Text file as target (command line tools)


I would like to know how to use a text file as a target in orchidea’s command line tools.

If run in terminal:

$ ./orchestrate --help
[orchidea, ver. 0.7]

orchestrate: computer-assisted orchestration
(c) 2022, www.orch-idea.org

Error: syntax is 'orchestrate <targetaudio.wav|targetscore.txt> config.txt <optional:effects.txt>'

This message suggests that it is possible to provide a text file as input. What is the “targetscore.txt” format? Is it the same as the connection.txt file?

My hidden agenda is to use orchidea’s player features. I love the audio results of the orchestrations.

Thank you,
