MakeMusic 13-PHR14DCO overview

  • 1Description

Available for download, Finale PrintMusic from MakeMusic is music notation and compositional software. It provides songwriters, musicians, producers, publishers, worship directors, and teachers with the ability to easily compose and notate music on a Mac or Windows operating system.

Manually enter notes on a score with your computer keyboard and mouse, play your songs in real time using a MIDI keyboard controller, import and read from MP3 files, or scan existing music scores and generate scores from the scanned images. The software can automatically create a chart at the top of handbell music that lists every bell used.

PrintMusic is completely self-contained, providing over 128 professional virtual instrument sounds. The Human Playback feature minimizes the mechanical feel of software and lets you export MIDI, JPEG and MusicXML files. Staff layout capabilities make it simple and intuitive to hide, move, and edit staves.

MakeMusic 13-PHR14DCO reviews

Finale PrintMusic Notation and Composition Software (Download) is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unsuitable for chant notation I bought PrintMusic because our church has a lot of hand-written music. Print music seemed to be the right choice to get started on making some clean, easy to read transcribed copies. Our choir music is all four part acappella chant with no instrumentation. So I didn't need the MIDI, orchestration, or any advanced entry or playback features in Finale. PrintMusic appeared to be the perfect choice. Long story short: PrintMusic doesn't allow time signatures to be hidden. And I cannot change time signatures other than the presets in the menu. Chant doesn't have a time signature per se but the beats per measure depend on the phrase being sung. So if chant has 11 beats one measure, 10 beats the next, and 8 beats the third I'd have three time signatures in just three measures and note overruns all over the place. A complete mess and hard to read. A search of MakeMusic's knowledge base led me to a year old answer - one has to upgrade to Finale. I don't have the required educational or religious institution credentials to qualify for discounted Finale pricing so I've just spent nonrefundable money on a product that cannot do its intended job. Very disappointed that such a highly rated and reputed notation program would fall so short.
