Notation Composer

Notation Composer 4.0

Records notes just by playing MIDI instruments or inserts notes

Notation Composer is a multi-purpose program that can be used by musicians, composers, as well as music students. It offers a wide array of features that will help anyone to compose amazing music. The program efficiently handles both the sounds and the stave notations.

By using Notation Composer, you are enabled to easily import MIDI files that are afterward converted to printable music sheets. Notation Composer proves to be very professional when it comes to editing staves. You can place musical notes, add text, insert staff symbols and various expressions, change the note velocity, etc. Moreover, this application comes with a professional piano roll, which you can use whenever you need to know how specific musical notes will sound like.

After you finish creating or editing a certain music sheet, you can use the integrated player to listen to the result. Additionally, you can even make changes as the song plays.

The graphical user-interface might seem a bit overwhelming at first sight, yet the included Help manual will provide you with all the information that you need.

I enjoyed testing Notation Composer. It stands as a professional tool for musicians and offers all the necessary tools for creating a masterpiece. Though, it should be mentioned that in order to efficiently use the program, you might need some musical theory knowledge.
