music notation software [Nov. 5th, 2004|09:13 am]


Does anyone know of a notation software that is not so MIDI-oriented that it sacrifices functions crucial for modern classical music? According to the rosegarden handbook online, you can't get more than one voice per staff. I'm not sure any programs allow feathering beam angles. And I don't want to learn a text language -- guess that makes me a bad linux user. I'd hate to go back to Finale on Windows.

If you're on Linux, Rosegarden is your main choice, but, like you said, it's focus is playback and recording more than anything else (Cakewalk products suffer form thsi same problem). I think there is a nother one called Note Edit or something like that but have never used it. If you are creating sheet music, Lilypond is the way to go.

Finale, I think, can run under Wine since it doesn't require any specialized audio interface beyond MIDI.
