Easy and Versatile Note Entry Options
MagicScore Maestro provides you with a dozen different ways to enter notes into a score while also making it possible to listen to the music as you write it. With nothing more than the computer keyboard musicians can speed through an entire composition by using MagicScore Maestro's Quick Input mode or use a mouse along with a variety of other note entry methods such as step time and real time note entry with a MIDI keyboard. You can even enter notes using our handy on-screen piano keyboard or virtual guitar fretboard. Extracting and printing individual parts from complex scores is easy to do and allows for each part to be customized and formatted as desired by the publisher. Rewrite or transpose existing scores for other instruments with just a few simple mouse clicks.
Flexible Visual and Audio Controls
Each individual element in a MagicScore Maestro score is able to be edited and moved wherever the composer desires. Simply point and click on clef signs, brackets, bar lines, articulations, or individual notes to place them precisely where you need them on the page. These powerful visual layout tools are matched with an equally powerful set of options that, if needed, can help a composer fine tune audio playback to control details such as the attacks and releases of individual notes. Full ensembles or individual instrumental parts can then be played back or exported directly into high quality MP3 or WAV format audio files using realistic sf2 sound fonts.
