Request about JianPu
Dear contributors of MuseScore,
MuseScore has become the NO.1 open source music notation software around the world. As far as I know, it has growing users here in China.
And another thing is users in China need a good JianPu software for many years, and there are some,.... but not very well.
Their requirements including but not limited to:
- Can edit, add, modify, remove in WYSIWYG way.
- Can playback the score, better see notes highlighting during playback.
- Can import/export midi/MusicXML....... files.
- Can display JianPu as well as Western Music Score.
No doubt, only MuseScore has the potential.
And there is already tablature feature in the trunk, I think JianPu is something similar, display both JianPu and Western Music Staff together for same staff.
And it's claimed that MusicXML 3.0 will add JianPu.
I translated a chapter about JianPu notation of a chinese book, attached below. I think it's more than how to make the notation, rather than how to implement a JianPu layout algrithm, but this is the only material I have. I may made a lot of mistakes in the translation, and this document is not yet complete. With this and wikipedia page, now we have some reference.
Anyway let's start to talk about JianPu.
Any comment is welcome.
