Have you thought about putting your project up on github and seeing if anyone is interested in collaborating?oktophonie wrote: ↑19 Jan 2021, 12:24Having written quite a few tools for manipulating SCORE files, and therefore being pretty familiar with a lot of the internal workings, I did make a start on a sort of desktop clone of it which at least got as far as opening up files and being able to display them in a window (at least partly - to implement the translation of all the parameter types and values into graphics would be a huge job, but I made a start on the basics), but that was rather too much work to keep up purely as a hobby, so I abandoned it. I attach a screenshot for the curious.
There may be mileage in taking SCORE's algorithms and using them in a modern software product that takes advantage of all the advances in computational power and capabilities of modern hardware and practices. (Now with Curves™ )
But realistically, for generations of musicians raised on GUI interfaces (and increasingly now on touchscreen devices), having to learn a big load of code is a massive barrier to entry. Whatever form 'Son of SCORE' takes, it would have to be GUI.
There's also the fact that the notation app market is massively over-saturated. Only the other day, we had posts from someone starting their own notation software, despite two large open source projects: Lilypond and MuseScore, and several others in various states; then there's around 20 small commercial projects -- all of which are vying for position behind Dorico, Finale and Sibelius.
