At the Sounding Edge: Music Notation Software for Linux, Part 3

Filed under
HowTos

In this month's stop on our tour of Linux music notation programs, we look at the MusiXTeX music typesetting software. MusiXTeX was created by Daniel Taupin, Ross Mitchell and Andreas Egler. MusiXTeX currently is maintained by Christian Mondrup and other volunteers.

MusiXTeX is a set of macros and fonts that provide extensions for music publication with the TeX typesetting software. TeX is a powerful text processing system for UNIX/Linux, originally designed for high-quality typesetting of scientific and engineering articles and books. It puts special emphasis on representing the symbols and graphics found in algebraic equations and other mathematics formulae. This special graphics capability made TeX a natural choice for a high-quality typesetting system for music.

However, the Ubuntu platform has moved forward in leaps and bounds in recent years when it comes to the official availability of popular apps and we are confident that this trend will continue.
