On Displaying Musical Scores

Use cases

  • Illustrating recordings by attaching a full score (published or equivalent), where the score is not intended to be read closely, rather used as a sort of key-frame reference for navigating the audio.
  • Notation prompt that a user is expected to read (e.g. to play along with, or to check specific notes in a transcription or spectrogram)
  • On-the-fly score display of transcriptions and related annotation layers (score from MIDI)
  • Score editing for correction (making usually small edits to substantial scores)
  • Score editing for annotation (generating small scores from scratch)
