You might want to take a look at Finale Notepad or possibly Sibelius.

I know of a completely free program... Musescore. Google it, it works pretty well most of the time. You do need to download a soundpack or something like that so that way the instruments sound (generally) like what they're supposed to and not just Piano (nothing against piano...but it doesn't do a distorted guitar or a double bass justice).

Finale's great. I think there is a free version out there, with limited features. I'm not sure if its any good, as I have the full version, and thus wouldn't use the lighter versions, but the full thing is definitely awesome.

I use Sibelius 6. It isn't free. I'll probably get flamed from someone but pirating works.

Came across one a year or two ago. I think it was Anvil Studio. You could write in dots or piano roll and display/print the staves, though it was a bit fiddly and no way to combine different instruments. Otherwise it was a standard midi editor.

finale notepad
it costs money now because they added a few features but i got it back when it was free and i can manage without the fancy stuff. my biggest complaint is not being able to change tempo or time sig in the middle of the piece but thats about it, it gets the work done
When i die, i wanna be burried upside down...so that anybody who doesnt like me can kiss my ass.

Can it save scores as midi files (which would make it compatible with Sibelius, Sonar etc)?


I think you can save stuff as MIDI, I'm not sure though, I can check....*goes to check* Yeah, you can save it as general MIDI, and loads of other files too.
