Typeset music scores with TeX

This is MusiXTeX version T.89 (March 24, 1998). This package contains the MusiXTeX macros, musixflex, MusiXTeX User's Manual in LaTeX source and DVI formats, and example source MusiXTeX music score files.

MusiXTeX is a set of versatile and power TeX macros to typeset polyphonic, orchestral or choral music. It allows very fine control and produces professional printed music scores.

Due to the important amount of information to be provided to the typesetting process, coding MusiXTeX might appear to be awfully complicated, especially for beginners. Therefore, it is recommended to use MusiXTeX with some pre-processors, such as ABC2MTeX, PMX, M-Tx and GNU LilyPond, all available as Debian packages. Visit the GMD Music Archive at <> for more information.
