Notation and lyrics ► Export to MusicXML (Producer only)

SONAR lets you export notation to the MusicXML format, which can be used in other notation programs such as Finale and Sibelius. MusicXML serves as a functional standard for saving notation data in a better way than MIDI.
Note: SONAR can export MusicXML files, but can not import MusicXML files. To import scores into SONAR, first export them to a standard MIDI file, then import the MIDI file into SONAR.
SONAR’s Staff view includes a layer of visual quantization to allow complex MIDI data to be displayed as standard notation. This includes the Display Resolution, Fill Durations and Trim Durations settings. When exporting to MusicXML, the notation is exported exactly the way it is displayed in the Staff View after visual quantization is applied, which could differ from what is stored as MIDI data.
Click the Staff view Print menu and choose Export to MusicXML.
The Save As dialog box appears.
