MusiX – So­phis­ti­cated mu­sic type­set­ting

MusiX pro­vides a set of macros, based on the ear­lier Mu­sic, for type­set­ting mu­sic with . To pro­duce op­ti­mal spac­ing, MusiX is a three-pass sys­tem: etex, musixflx, and etex again. (Musixflx is a lua script that is pro­vided in the bun­dle.) The three-pass pro­cess, op­tion­ally fol­lowed by pro­cess­ing for printed out­put, is au­to­mated by the musix­tex wrap­per script.

The pack­age uses its own spe­cialised fonts, which must be avail­able on the sys­tem for musix­tex to run.

This ver­sion of MusiX builds upon work by An­dreas Egler, whose own ver­sion is no longer be­ing de­vel­oped.

The MusiX macros are uni­ver­sally ac­knowl­edged to be chal­leng­ing to use di­rectly: the pmx pre­pro­ces­sor com­piles a sim­pler in­put lan­guage to MusiX macros..
