    Music notation software

    I want to write out notes on staffs in a very nice, neat, organized way. I'd prefer to do this on computer rather than using a pen.

    Does anyone know of a good, simple, cheap software program that does this? I'm not looking to transcribe anything or convert midi files...

    Thanks

    Try power-tab... It's what most of us use for sharing notation here at IBM.

    It's too bad PowerTab is Windows only. I'm a Mac user and it would be very helpful to at least be able to open the file in another program.

    "Cheap" is a relative term. Here is a program I use that is 100 bucks. Here is the link..

    http://www.finale.com/printmusic/

    They have a free version called Finale notepad also. Great program...

    There is another one called Allegro that also does guitar tab I think...

    I say cheap is a relative term because the full blown version of Finale is like 600 dollars so 100 bucks is "cheap"..
