  1. Unison is a platform where you can create sheet music just by describing them with simple words.
  2. Hello, I am really interested in composing graphic notation music, so I searched on the internet for a free notation software that has been designed for this purpose. Unfortunately, I could not find anything. Do you know a graphic notation programm? If so, what is the name and where can I find it? Thanks! Maarten For example:
  3. Anyone know of some Eq software? I am looking one with a spectrum viewer more in depth than Fl parametric eq 2. I am on a budget, but wanted to see about which ones would have the most bang per buck.
  4. Hello everyone. I tried Scanscore that is a paid software for windows 10 and it allows you to scan any sheet music and make changes on it. It is only available for Windows for now. It has a very simple interface that you can easily use. First of all, there are three options for scanning. The first option is the scanner option. This option is the most accurate one for the detailed view of the score, however, it is the most impractical one since we are all using our smartphones instead of a scanner. The second option is importing image or PDF files. For the musicians who mostly use IMSLP to obtain sheet music, this option is very helpful. Third and the last option is to import photos from the app. This option was dissatisfying for me since the considerable amount of notes were absent despite the high-resolution photos that I had taken. After the scanning was complete, the first thing I saw was the original score on the left side. On the right side, there was a page with detected notes. Pages can be turned around with the "Change Layout" option. The next thing I had recognized was the Scanscore toolbar that allows you to make the most important changes like editing and playing the scores. I think this software can be used by a lot of musicians from different states like music students, teachers, conducters or orchestra members. I teach piano and my students are mostly children and beginner level adults. These groups of students are enthusiastic about playing some known pieces but most of those pieces are harder than their level. Plenty of times I thought about arranging the pieces to an easier version and dictate all of them to Finale. Instead of simplifying the music by rewriting and arranging from scratch, Scanscore is a great help for all of those procedures. Composing process mostly start with handwriting but it is required to be in a digital platform. After the handwriting, composer usually dictates the whole thing to Finale or Sibelius, one by one. I know this is a really inconvenient job to do and in my opinion, this process might be less painful by using Scanscore. Files can be exported as XML files and that files can be launched in Finale. Scanscore may be used effectively by both amateur and professional orchestras, chamber music groups, a great variety of gigs and in the educational field. I believe this software will continue to be developed by updates and get better and I hope they start these improvements from scanning quality. Even in this state, it is a life saver. You can visit this link to purchase: https://scan-score.com/en/ There's a free version you can try but there's no saving option :/
  5. EDIT: This survey is now closed, thanks to all who took part. I may publish the results in February, and if so, I will add a link here later. Hi folks - first post, so apologies to the mods if this type of post is not allowed! I am a composition student at the University of Surrey and I am throwing around a survey across the internet to gather some data on how musicians write music with music notation software - this forum seemed very lively, so I'm very interested in your thoughts. If you are someone that composes/arranges music with music notation software (Sibelius/Finale/MuseScore/etc.) I would be extremely grateful if you could spare 10 minutes to fill out this survey: https://freeonlinesurveys.com/s/eZTxmoaK At the end, there will be two participants chosen in a random raffle that will receive £15 via PayPal. The survey will close in 7 days (6th January 2018). If you have any questions/comments/discussion - fire away! Thank you and have a Happy New Year!
  6. Hi ppl! I am looking for a composition-software. I know programms which only allow you to type in notes in a notation view but I also need a piano-roll (like the one in Fruity-Loops or Logic, Garage-Band, etc..). It is also very important that I can integrate VSTs like "The Grand 3" or "Alicia's keys" because I hate that typical bad-quality-sound which programms like "Sibelius" have. I don't need any programms like "FL Studio" or "Logic" because I never use and don't want to pay for all of the functions beside the piano roll and vst-integration. regards alex2east :)
  7. Hi everyone, I'm Peter, a software developer. I've been developing a songwriter application running on smart phones, named "Simple Song Creator". I have finished the first version for iPhone and Windows Phone. It is a simple music composing application that has the ability to write out the music notes and lyrics of the songs you want to compose. You can use the app to capture new song ideas that come to your mind everywhere you go. * Features: - Write music notes and lyrics. - Playback function with the multiple sounds for different instruments. - Export the songs into MIDI or MusicXML files that you can copy to your computer when connecting your phone through iTunes, so that you can continue editing the songs using professional music composing softwares like Encore, Finale, Guitar Pro, ... Or you can send the file via email. For Windows Phone's devices, you can upload the songs to SkyDrive or Dropbox and then download to your computer. Have a look at it on the app store: - iPhone: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/score-creator/id572550128?mt=8 - iPad: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/score-creator-for-ipad/id627486149?mt=8 - Windows Phone: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/simple-song-creator/2dffd7e0-089d-4b18-ae89-f7a396d12cac Thanks a lot for reading!
  8. Hello fellow pianists :-) I would like to hear your opinion. I am the university student and this year I am working on my bachelor's thesis. I would like to make a smartphone application that would help the piano students or composers to easily transfer their ideas to piano score. The application would be capable of recording someone playing the piano then it would recognize the single notes or polyphony, the rythm and finally it would generete the MIDI output. The MIDI output could be then imported to some 3rd party dekstop software (like Finale, etc.) to obtain the classical piano score. Before I start I need to know whether you, pianists, would even like to use such an application. So would you use an application that can recognize and process the piano sound and generate the MIDI output? And if so what mobile platform would you prefer? Android / iOS / Windows Phone / Symbian / BlackBerry / anything else? What do you think? I really need your feedback and I would appreciate every answer! :-) Thanks in advance.
  9. I have what might be a laughably simple question but does software aiding the process of music composition exist? I'm talking about something similar to screenplay or novel writing software but for music. So I might plug in something like "Sonata" and it would offer various templates for sonata forms, prod me to modulate in the appropriate places etc. Does Sibelius do anything like this? Thanks. Wil
