Simon,

What sorts of things are 'the works' that you get for the £9? It sounds like a good deal.

Finale Notepad 2009 costs £9 (I think), it will allow you to write/compose and playback what you transcribe....neat!

It takes a little time to get used to it but its worth sticking at it.

Yes but we downloaded Finale Notepad when it was free and any emails to the importers are ignored.
BTW Ian, as you just lash out $99 without a thought, are you sure you are not Fred Goodwin Bt?
No need to be quite so offensive you old git.

For the record I do nothing without a though, except of course improvise!

Hi,

I thought I'd dig up this old post rather than start a new thread.

I've just come across some online music composing software, you can choose to create, save and print your own stuff privately or share it with others. Having had a quick play I rather like the way you place the note on the stave with the mouse and can change its value using the '[' & ']' keys, [ decreases the value, ] increases the value. Anyway for anyone not wanting to buy any software or who wants to share there scores it might be worth checking out.

Oh, I should say you have to set up an account to try it but setting up the account is not as intensive or as invasive as some sites. The other thing is that you'll need is Flash 10 player but that's free from Adobe and you probably already have it.

In Finale Notepad is there a way of having a different key signature for each stave on the page.

I would like to do a page of scales etc

Do you have a button in the main tool pallet that looks like Bb key signature, ie. ♭♭? If so click on that and then double click in the bar you want the new key signature to start on and a dialogue window opens where you can set it.

All the best,

Chris

Tried that but it just chances the key signature for the whole page:(

I am doing something wrong

Hi Mamos,

I'm not sure I can help then, I'm using PrintMusic so it might be a limitation with NotePad. One last thing you could try is using the same tool but Right Click or 'Ctrl' click and you then just get a list of key signatures to choose from.

Hopefully someone with NotePad will be along shortly and can help you out.

All the best,

Chris
