NoteWorthy Composer 2.0
An easy to use authoring tool, is a software music composition and notation processor.
NoteWorthy Composer, an easy to use authoring tool, is a software music composition and notation processor. It allows you to create, record, edit, print and play back your own musical scores.
You can use the built-in transpose feature to quickly adapt a part written for an instrument in a different key to the native key for your instrument. The print feature makes it possible to publish sheet music right from your desktop. You can also save your notation as a MIDI performance for use in other MIDI applications, including software karaoke players.
Here are some key features of "NoteWorthy Composer":
?· Create Your Own Songs: Write your own songs, or transcribe existing songs, using the notation editor. The editor allows you to create notation in a manner similar to writing a document in a word processor. Add parts (staves), notes, text, lyrics, and symbols directly from the editor. A note palette is available for visually setting most note attributes, with optional keyboard shortcuts for note entry using only the computer keyboard. An Undo/Redo feature allows you to reverse up to 100 of your most recent changes.
?· Listen to Your Songs: Songs can be played back via your computer's sound card, or to external MIDI setups. Notes are highlighted as they are played, so you can follow along while the computer plays back your creation.
?· Record Your Performance: You can use an external MIDI keyboard for real-time and step-time entry of your music. Use the record button to record a new performance while the current song is played, and then polish it in the notation editor. For step-time input, you can interactively input your notes remotely from a MIDI keyboard while editing a score.
?· Print Your Songs: Print your whole score for a conductor's view, or just the parts that you select. You can specify the notation size, in points, for fitting various arrangements on the page. Arrangements can be previewed prior to printing.
?· Import and Export Standard MIDI File Format: Use the interactive Import Wizard to load an existing performance that is contained in a standard MIDI file (*.mid). The performance will automatically be converted to notation, which you can then listen to, edit, rearrange, and polish. Standard MIDI files can be exported, which can be shared with others who need *.mid file format.
?· Transpose Parts into Other Keys: A transpose feature can be used to transpose parts from one key to another. Notes and key signatures are automatically updated to the new key. Support is included for instruments that are not tuned to concert C (A440) tuning via a second, audio only transpose mechanism.
?· Publish Your Songs on the Internet: There are several supporting freeware products for NoteWorthy Composer that will allow you to share your NoteWorthy Composer song files (*.nwc) with your friends, family and fans. The NoteWorthy Composer Browser Plug-in extends the capabilities of your web browser to include the display, play back and printing of *.nwc song files. As an NWC user and web page designer, show your *.nwc song files in action on your site by embedding the song files to display in the NWC Browser Plug-in. NoteWorthy Player is an application that will display and play back *.nwc song files. With the NoteWorthy Composer Winamp Plug-in, *.nwc song files can be added to a Winamp play list.
