MusicTXT: A Text-based Interface for Music Notation


For most music notation software, due to the complex nature of modern staff notation, extra mouse interactions and manual efforts are highly demanded. According to this observation, we propose MusicTXT, a plain textbased user interface for music notation that is almost mouse interaction-free. Based on our easy-to-learn online user interface, users are able to notate music by typing a paragraph of numbers and alphabets as plain text. We validated the music notation efficiency of our interface by comparing it with another popular online software-NoteFlight. According to statistical analysis, we prove there is a significant improvement in music notation efficiency by using MusicTXT.
