I’ve been disappointed more than once with music notation software. Too often - it can be quite a task to get what I hear in my head into the editor… and too often - the applications overreach by offering playback that never has the same ‘rhythmic feel’ as what I was intending to write. As exciting as these apps can be (with their many powerful features); when I actually attempt to use them - I find them to be more of a ‘drag’ on the creative moment than an inspiring tool. So, I thought… What if I could just pull up a text editor (or ‘word’ program) and put down ideas that are adequately articulate and consistently translatable to any implementation?
The following is a rudimentary text code I created for this purpose.
I call it: ‘Cherry Text’ - or - ‘Cherry Code.’
