permalink MML (Music Macro Language)

MML is the collective term for music notation language derived from Microsoft BASIC. It's a very primitive form of computer music which tones/notes/durations are set just by the sequence of usual text. Also the text itself is often called MML.

The drawback of MML is the fact that the organization of the sound is not easily readable as it basically consists of cold figures and alphabets like program source codes, and the advantage is the simplicity that everyone can make music just with a text editor.

In Japan it was the most popular way for computer music by the end of 16-bit era. But today MML is not very often used outside the chiptune scene. In the West the MML has been almost forgotten until mck appeared.
