Algomusic has released MaxScore, a Max object which accepts messages that can create a score, add notes to it, transform them, perform it, save and load the score, as well as export the score to popular formats for professional publishable results.
MaxScore is more than a notation tool. It is an interactive performance object. MaxScore can play back a score and drive your MSP patches through a well-defined instrument interface. Scores can be created and modified in real-time. You can add notes explicitly by specifying durations and pitches, or use Max to generate an arbitrary stream of musical events and use MaxScore’s Transcriber to notate them automatically.
MaxScore currently exports to MusicXML so you can load your scores into Finale and Sibelius. MaxScore also exports to the GNU LilyPond automated engraving system.
While MaxScore is freely available to the public, it requires a JMSL license to run, available at www.algomusic.com.
