Livescore and MaxScore Editors
The LiveScore and MaxScore editors are full-blown notation applications built around MaxScore — a Max Java object based on the Java Music Specification Language developed by Nick Didkovsky and Phil Burk.
The MaxScore and LiveScore Editors were designed with microtones in mind, with the capability of representing pitch with virtually unlimited precision. The editor offers notation in various staff styles, quarter-tone, eighth-tone, 12th-tone and 16th-tone and Extended Helmholtz-Ellis JI Pitch notation among them, as well as cent precision playback via MaxScore Sampler or MaxScore Fluidsynth.
LiveScore is a visual notation environment for Live based on MaxScore. It is thoroughly integrated into Live via the API provided by Max and allows the transcription and editing of Live MIDI clips. There are two Live devices.
MaxScore/LiveScore Sampler and MaxScore/LiveScore Fluidsynth are two playback patches/devices that were especially designed for the MaxScore/LiveScore Editor and its microtonal capabilities.
