I am trying to find a good all-text (type able) musical notation system that already exists* and that has some usage and credibility.
Ideally, such a system would allow very simple musical notation:
D2 E2 C2 C1 G1
As well as allow for the encoding of more complex concepts like what kind of waveform should be used, duration (expressed in milliseconds or as number of beats), the tempo, pauses, etc. Some completely made up examples of what I mean here:
BPM-100 SIN-A1 PAUSE-1.5 SAW-C1-2 SINE-G#2-.5 SINE-Eb1-200ms
It would be even better if it had conventions for defining waveforms that could be used, specifying attack, volume changes, pans, frequency changes, etc.
(Also, I wasn't sure whether this question belonged here or on the Musical Practice and Performance SE site, let me know if I got it wrong)
*OK, I'd actually love to invent my own, but that is often a bad idea as my ugly example indicates..
