Create, playback, and print sheet music for free. MuseScore is cross-platform, multi-lingual, open source music notation software. It features an easy to use WYSIWYG editor with audio score playback for results that look and sound beautiful. It supports unlimited staves with up to four voices each, dynamics, articulations, lyrics, chords, lead sheet notation, import/export of MIDI and MusicXML, export to PDF and WAV, plus online score sharing.
I tried on different machine and it runs comfortably on any Core 2 Duo i3 1.6 to 3.4.
The product is fairly stable on Windows Mac and Linux.
I use it for less than a month. I Musictime for Windows 95 and Mac OS 8.6, in other words useless.
I was asked scores of two pieces and having struggled on Logic and Cubase (as mentioned below, are not publishers partitions), as I needed an urgent solution, I took Muse Score, after reading some very complimentary reviews.
I found a little closer particular (I struggled to put my first notes), but once understood, the app is beautiful (not in look, but use).
Coda, ped, shades .... everything is interpreted. It has a good idea of the final report.
I use it mainly for the piano, so I can not compare the rest. But the end result is beautiful. The score is clear and legible.
I can compare it to Muziktime and Encore (the only ones I've used) and I must say it is a great success. I've seen work and Sibellius Pizzicato and the result seems to be up to par.
Plus it's free (a contribution is always coming).
I must say that this is my best musical surprise this year!
Good for negative points, they are only details. A slightly more elaborate interface a little more intuitive and would be a bit more sexy. But already there is giant.
Software easy to use, configurable in seconds.
Can be installed simply enough soundfonts once decompressed.
You can use midi devices without problem.
The online manual is very comprehensive, and user forum provides additional support when needed.
The software works well with an aging computer and peripherals integrated audio (no need for a dedicated audio card)
I use this software for several years to make arrangements for string quartet of students (I am a teacher of violin) and I am fully satisfied.
this free software was designed by musicians, and it shows. Its use is very intuitive and even a novice will find it fairly quickly given a well-thought user interface and easy access menus.
I tried demo versions of paid software that proved true gasworks. Musescore is free, and its use seems much easier than a lot of professional software.
- Ease of use
- Very complete
- Manual very clear line
- Visual scores after nice impression.
- General Midi sounds a bit ugly
- Can not install VST (at least to my knowledge)
- Some bugs sometimes (but rare)
I recommend this program without hesitation for everyday use, provided you do not're an professional music too fussy. There are probably more efficient software out price, but for me, Musescore is exactly what I was looking for (! And more, totally free) complete without headaches
Easy installation, configuration idem, clear and existing manual in French. The forums are rich in useful contributions.
DP43TF Intel, 2GB DDR2 Dimm, Realtek Audio, a brief office PC already quite old. No problem.
I have been trying for three days, I know the module Score Cubase SX2, which I find very decent for a sequencer, Harmony Assistant, Forte, Notation Composer, Final I just do not like the interface, and I compare MuseScore now with the demo version of Sibelius First 7. I have not pushed things far enough to compare all the possibilities and those of Harmony Assistant MuseScore, but the latter wins the prize, to me, intuitive matter (HA is pretty cluttered, but it creates all kinds of tabs instruments, including diatonic or chromatic, with lots of options - advantage HA). MuseScore meets demanding classical composers, it goes far beyond my needs, we can find images of Partos Web. A detail, I appreciate the model Leadsheet Jazz, with its text fonts (chord symbols) jazz. MuseScore import and export MusicXML, MIDI files are imported, but less precisely than Sibelius First 7, which is nice. Still, really remains to be seen whether the differences justify an expenditure of one hundred dollars.
hey, this is just to say bpm to stop his nonsense of school (read my review below on this app).
I never had any serious crashes on this sift, his only downside is that it has no implementation vst with it plus it would be worse than the bomb, when the intuitive or it put 0, it is up to us to adapt. I also tried them all (I'm a professional musician and I have several projects ouevres with writing for full orchestra), he is the more intuitive! Its only drawback was the poor quality sound, even with fluid soundfont, but not all between 450 and 800 euros to buy sheet music publishers! it works great for any partition editor bpm?
and cubase is not a partition editor but a sequencer general, do not confuse any
very happy except for the sounds, I hope one day to set vst module packs Garritan sounds like virtual or eastwest
