    It is related to music if you ever plan on selling and promoting your music.

    MuseScore is a capable, versatile notation program like Sibelius, but open source and free. If you need to produce good-looking sheet music, try this (can also export to LilyPad files). Available for Windows, Mac OS and Linux, translated into 40+ languages.

  4. I have Finale Notepad, and I did try Musescore. They don't like each other though. :eyebrow:

    Does anybody know of any notation software for mobile or tablet devices? I'd love to be able to get some work done during downtimes, while riding the subway and whatnot.

    I've made a free alto sax library with expressive vibrato, and bonus mappings where it pretends to be an accordion and a subtractive synthesizer.

    Also an excellent free piano dropped a few days ago, a Kawai semi-concert grand: http://www.productionvoices.com/estate-grand-le-for-sforzando/

    There's a commercial version which adds two more mic perspectives, but the free one is close-miked which makes it a great piano for sitting in dense rock mixes, especially since it's naturally a brighter instruments than Steinways etc.

    I know the request is a few years old but Faststone is an excellent very underrated image editor/image browser with lots of functionality built in. Very fast and lightweight. Much simpler learning curve than gimp. I use a mac with lightroom and photoshop and still miss it for quick little chores, wish there was mac version.

    Several different bundles.. but there is a free drum machine... Not great but a decent enough tool to play around with.
