    Misleading

    By lovetoworship

    from Boise, Idaho

    I purchased Finale for guitar a few years back. It has never worked. Finale made it sound like all you had to do was plug into a sound card and start playing. Well it doesn't with an electric guitar unless it has a MIDI pick up and the correct MIDI interface compatible with the expensive 13 pin to 5 pin adapters. If you are limited in music notation knowledge like I am Don't buy this program unless you have the duckets to pay the 600 or so to buy the MIDI stuff then remember your guitar has to be modified to fit the MIDI pickup. Good Picking

    Great composition software!

    By oolceeoo

    from Linwood, NJ

    I've been using this program for about a week now, and all I can say is that it is the best composition software that I have ever used. The features that this software has are endless, able to compose entire scores for any type of music for any purpose. Well worth the price, I would recommend it to any aspiring composers as well as professionals, very intuitive and powerful!
