Adrian has updated the specification and examples for time signatures following the recent discussions about how to replace the originally specified microsyntax.
The main topic of discussion in today’s meeting was the replacement of the note value microsyntax. After considering a number of different factors, we decided on the creation of a new duration key for the event object that will itself hold a new object with two key-value pairs: base will use a string-based enumeration, heavily based on the equivalent note-type value in MusicXML, to specify the notehead duration; and dots will use an integer to represent the number of rhythm/augmentation dots on the note. dots can be omitted if the value is 0.
Following the conclusion reached in today’s meeting, Adrian will update the MNX specification and example documents to include these changes.
The next meeting will be in two weeks, on Thursday 3 August 2023.
