The Ultimate Music Tool
"Simple Enough for a Beginner, Powerful Enough for a Professional."
Better Control Over Composition.
More Powerful Musical Options. Support triplets, quintuplets, ties, slurs, beams, multiple time and key signatures within a song, transposition, repeats, octave signs and more.
Unmatched Mouse Control. See and hear where notes will go before you drop them; grab and slide notes and bar lines to move them where you want; select music for full Cut, Paste, and Copy editing.
Multiple Staffs and Clefs. Up to 8 staffs, up to 2 tracks per staff in each song. Use as many treble, bass, tenor and alto clef as you need. Enter notes and chords by clicking directly on the score or on the on-screen piano keyboard.
Better Control Over Playback.
4-Voice Sound. Play through the Mac alone, or turn on the special external speaker command. Use the on-screen keyboard as a player piano, or watch the notes themselves flash as they play.
16 Different Instruments. Plus multiple play styles (staccato, vibrato, etc.) for each instrument. Use a new instrument for each staff and change instruments and play styles within each staff whenever you like.
Powerful Dynamic Control. Use crescendo, diminuendo and other dynamic markings to shape playback volume within each staff. Set playback speed from 1 to 240 beats per minute.
Better Control Over Printing.
Full Mac Printing. All the printing features you'd expect from your Macintosh and then some. Full "what you see is what you get" preview on the screen. Supports the LaserWriter.
Lyrics, Fonts and Styles. Include lyrics and even guitar chord notation in your scores. Complete access to all existing Mac fonts, sizes and styles plus special new fonts for music symbols.
Finished, Professional Appearance. Unique ability to reposition individual notes and chords to avoid overlapping symbols. Stretch the space within, above and below each staff to fit the shape and style of each composition.
