About the Carnatic Music Notation Typesetter

Filed under: About,CM Notation Typesetter — arunk @ 1:01 pm

(Note: A new release Release v1.4 of the Carnatic Music Notation Typesetter released on Feb 21, 2008 with support for all 35 talas in catusra gati)

The Carnatic Music Notation Typesetter is a web-based application that allows you to typeset high quality notation sheets for carnatic music. It can generate notations in English, and if appropriate fonts are installed on your computer, it can even generate notation sheets in the following Indic languages: Sanskrit, Telugu, Tamil and Kannada.

The typesetter requires you to specify the notation for the song to be notated in a specific input format that is simple, and easy to use. The application converts the input into a graphical layout similar to those you see in carnatic music books .

The typesetter application currently is in Beta Release, which means it has some rough edges, and may not always be stable.

  • To know more about using the typesetter, please read the manual, and also look at the Examples.
  • To use this program effectively, you need to learn about how to specify the notation input. The Manual explains this in detail, and the examples are also a great way of learning how to specify Carnatic Music notations.
  • Launch! the application.

Browser Support: Firefox is currently the preferred browser to run the typsetter. However, typesetter should work on Internet Explorer and Opera. As indicated above, due to the typesetter being in Beta release, you may still run into problems on these browsers. It is the intention of the author(s) to support the typesetter on Firefox, Opera, IE and Safari (on Mac).

  9. Hi Arun,

    Thank you for creating such excellent tools for Carnatic music.

    I particularly like your gamaka applet.

    I was looking for a free tool that could play carnatic music notation and didn’t find one to suit my needs.

    So I hacked a working prototype in Groovy. ( )
    I haven’t published the code, mainly because it is messy.

    I looked at your sourceforge repository and got the impression that you might already be working on rendering notation into audio.

    I’d be willing to share my code and ideas with you or anybody who’d be willing to improve it and make it available to the community.

    This was such a wonderful software. I had never typed Carnatic music notations before or have any idea about coding. It was extremely helpful! Although when I save the notations in pdf, the melsthayi dot on swarams disappear. What can I do about it?
