updated 02:20 pm EDT, Wed June 20, 2007

MusicXML 2.0

Recordare has released version 2.0 of its MusicXMLT sheet music file format, commonly used in sheet music preparation and publishing. The new version adds a compressed format that makes MusicXML files about 20 times smaller than before (the files have traditionally been very large), similar in size to the corresponding MIDI files. The compressed format also allows multimedia content to be distributed with digital sheet music. The MusicXML format was originally designed as an interchange format between different music notation applications running on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux systems. The format is available for use under a royalty-free license. It is supported by more than 75 applications including, Finale, Sibelius, SharpEye Music Reader and more. A definition of the spec, tutorial and MusicXML samples are available from this download page.
