Any MAX PATCH for WRITING Sheet music?

Dec 12 2012 | 11:24 pm

Hello everybody,

Have you ever seen Finale Software or Garage band with midi instruments?

I would like to know if there is a way to realize it on Max.

I’m working on a project by using importing JAVA (MXJ) classes on Max for chord, patterns and scales recognizers.
I’m using the principle behind Markov Variable Lenght Algorythm.
What i miss is a good rythm rules recognition.

Any suggestions?

you might want to take a look at this.

Under the Max/MSP tab, it has example for what i think you might want…
I may be off..

@ fustav: You have to download and install 2 additional fonts required by note~ (see installation notes).

Thank you, I’ve added the fonts and now it works properly :)

There’s also Bach

I’m looking at a few of these options now too. All of these seem super robust and heavily lifting.

I think I’m learning towards Bach at the moment, but haven’t installed or messed with any of them yet. For my purposes all I really need is the ability to show a bit of notation on screen (that can change dynamically).
