Piano Softwares
on: September 21, 2003, 06:52:25 AM
Anyone know any good piano softwares for computer?  I don't have any but would like to sample.  Perhaps a software that makes it easy to compose, transpiring notes you play directly to computer, things of that nature.  Any other fun additives would be cool too.  I'm really not familiar with the whole thing.  Anyone that could assist information in the area, it would be much appreciated.  Ei: What softwares do you own and what do you think of them..?

I own Sibelius

Great software, well so far the best considering that I've tried Noteworthy Composer and Cakewalk Overture.  Sibelius can print, transpose, handle all types of instruments, yadda yadda...

It is very expensive. Hence I have a pirated edition. If you want to buy the real thing or found out more information check out www.sibelius.com,

I "own" Sibelius 2 and it is great.  There is also Finale 2003, which is very good too.  There are many neat features in Sibelius 2, such as TempoRubato, which allows one to enter music from a MIDI keyboard into the computer in a more natural way.  There is also some plug-in that allows you to scan music from a scanner and it will appear as notes.  It is good notation software.  Sibelius 2 can handle almost anything.

Sure, I do own Sibelius, I bought it from the Store of Kazaa... Well, time is money.  And no, I am not promoting pirating software.

BTW, Edward, there's a "Modify" feature (right beside the Quote link) where one can correct their mistakes without having to spam posts.  Just a thought/suggestion :P.
