Score Editor Basics

The Score Editor allows you to display any possible piece of music as a score, complete with all the necessary symbols and formatting. You can extract parts out of a full orchestra score, add lyrics and comments, create lead sheets, drum scores, tablatures, etc.

The Score Editor interprets the MIDI notes in the MIDI parts and displays them according to the settings you have made.

This is done in real time. Any change to the MIDI data or the settings is immediately reflected in the score.

You can enter and edit notes with the mouse or the computer keyboard, or you can record them with a MIDI keyboard. You can also use a combination of both. However, even if you have recorded the piece perfectly, your recording often requires some manual editing before printing.
