Music notation app that features a built-in text editor for writing code, thorough help documentation, a stave, audio player, PDF export, and more
MC Musiceditor proposes a reliable solution to artists who want to create musical scores within a digital environment. This is a portable software application that features a familiar text editor for writing musical notes, a stave, built-in audio player, PDF export, and more.
The advantages of portable programs
Since installation is not necessary, you can save the app directory anywhere on the disk and just click the executable to launch MC Musiceditor. Otherwise, you can copy it to a removable storage unit to directly run it on any other machine with minimal effort.
More importantly, it doesn’t alter Windows registry settings or create extra files on the disk, thus leaving no traces behind after removal.
Interactive interface with helpful documentation
The GUI is represented by a normal window with a clear-cut structure, showing the text editor and stave. You can immediately start writing musical notes and selecting them from the stave.
Before doing so, however, you can consult a help file (available both online and offline) to find out how to write code for clefs, keys, notes, accidentals, rests, the staff, time signature, bar lines, rhythms, beams, intervals, chords, voices, tempo, dynamics, text, lyrics, and so on.
Preview music and export the stave to PDF
It is possible to preview the musical composition in an integrated audio player so that you can make corrections if necessary, check out the stave representation in a PDF document and save it, use a metronome, insert headers, comments, line breaks and MIDI commands, as well as export the code to PDF, PostScript or MIDI format.
Evaluation and conclusion
The tool did not put a strain on computer performance throughout our tests, thanks to the fact that it needed low CPU and RAM to work properly. It bundles practical options and customization preferences for working with musical notations, so you can definitely give it a shot.
