LibMEI Released

Posted by ahankins on October 25, 2011

As part of our ongoing development of tools necessary to support the OMR of musical materials, we are launching the first beta version of LibMEI, a C++ application library that supports the reading and writing of MEI music notation files.

This launch is timed to coincide with a talk given at the 2011 International Society of Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR) conference in Miami, FL. This talk, titled “The Music Encoding Initiative as a document-encoding framework” describes how MEI can be used to rapidly develop support for new notation encoding systems.

The LibMEI website has more information about this software, including how to get and use software, documentation, and an issue tracker.
