Score Writer is the affordable notation software that makes recording, editing, arranging and printing your music easy, fast and enjoyable. You can quickly enter notes on-screen with your mouse or computer keyboard, or record a MIDI performance. Score Writer’s intuitive interface puts powerful editing tools and symbol palettes at your fingertips, so you spend time composing music instead of searching through menus. For band and small orchestral arrangements, lead sheets, choral parts or even simple notation examples, there’s no easier way to create professional notation than Score Writer.
The score window in Score Writer allows you to notate your music quickly and easily. You control all notation elements with the mouse or computer keyboard. Extensive text handling functions make it easy to add or edit lyrics, page text, measure text and rehearsal marks. Move staves on the page with a click of the mouse — even resize the music on the page
Score Writer has the MIDI recording capabilities you’ve always wanted in a notation program. It reads and writes standard MIDI files, provides tape deck-style transport controls, as well as multiple recording options. Score Writer offers complete MIDI playback of dynamics markings, repeats and endings. And you can edit your recorded MIDI performance on-screen, using the score window.
Score Writer has extensive notation symbols including slurs, ties, grace notes, cue notes, tuplets, accents marks, ornaments, ottava, lift, fall off, glissando up/down, and dynamics markings. Notating drum parts has never been easier. You can play your drum sounds on a MIDI instrument and Score Writer will place the notes with percussion note heads onto a five line percussion staff. It even features an Expression palette so you can enter tempo and other changes easily.
