Options for Music Publisher
Music Publisher
Music notating software with a difference. Its design philosophy is simply to replace pen and paper: it leaves you in complete command of the whole score-writing process and layout. For total flexibility and control it allows you to put whatever you want wherever you want it - it does not impose any standards of its own, so if what you write is particular to you then fine. In fact think of it as a word-processor for music. The full range of facilities are there from clefs to ending barlines. It covers general text (drop text anywhere you want it), lyrics, 190+ miscellaneous symbols (just place on the paper as required), many types of line and even a shape-drawing tool should you want it, plus headers and footers and of course transposition, playback, part extraction, quarter tones, auto bar numbering and Midi file. And many others! Inkeeping with the philosophy suggested by the program's title it can create high resolution pictures of any part of the page for transferring very quickly to a word-processor or PDF file or of course the printed page. The program is very intuitive and there is also a wealth of help with the program: four user levels give decreasing amounts of help as you move yourself up; a built-in Tutorial; a "What's this for?" button on every control; a Tip of the Day and the strongly indexed Help file is organised as the answers to over 300 "How do I..." questions. There is also an indexed, coloured 270 page illustrated manual supplied as PDF file. Particular customer requirements have been added - provision has been made for ABC format import and export and Great Highland Bagpipe notation. However it's just as happy with an opera or concerto. So flexible is the program that some customers actually earn their living as copyists using only Music Publisher. Finally, and not least, registered customers have free updates to the latest version of Music Publisher 8 via the web site
