Opusmodus, script your scores
Opusmodus is a new software designed for creating music scores from scripts. It is developed by an international team.
Described as flexible and multifaceted, Opusmodus is available on Mac OS X only. Composers will find numerous tools to create music scores by using expressions (scripting). The notation system is based on the OMN standard, which allows for scripting music from length, pitch, dynamic and articulation values (see this page for full details and examples).
Opusmodus gives you the opportunity to import MIDI files and render the scores in MusicXML format. You can also display in the GUI music scores in PDF format, pictures and a MIDI player is included.
Plus, Opumodus can display graphics of your scores, which can then be saved in PNG or PDF formats and a Live Coding Instrument feature allows for modifying the script on the fly (this feature is already implemented in other software, such as Max/MsP, SuperCollider or Pure Data).
The software also includes a feature library, a corrector, and various tools to help you learn Opumodus.
Opusmodus is a standalone software for Mac OS X 10.8 and later, it is available for 499€ or 299€ if you are a student or teacher. All the details are available at opusmodus.com.
