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..
