Uses in Internet Publishing

The musicRAIN 2.0 player (November 2005) uses the MusicXML 1.1 format to create digital sheet-music with formatting faithful to its Finale source. The musicRAIN player runs in a web browser, using Macromedia Flash Player 8. The player allows for transposition for printing and playback. The digital rights management (DRM) provided is similar to what is available in other digital sheet-music sales applications. The MusicXML files are not delivered directly to the end user, however. Thus the capabilities offered by the musicRAIN player give digital sheet-music retailers a solution for Finale files roughly comparable to that provided by the Scorch player for Sibelius files. Project Gutenberg’s sheet-music project has adopted MusicXML for use in its electronic archive of music in the public domain.
