Can Musescore do harmonic analysis?

• Feb 18, 2023 - 05:32

I was just chatting with chat.openai and asking it if there was software that could take a score and analyze it harmonically.

It told me that MuseScore could do that. So after adding a plugin I realized that it was only going to let me analyze one chord at a time. Still not bad.

Is there anyway to analyze a score and get something printed on the score or a complete analysis?


Software i'm afraid not yet, but I know there's a position that have talented young men do exactly that for you, plus you receive stipend at the same time.

You are right, chords identification is only a first step of harmonic analysis.
Regarding harmonic analysis itself, I am aware of two softs doing something about:
one is free…
the other not free

I don’t use these softs so don’t know if the are efficient but may be can help our friend.

That chord identifier plugin looks great.

The other one doesn’t work portably, it apparently relies on QtWebEngine being initialised by the C++ program itself before it’s usable in QML, which Free builds of MuseScore cannot do, nor does QtWebEngine exist on all platforms MuseScore works on.
