DrumBurp v0.7 out now – Lilypond export

DrumBurp v0.7 is now available to download! The major feature in the new version is the ability to export to Lilypond format to create beautiful sheet music.

DrumBurp v0.7 introduces a major new feature, the ability to export Lilypond input files. Lilypond is an open source music engraving package; running the DrumBurp-created files through it creates spectacular sheet music from your DrumBurp scores. For example, this:

Lilypond export: before

becomes this:

Lilypond export: after

Pretty sweet, huh? Now you have the speed and ease of use of DrumBurp combined with the great output of Lilypond.

This has been quite a long time in the works, there have been a few small but tough problems that prevented me getting this out earlier.: triplets were a massive pain to get working. As it is, this is still quite a new feature, I expect to make more improvements to it as time goes on.

There were also a few other minor changes:

  • I fixed a (really stupid) bug that stopped the current measure highlight being displayed during MIDI playback.
  • Added a display of the total number of measures, staffs, and pages in the score.
  • Added a link to the online manual from the help toolbar.

Let me know how you get on!
