MuseScore – the open alternative for Finale and Sibelius

August 9, 2010

I was looking for a good, open source, and easy to use alternative for Finale and Sibelius that i could use on both my Mac and Ubuntu installations to do my music notations.
At first i was stuck with the not-so-comprehensive Lilypond music notation software. I thought “there must be a better alternative, where i can use WYSIWYG editing mode” and yes, that existed in Musescore.
There are packages available for Mac OSX, Linux and Windows and source.
The program is very intuitive to use, if you ever used finale or sibelius before. All functions you need are there. Also there are numerous export formats supported, like lilypond, musicXML, pdf, png and a lot of others.

strongly recommended!
