MakeMusic!(R) Inc. announced today the release of Finale SongWriter(TM), the latest addition to its family of innovative music notation software. Finale SongWriter allows users to quickly and easily compose and arrange music, hear their work and print premium-quality sheet music.
Created for songwriters of all levels, including those who may be new to notation software, Finale SongWriter offers a large array of powerful but easy-to-use features. Notes can be entered via a computer keyboard, a MIDI keyboard, or by importing MIDI files. Users can effortlessly add key and time signatures, lyrics, chords, guitar fingerboards, markings and musical instructions.
Additionally, Finale SongWriter can automatically generate two- and three-voice harmonies and drum grooves. The software also allows the user to create and edit guitar and bass tablature, save MIDI files and create MP3 files. Musicians can experiment with over 129 professional instrument sounds (a free professional software synthesizer is included). Songs sound like they’re being performed by live musicians thanks to “Human Playback(TM)”. All of these features come at an affordable price of $49.95.
