  • 1Description

Finale SongWriter from MakeMusic is notation software designed especially with songwriters in mind, and provides a fast and easy way to create and print professional quality sheet music.

Enter notes with a mouse, computer keyboard, or MIDI device, or import MIDI and/or MusicXML files. Create great looking sheet music that sounds great when played back via the included instruments, and then share your music in multiple ways.

Music Writing
  • Easy to change keys, add measures, and move things around any way your creative impulses move you - no need to start over when you want to change something or add an intro
  • Sheet music plays back what is written
  • Listen to the results before the rehearsal, so if necessary you can quickly refine your music to sound exactly the way you want.
  • Software manages how each staff plays back and transposes, so you don't have to - simply select the instruments you wish to write for and get started
  • Includes QuickStart Videos and other resources, right in the Launch Window
Note Entry
  • When inspiration strikes, you want to notate it quickly - simply play your MIDI keyboard and the music automatically appears in SongWriter
  • If you prefer you can enter notes with your computer keyboard or mouse
  • SongWriter can help with collaboration, even if your band mates use different software
  • Program can open files made by the entire family of Finale software like Finale PrintMusic and Finale Allegro, as well as import MIDI and MusicXML files created by hundreds of other products

  • Offers professional instrument sounds, realistic playback, and creative inspiration
  • Hear your notes as you enter them, and then press play to hear how they interact
  • Human Playback plays your music with the nuance and expression of human performers

  • Professional looking music makes it not only easier to read, but instills greater performance confidence
  • Add lyrics, chord symbols, repeats, codas, and a wide variety of musical markings
  • Writing for guitar doesn't end with chord symbols - choose to display crisp fretboard diagrams, and creating tablature for guitar or bass is also simple and easy
  • When you enter a note on a percussion staff, the software provides on-screen feedback indicating whether you're about to enter a snare, bass drum, or other percussion instrument and displays the appropriate note head

  • Not only can you put all these items on your page, you have control over the appearance of your page - want to move a measure from this system to the next? It's as easy as hitting the down arrow key
