Score Module Development

Score Module Development

As we prepare for the addition of a score object in the AR space, we’re working on two means of creating and working with musical notation.

  1. a graphical editor for simple note entry directly within Unity
  2. a parser for the musicXML format

The commonly used music notation software, Sibelius, can export a piano score in a variety of formats. The most usable one for our purposes is musicXML.

musicXML is a simple markup language for which Phan has written a parser to import into Unity to display the notes, rests, bar lines, etc. and use them as objects in the application.

We’ll get into this more as we discuss and develop the lesson builder.
