is a way to edit how a chord symbols is written in musicXML.
The cause of my problem is that some chord symbols have different interpretations.
For example, in my limited knowledge, 'Bdim' has two possibilities: diminished (B, D, F) and diminished-seventh (B, D, F, Ab), depending on the genre or transcriber's decision.
Also, I expect 'C+5' to be an augmented chord (C, E, G#), but it appears as a power chord (C, G) in the exported musicXML from musescore.
Of course, I can distinguish diminished and diminished-seventh by writing 'dim' or 'dim7' respectively. For the 'C+5' case, I can write 'aug' instead of '+5'.
However, if I can change correspondence between chord symbol text in musescore and harmonic information in exported musicXML, for example to interpret '+5' as 'augmented', that will prevent me from making a mistake in transcribing from a paper sheet.
Sorry if my English is not clear.
Or if my understanding on chord symbols is wrong, please correct me.
Honestly, I'm not familiar with lead sheets.
Any advice would be appreciated.
