How to extract "Beat" information question
I need to extract the beat information in the same format that is presented on the bottom score information bar. The information is decimal delimited. See the attached picture. I understand this can be derived programmatically though the use of a plugin, however it is not desirable to look at surrounding notes and durations to derive it.
The XML and musicXML exports could give me the measure and notes duration information to allow me to sync lyrics with an external program.
The main issue is that if there are rests surrounding notes in a measure, you can't derive the beat it falls on unless analyzing all the notes and rests. It would be much simpler if I could extract just the the beat information (tagged with the note_Id) from the same source that the score view shows it.
Any help or ideas would be appreciated. I love MuseScore!
