Yes, but as I understand it, xml retains more of your file's information than mid. May not be too important, but depending on how the mid is created and how you open it, sometimes things like instrument name don't show up. Just depends. Whatever works for you.

I'll be exporting MID files - .mid, probably not .xmf  I assume all of these notation programs can import .mid files?

Latest version of most notation software will open xml files. Not all information is in those files, but enough to print out parts.

I compose arrange and compose music with my DAW, Sonar, but there are times when I'd like to print out charts for specific tracks, like notation for a violinist. I know little about the software that's available, like Notion, Sibelius, and Finale. I should probably download any demos that are available. My DAW uses a Windows 7 OS. Thanks for any input. -doug

Not sure what you are after.

Do we need it? Is it valid? Give us a little help.
