Writing Music

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by SpecialEd, Oct 19, 2002.


  1. Hey I know that there some good music writing programs out there in the world. The problem is just finding them. If anyone knows where I could download one that would be a big help. Also if you have any sujestion on which ones to use and which ones not to use that would be nice to. Thanks for comments and sujestions.

    When you say "writing", do you mean a notation program or a program that'll play music programmed by you?
     
  3. One that you can put down notation

    I use finale...its pretty good
    also there is Cakewalk
    and there are some freeware programs but they are very limited.

    check download.com
    or if you use mac
    versiontracker.com(better for macs)

    Finale has a free version available, too. It's a much simpler program, with many less features, but check their website. It's called Finale Notepad.
