Music notation software has transformed the music industry. It has streamlined the process of making music for arrangers, composers, producers and aspiring musicians who aren’t trained in music.
Composing music has become easier through music notation software for professionals. It saves them time and money.
Music notation software has opened doors for people who love music but don’t have background in music. Even if they don’t play instruments and may not know how to read sheet music – they can still create scores using music notation software.
There are a few advantages that music notation software has over making music the traditional way.
1) Instant playback
The software allows instant playback. Before, composers spent time playing their music and then writing it down (the other way around works too). In case changes had to be made, the music would have to be written again. With the software, you can make as many changes as you want without taking much time.
2) Sharing music
The greatest benefit of making music digitally is that it can be shared online. Traditional methods of making music required playing the music, recording it and then creating multiple copies before sending it out via mail. With the software, multiple copies don’t need to be made; the single version can be shared with as many people as you want within a matter of minutes.
3) No need to engrave by hand
You know what sheet music looks like right? Can you imagine how long it would take to engrave by hand? There’s no need to physically write down any music with music notation software.
4) Eases collaboration
As a composer each track involves you working with many musicians. With music notation software you can you can collaborate with people from all over the world because tracks can be sent and received over the web.
5) Do it all yourself
If you don’t want to, you don’t need to collaborate at all. By using the software you can use the sounds of numerous instruments without knowing how to actually play them.
6) Input music using MIDI instruments
When composers do have to call in experts for specific tracks, they can input the tracks with the help of MIDI instruments so it can be easily mixed with the other digital tracks.
