Overview

Designed especially with song writers in mind, Finale SongWriter is the fast, easy way to create and print professional-quality sheet music.
Enter notes with your mouse, computer keyboard, or MIDI device - or import MIDI and/or MusicXML files. Create great-sounding and -looking sheet music that plays back, then share your music in more ways than ever before.

When inspiration strikes, you want to notate it quickly
Simply play your MIDI keyboard and music automatically appears in SongWriter. Or if you prefer, enter notes with your computer keyboard or mouse.

Create music with others

Work with collaborators? SongWriter can help here too, even if your band mates use different software. SongWriter can open files made by the entire family of Finale software like Finale PrintMusic and Finale Allegro, as well as import MIDI and MusicXML files created by hundreds of other products.

Sounds
SongWriter offers professional instrument sounds, realistic playback, and creative inspiration. Hear your notes as you enter them, then press Play to hear how they interact. This instant feedback empowers you to quickly shape the music of your imagination.

But SongWriter does more than make sounds. SongWriter makes music - and even offers creative suggestions.

Your music deserves to be heard with all the feeling and phrasing you imagined when you wrote it. Human Playback makes this possible by playing your music with the nuance and expression of human performers. When Human Playback is combined with the high-quality software instrument sounds built into SongWriter, the results are amazing.

Arrange your song with creative input
Need help harmonizing your melody? Not sure what the drummer should play? No problem.

SongWriter offers composers and arrangers idea-generating tools to save time and suggest creative options. Band-in-a-Box Auto-Harmonizing can automatically turn your melody into two- or three-voice harmony. Use Drum Groove to easily add custom drum parts in a variety of styles.

Mix your recording
An integrated mixer lets you further shape the sonic space where your music lives. You control reverb, panning, balance, and more.

Best Uses

    Comments about Makemusic Finale SongWriter Software Download:

    I use Songwriter to take down my demo ideas and put them in concrete tablature and chord structures to better translate to the band. We hit the ground running now when it comes to incorporating new tunes in the line-up. Also, it's great for hashing out melodies that you have an idea where you want to take it, but can't hear it out. Great product, A++ would buy again.
