Here you find Daniel Taupin's MusicTeX a TeX-based system to typeset music. The package consists of three parts. - the TeX-macros, -font descriptions, -fonts for 300dpi printers, font- definitions and the documentation as zip-file musictex.zip or as com- pressed tar-file musictex-nnn.tar.gz if nnn is the version number. Older versions are available too as zip-files named musictex.nnn, as well as zip-files containing only the differences between older versions named musictex.iii-nnn.zip (for the step from version iii to version nnn). Because some people don't bother about bandwidth and simply use "mget *" I've moved older versions to the directory older-versions and diff-files to the directory diff-files. I hope that it is not neccessary to put zip- and tar-files into different directories to make it not so easy to fetch more than one needs. If you want to use these diff-files you may have to rename them either when ftp'ing them or when unzip'ing them. The diff-files do not contain the dvi-file of the documention, because this may be produced by yourself from the source musicdoc.tex, which is contained if it has been changed. - some examples, compositions and arrangements by Daniel Taupin named either musicexa.zip or musicexa-nnn.tar.gz Version handling and diff-files follow the same rules as for musictex. - fonts, font-metrics, ... for (some) other resolutions than 300 dpi in musicpk.zip or musicpk-nnn.tar.gz The base material (the zip-files) is copied from Daniel Taupins ftp-server at hprib.lps.u-psud.fr. The tar- and diff-files are generated by me. There is a mailing-list for discussions about MusicTeX (and MuTeX). To subscribe to this list send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org contain- ing the word subscribe in the body of the mail. The directory software (only at ftp.gmd.de) points at some software on top of MusicTeX like abc2mtex or midi2tex. Werner.Icking@gmd.de
musictex – Typesetting music with TeX
MusicTeX is a set of macros, that first demonstrated the technique of simultaneous two-dimensional typesetting as applied to music. MusicTeX has its shortcomings (notably in the area of slurs), and is now largely superseded by MusiXTeX.
