Finale Songwriter 2012

MakeMusic has updated their entry level notation software, Finale Songwriter. Still using a pencil? What happens when you decide to change the key? When you notate your music by hand, changing the key or adding an intro means starting over. When your music is in SongWriter it’s easy to change keys, add measures, and move things around any way your creative impulses move you.

What’s more, you can listen to the results – before the rehearsal. When you can hear what you’ve written you can quickly refine your music to sound exactly the way you want.

SongWriter does the heavy lifting, like managing how each staff plays back and transposes, so you don’t have to. Simply select the instruments you wish to write for and get started!

Work with collaborators? SongWriter can help here too, even if your partners use different software. SongWriter can open files made by the entire family of Finale software as well as import MIDI and MusicXML files created by hundreds of other products.
