📕 Description [fr]

Un outil d'édition de partitions de musique multiplateforme, par la Canorus Team.

Canorus est un outil d'édition de partitions de musique multiplateforme. Il prend en charge un nombre illimité de tâches de longueur illimité, la polyphonie, une lecture MIDI des notes, les marques d'accords, les paroles, les filtres d'import / export dans des formats tels que MIDI, MusicXML, ABC Music, MusiXTeX et LilyPond.
Il fait appel à LilyPond (dans le Bottin) pour la conception de documents de haute qualité.

📕 Description [en]

Canorus is a free multi-platform music score editor. It supports an unlimited number and length of staffs, polyphony, a MIDI playback of notes, chord markings, lyrics, import/export filters to formats like MIDI, MusicXML, ABC Music, MusiXTeX and LilyPond.

Canorus is free (libre) software, licensed under GNU GPL.

Canorus could be called the sequel of NoteEdit, a well-known KDE music score editor.
NoteEdit was the child of one man (Dr. Jörg Anders from university in Chemnitz, Germany). Mr. Anders put a great effort into the project and NoteEdit is still one of the most usable music score editors available for Linux. However, in August 2004, Mr. Anders dropped NoteEdit due to some unknown, or rather, poorly-understood reasons. The last officially released version was NoteEdit v2.7.3.

A couple of months later, a new development team was formed and a fresh wind blew. The development team consisted of:

• Reinhard Katzmann (project leader)
• Matevž Jekovec (developer, composer)
• Georg Rudolph (LilyPond meister)
• Leon Vinken (MusicXML meister)

NoteEdit was still maintained and some interesting new features were introduced (GCC4.x compatibility, direct printing support using various engravers, many GUI improvements and new translations). After many of hours spent planning (a move to Qt4 was inevitable) and bug hunting, several problems became apparent. Most notably, NoteEdit had a poorly-designed base, a strong KDE3 dependency, used the TSE3 MIDI library (which worked flawlessly only on Linux), and suffered from a lack of developer documentation. A rewrite was needed, but rather than rewrite a program originally written for the KDE environment only, NoteEdit developers decided to create a new project based on object-oriented programming and Qt4 from the beginning with portability and openess in mind. Canorus was born.

Canorus vision
Canorus 0.1.0 with HarmonyAnalyzer plugin showing unlimited possibilities when using plugins to extend Canorus functionality

Canorus should introduce breakthrough features for a music score editor application like a scripting language support, plugins subsystem (plugins written in Python and Ruby or natively compiled library) - similar to extensions in FireFox, open XML-based score file format, similar score structures to Lilypond in order to achieve better interoperability, source view of the score with a real-time parser, multiple viewports on the same music score and more (experimental features like 3D score view?)!

It should introduce a new way of music representation and a brand new user interface for a composer (unfortunately, most of the serious composers still use pencil&paper).
