This is a great product that allows me to edit and create new scores easily, with a good and easy to use interface (UI), and supports what you want to do with it, musically. The keyboard/ other instrument playback of which notes and values are selected is a very useful tool. It also restores sessions if it expectantly closes. Overall, this is a very useful product for writing music, and best of all it is FREE. I would still pay for it. Thanks Muse score for a good product!
Even if this was not free, id still buy it.
A great download!
A quality app like this should make you guys millionaire.
I can't believe how easy it was to get started (once I figured out I need to press 'n' for note input mode), add chords and lyrics. Great job!
