This is my first post :) I am a hobbyist musician--I produce and compose hiphop/techno pieces as well as classical.
However, I have trouble finding the software I need. I would like to be able to make scores. I started years ago with Guitar Pro because I found it easy to work with. I now recently switched to Finale but I find it very hard to insert music from scratch, especially with a mouse.
I do have a midi keyboard, so what suggestions do you have? What software is best for transcribing ideas in my head, unto electronic scores?
In answering consider this:
- I play by ear
- I stupidly stopped music theory years ago and now struggle to read music above and below the 5 line pentagram.
- I liked guitar pro's way of being able to add notes by clicking on the keyboard on the screen...it really makes it easy for me
I hope to get some replies :)
