Free Music Software

I've been checking out a site called 'Giveaway of the Day' for a couple of weeks now and they always offer a free game and a free piece of software. Sometimes the software's nothing but screensaver but occasionally it's sort of neat. Today's is MagicScore School 5.0. here's a description...

MagicScore School 5.0 is a notation software for music aficionados, students, teachers, schools and colleges. The program offers people interested in music a variety of notation options – input, editing, printing, correctness check and much more.

MagicScore School, as the name implies, has been specially created for folks who are learning music, but professional musicians can use it as well.

Notes can be entered manually, copied from another source, added through the virtual piano, MIDI keyboard or synthesizer.

MagicScore School is also capable of reading notes from MIDI and Karaoke files, as well as recording MIDI and Karaoke files.

The program is also capable of printing blank staff notation sheets.

The program also supports Music XML format.

Sounds sort of cool. The only catch is that you have to download AND install the software today. I missed out on a nice program for finding duplicate files last week because I downloaded it and then forgot to install.

I'll stick a link in the sidebar (under 'Geek Stuff').
