Nope, never heard of it. I use Philip's Music Writer.

I'm not and, more disturbingly, I can't find anything about it on the internet. In fact, even the vendor's own website doesn't mention it, as far as I can see.

There are a number of well-known programs for this job, however:

Thanks for the input. Currently I am using Muse Score, I like it a lot, it's not available for Linux
though. I was using Forte 7, but not since I found Muse Score.

Likewise ...

When I "became serious" about learning how to compose music, I looked around for musical notation software. I decided to start with MuseScore, since it was "free and open-source and cross-platform and all of that," and then to move on to "real" (i.e. "commecial") products: Sibelius and Finale.

Well ... "I never left First Base." And, so far, I don't regret having [not ...] done so.

MuseScore does e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g that I need music-notation software to do. Therefore, although I certainly "have the money" to buy whatever commercial product I may wish to purchase, to do the job "better than MuseScore can," I quite frankly have never felt the need to further pursue the matter ... at all.

Thanks for your perspective on this.

I am always interested in other musical notation software, but MuseScore does everything I need at this time. I have the basic version of Forte, which they offered for free.
Recently they offered the home version at 1/2 price, $47.00. I bought it and tried it for
a couple of days, had nothing but problems. I requested a refund, which they complied with
quickly, they do honor the no question, 30 day return policy. All I really want is a good
product and I'm willing to pay for it.
MuseScore is adequate for my needs at this time, but I like experimenting with other
products.
