    Ready for use! Very practical PDF export and MIDI export features.

    Really excellent for free software in that it doesn't force you to use their templates or conform to any format outside of the basic rules of music themselves. I'm not giving it all five stars because it's a little hard to navigate and very glitchy—things will randomly move and get messed up, and once you get to a certain level of complexity the whole program crashes at the slightest provocation. However, if you can circumnavigate the glitches, it's great software. You can do almost whatever you want, and the playback gives the gist of what it sounds like, which is super nice.

    Version 2.0 is a great improvement. I like it more than Harmony Assistant and Finale Song Writer, which I have both. The only problem is that plugin writing is not documented well, but the average user doesn't need it.

    Awesome feature set also for classical modern music; incredibly easy to use; an exemplary software, not only in the music notation sector, but in the world of open source software in general
