MakeMusic updates notation software packages

MakeMusic has released two new music notation software packages, Finale SongWriter 2010 and PrintMusic 2010. Each upgraded bundle includes improved compatibility with the latest operating systems and new features. SongWriter 2010 is geared towards teachers, students and musicians, providing tools for creating sheet-music with instrumentations of up-to 8 staves.

The latest version provides flexible chord input, simpler percussion notation, and more control over print options. The app also comes with hundreds of built-in sounds, and allows users to create MP3 files that can be uploaded to an iPhone, iPod touch, or other supported device.

PrintMusic 2010 offers many of the same features found in SongWriter 2010, along with music scanning, the ability to import or export graphics, and a new handwritten font.

Other features increase the number of staves that can be arranged up-to 28, and enable users to extract individual parts of the score. The update includes several of the same changes found in SongWriter 2010, as well as added support for VST/AU instrument and effects plug-ins, and new rehearsal marks.

Both software packages are compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, with SongWriter 2010 priced at $50 and PrintMusic 2010 set at $100.
