Re: Is there a translator from LilyPond to XML?

Hello Dennis,

I use Photo Score Ultimate (which I bought as part of a Sibelius bundle) to 
scan PDFs and sheet music, it’s worth its price in my opinion.

This allows exports as MusicXML. Never tried it this way though, since I first 
export to Sibelius to fine tune the score before obtaining MusicXML to be 
imported in LP.

So creating a PDF score with LP can lead to MusicXML in this setup.
