Title
(EN) DATA EXCHANGE FOR MUSIC CREATION APPLICATIONS
Abstract
(EN)

An operator of a digital audio workstation (DAW) application is able to assign individual tracks of a DAW session for export to specific players within a musical score of a scorewriter application. The DAW operator associates each track with a player identifier, which is retained in association with an interoperable format file generated by the export process. When the scorewriter imports such a file, it extracts the player identifier and uses it to map the track to a scored instrument. The mapping may also depend on a scorewriter arrangement of players for the instruments. The DAW operator may assign multiple tracks representing a given instrument played with different techniques to a single instrument part in a score. The playing techniques for the instruments are also associated with the tracks and may be parsed by the scorewriter to annotate the score with the corresponding notations.
