Music Annotation – MuseScore

Although I’m not a musician, I have an aunt who is. While trying to find everything that she would need to convert to Linux, I found MuseScore, a music score typesetter.

MuseScoreFrom their official site, the list of features include:

  • WYSIWYG, notes are entered on a “virtual note sheet”
  • unlimited number of staves
  • up to four voices/staff
  • easy and fast note entry with mouse, keyboard or midi
  • integrated sequencer and FluidSynth software synthesizer
  • import and export of MusicXml and standard midifiles (SMF)
  • platform independent code for Linux, Windows and Mac
  • GNU GPL licenced

You can download MuseScore for Linux, and there is also a test version for Windows. Now I’m one step closer to convincing her to switch.  🙂
