Music software developement

azl
I don't think this is the better place to post this, but I will take the liberty to do it.
I am interested in developing a piece of music software (could be a musescore plugin, but I think it isn't the best choice) whose basical function is to provide a visual representation of a piece of music. This would be represented quite simply, in form of a timeline, where time is a metrically and visually constant value. I would love that the program could allow reproduce it as a metronome. The data entry would be by bars, beats, measure indications and tempo markings, and the resulting scheme could be cutted in diferent structures (beats, bars, sections, movements).
I'm a musician, not a developer.  I've been making my own detailed calculations and studies, and have more or less the requirements specifications, but I need someone who can programme it. I think it can be very helpful for many musicians.
My questions are:
1/There's any program that can already make this?
2/ If not, how to find anyone to hire to help me developing it?
Thank you

Hi azl,

Your idea sounds very much like a step sequencer. Also check out this future development idea: a timeline in MuseScore.

Thank you  for the reply! It has been very useful.
I have done some experiments with Rosegarden (I've been able to make it sound, yes!), and up to a point, that is what I searched as "reproducer".
It lacks yet a second part, a visually friendlier scheme "engraver", similar to that Musescore future idea, that could be easily editable and exportable.
Many thanks and excuse my intrusion.
Best wishes for the release!
