MusicXML to switch between DAWs

Do you have experience with MucisXML for sharing music files between applications?
http://www.musicxml.com/

Have you ever thought of exporting a MusicXML file from your track? Cubase, Logic Pro, Digital Performer and SONAR are some of the programs that are capable of exporting MusicXML. In the notation software of Presonus in combination with Studio One, a MusicXML from any source can be imported and further edited in the DAW, with the score in presonus notion.

So I thought that it will be a totally fascinating experience to import a trance track from lets say cubase and edit it further in Studio One. May be someone wants to gather good karma points and doesn't mind to post some MusicXML codes?

The Newzik app does that. Lets say you have 5 friends in a band and 5 iPads, Newzik allows you to share a setlist with your friends and have a band session where one iPad controls the display of all other four, cool thing when you don't wanna bother about page turn or which song is the next.

I haven't tried it. I got the Notion 5 App from Presonus http://www.presonus.com/products/Notion-5/features , but I still have no Music XML to add. Well, there are some examples of Music XML available in the internet but they are reduimentary instrumental paths.

I did have some conversations about it with others who claimed that this Music XML would not be better than to import midi. According to the theory and the feature description, this statement is wrong but until I find some proper Music XML snippets, I can't prove it wrong experimentally.

The question is, is it possible that there are thousands of plugins, tools, software or libraries available on the net but only few music xml files (if any)? And if this is the case, then why is music xml so much underestimated in the music producer community? After all, this is supposed to be the best possible and the more effective way to collaborate with others?

I've been using the MusicXML format for some time now to switch between GuitarPro, Cubase, Newzik and other programs. It works well as long as the program you use to create the XML file has a good export program inside.

It really depends on the program. For instance, Sibelius, Finale and GuitarPro all have export in XML, but if you open the XML in another program you will find (very few) mistakes. On the other hand, Newzik has to my mind the best xml reader available between all of these.

The musicXML is an open source format which is still in development. Now we are only starting to see the real potential of such a format and it will take some time before it becomes a standard. It would be already great to find musicxml databases on the net, does anyone know some ?

so far i've seen only this type of musicxml databases: http://openmusicscore.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=categories&id=79&Itemid=531

btw look at these notations http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.18/input/regression/musicxml/collated-files#t_g32-_002e_002e_002e-notations-and-articulations

i bet you could express pretty everything with a combination of them.

<note default-y="-5.00" default-x="190.81">
<pitch>
<step>E</step>
<alter>-1</alter>
<octave>5</octave>
</pitch>
<duration>2</duration>
<voice>1</voice>
<type>eighth</type>
<stem>up</stem>
<staff>1</staff>
<beam number="1">begin</beam>
</note>

this is the only notation synthax that is used in the musicxml example sinfonia 2 from bach in the source above (just an example). hundreds of <note></note> separate descriptions.
if i compare it to the possible music xml notation from the second link, i am not able to comprehend why the description of notes in these lines is so desperately poor.

And if you have a look at the MusicXML test files that are available for download as a test suite on http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.18/input/regression/musicxml/collated-files#introduction
you see that it is as easy as that:

you simply add a notations tag within the <note></note> listing, like:

<notations>
<arpeggiate/>
</notations>

anything can be added:
<non-arpeggiate type="top"/>

or
<accidental-mark placement="above">double-sharp</accidental-mark>

or
<articulations>
<staccato/>
</articulations>

or
<ornaments>
<trill-mark/>
</ornaments>


So now we only need an exported MusicXML from cubase, with a little bit more action and suspense, to see how it differentiates from this structure.
