Experience with HackMD

HackMD is an extremely convenient editing platform The most common way for music producers to edit scores is to use commercial score software. The completed score must have specific software to open or save as .pdf to read, after I knew HackMD supported ABC Notation, I had a new option. When I want to edit, I use ABC Notation to write music, and share music scores through HackMD directly.

My article is mainly introduce the use of ABC Notation and recommend that if you want to play with the ABC notation, using HackMD is a convenient platform.

currently music producers make scores, they still mainly use mainstream paid software packages (such as Sibelius). Hope my experience of HackMD can that more people try this different way to create music.

在 HackMD 上面使用 Markdown 寫譜真是快速輕量又方便 一般製作音樂的人在編輯樂譜時,最常見的方式是使用商用樂譜軟體 因此打完的譜必須要有特定的軟體才能打開或是另存成.pdf才能閱讀 hackmd支援有ABC Notation語法後,我有了新的選擇,當我想要打譜時,可以直接在線上使用 ABC Notation 寫譜,並且透過網址連結輕鬆地分享樂譜 我的文章是以介紹ABC Notation使用為主和推薦大家如果想要玩玩這個打譜的語法時,使用 HackMD 是個方便的平台 當然目前音樂業界在製譜的時候,還是以主流的付費套裝軟體為主 (例如 Sibelius) 希望透過分享 ABC Notation 的用法以及 HackMD 的使用經驗,讓更多人可以試試這種不一樣的創作方式
