The notation software includes a virtual piano to let you input notes and rests. Guitar chord features include entering guitar chords from a user-extensible chord library and the ability for chord patterns to be saved as templates.

Powerful Music Notation Software Tools

Each individual element in a score can be edited and moved wherever the composer desires. The Notes and Symbols Palette makes it easy to the enter notes, clefs, keys, rests, tab, and all the symbols required to create professional music notation. To speed up note entry you can combine entering a note along with its style, semitone, microtone, tremolo, triplet, and other symbols in one stroke. There is even a microtonal editor that allows you to create music notation for pitches in microtonal steps. For ease of use, frequently used symbols can be maximized. Hot Keys are available to quickly switch between modes for adding different types of music notation symbols to your score, plus you can design and save your own library of notation symbols. Guitar notation includes symbol and playback support for bends, hammer-ons/pull-offs, vibrato and other techniques. Users can also add custom instruments and tunings. Also, it’s easy to switch between guitar tab notation and standard music notation views and to mix the two music notation styles in one document. Guitar tab and standard music notation are optionally synchronized.
