Finale SongWriter

Finale SongWriter, designed specifically for songwriters, is the fast, easy way to create and print professional-quality sheet music. Import and export MIDI files, enter music with your mouse, computer keyboard or MIDI device to create music with up to 8 staves. Breathe life into sheet music with professional instrument sounds, realistic playback, and creative inspiration. Hear your notes as you enter them, then press Play to hear how they interact. But SongWriter does more than make sounds. SongWriter makes music – and even offers creative suggestions. Your music deserves to be heard with all the feeling and phrasing you imagined when you wrote it. Human Playback makes this possible by playing your music with the nuance and expression of human performers. When Human Playback is combined with the high-quality software instrument sounds built into SongWriter, the results are amazing. Need help harmonizing your melody ? Not sure what the drummer should play ? No problem. SongWriter offers composers and arrangers idea-generating tools to save time and suggest creative options. Band-in-a-Box Auto-Harmonizing can automatically turn your melody into two – or three-voice harmony. Use Drum Groove to easily add custom drum parts in a variety of styles. When you notate your music by hand, changing the key or adding an intro means starting over. When your music is in SongWriter it’s easy to change keys, add measures, and move things around any way your creative impulses move you. Don’t let great ideas get away! Simply play your MIDI keyboard and music automatically appears in SongWriter. You can also enter notes with your computer keyboard or mouse. SongWriter can open files made by the entire family of Finale software as well as import MIDI and MusicXML files created by hundreds of other products. Should you ever have a question, SongWriter includes QuickStart Videos and other resources, right in the Launch Window.

Really hard to use I’m giving it 3 stars because it was cheap, and seems to be very powerful, but my goodness is it stupid and difficult to use. For example, I’m trying to record from a keyboard, and it knows I’m recording from a keyboard, and knows it should be recording on to two staffs (because I’ve told it, in addition to, duh, it’s recording from a keyboard, and it’s showing two staffs, so you can see them), but records all the notes on to one staff. Sometimes, by accident, seemingly, it does it correctly, but I haven’t figured out why. I can’t imagine who programmed this, and why they wouldn’t just make it automatic that if you tell it you’re recording from a keyboard, that it should record on to two staffs, and split which notes go to which staff at middle C. If the user wants to change from the default, fine, but set up a sensible default that 99.99% of users would want to use.From reading other comments of other software, it seems that they’re all horrible, so that’s another reason for not giving this lower marks.There are dialog boxes missing “OK” buttons, just an “x” to close them, so it’s not intuitive whether selections are saved or not. It just seems, in general, like very power, and inexpensive, software, but not designed by someone who understood elementary software design considerations.

Read instructions I spent two days trying to get the software to work. After several emails I noticed to RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR. Do this . If you don’t you will get that annoying font error message! Otherwise, the product behaved as advertised.
