I really didn’t write anything in 2014? That’s pretty terrible.

New Year, new plans - I’ve got three songs, one set of lyrics? I should record them and play open-mics.

On NYE someone asked a throwaway question about collaborative music writing software, which made me go a bit weird.

So MusHub then. My MVP was to allow one person to write a score and that to get sent to other clients who can play it. This is now done.

Next steps.

##Users##

  1. Accounts
  2. Accounts have scores
  3. Accounts can invite other accounts to view / edit scores
  4. Client names.

##Persistence##

  1. Scores can be exported to Midi files. Rendered to ogg?
  2. Changes to scores are recorded through VCS, changes attached to a user.
  3. Time can be rewinded.
  4. Changes are staged before commit.

##Performance##

  1. Keyboard to piano mapping
  2. Timing. BPM. All that entails.
  3. This sort of datastructure? :

    { t0: event, t1: event … }

    event: { type: noteOn/noteOff length? Or can I say MIDI.noteOff with 0 delay once t1 passes? }

  4. MIDI.calls seem to have an initial instrument parameter, so maybe that’s how to allow multiple playing scores.
  5. Click to create notes? Not the keyboard / font mapping.
  6. Ableton-esque timed layout (to start a score at 4 bars in say).
  7. Chords.
