    I need a program that will allow me to input notes onto manuscript in treble and bass clefs from the computer keyboard. For example one could use a series of twelve keys for the twelve notes, a series of keys to toggle between note time values and a toggle between notes and rests. Other keys and/or combinations could give misc. instructions and symbols. The resulting file should be a .gif and some playable format like .mid or .wav. Quality of the sound could be sacrificed for small, quick loading files. A simple program like this would vastly increase the ease of sharing musical ideas on forums like this and through email. I imagine one of the fancy sequencers will do it but I don't think I'm alone in being someone who has no use for more than what I've described and doesn't want to pay for and sift through a bunch of stuff I'll never use.
    Is there anything like this out there?
    If not who could write it? I'd definitely throw whatever support I could behind it.

    Maybe this is what you're looking for:

    NoteWorthy Composer - http://www.ntworthy.com

    I think it outputs only .bmp images, but that could easily be converted by some freeware image viewer such as IrfanView or whatever.
     
  3. the easisest composer EVER is <a href="http://www.sibelius.com">Sibelius</a>! it has all you asked for and more!

    and so easy to use on internet! can save as images, html (requires the sibelius FREE scorch plugin), midi....

    it´s soooo cool.. :)

    but too bad it costs lots of money... :(
