MuseScore for AmigaOS4 is a reality:

Very nice, how about the speed operation in general ?

...and no sound. :-/

I need to fix a few things and then get someone to test on X1000. I hope it is going to be usable in that kind of setting, otherwise I spent my whole weekend in vain...

Also, this is probably a pretty good marker of how other more complex Qt apps (say, Calligra) is going to perform.

Cool.

Looking at wikipedia it supports lilypond

Did you actually port lilypond as part of that?

@broadblues

I don't know about lilypond (and no I didn't port it).

By the way, after a few more tests, it seems a lot more usable when limiting the amount of notes needing to be rendered at all times. Eg. for small projects it is indeed very usable on a 667Mhz SAM.

lilypond is *the* best notation program I ever used.

The catch is it's a 'programming language' that generates beuatiful music scores, thus not exactly enduser friendly

It's on my todo list so I was hopeful that you'd inadvertantly done it for me

Rally nice, it rally shows how useful QT can be, I guess some people will also have some use for this application.

A weekend spent with your Amiga ... how can that be in vain?

But seriously: Great news, I'm looking forward to trying it out. I'va tried the Linux version on my Debian installation on the X1000, and it felt quite nice, but I have only scratched the surface a bit, not made anything more involved.

I remember at one point giving up (temporarily) because I couldn't work out how to create a two-staff, four part score, like often used for barbershop quartets, or choral hymns. But I guess I'll work it out some day .

Best regards,

Niels

IIRC, it is used as a sort of backend to MuseScore and/or Denemo, another Linux scoring program, so that the user doesn't have to deal with the actual LilyPond language - almost like a Postscript printer driver (except not Postscript and on a higher abstraction level, of course)? And yes, I also heard lots of praise for it.

Hopefully having MuseScore ported can urge you to move LilyPond up on your todo list?

Best regards,

Niels

Yes, although never got on with any of the GUI's I tried and so learnt to do it by hand,

Once you've got it, it's really powerful createing multipart scores whole orchestration even is not that difficult.

It's needs scheme though. So it woud be a two stage port at least

You are absolutely right, sorry I misspoke
(EDIT: Well acually I spent most of my weekend in Ubuntu, since I was cross compiling... :-/)

I can't help you there, but I know it is possible, since the demo example uses more than one part in a single staff.
