  • Notation Software

    Can anyone point me at drum part notation software please. I've downloaded a few demos but they don't let you scribe drum parts and are much more sophisticated than I am looking for - ties to midi playback etc. I want to produce traditional notation rather than tabs.

    Sibelius is not cheap but if you know a teacher somewhere there is an Educational price also which was about 1/2 price.

      I use Score Writer. It is very inexpensive and it allows you to do all those goofy things that are common in drum notation--weird note heads (x's for example), stems up regardless of position on staff etc.

      Score Writer can read (and edit) midi files too.

          the question was for drum notation & not TAB
          + musedit was in the list already
          So? What's the problem? All of these are useful for drum notations and/or tabs, and maybe someone else reading the post will want to try them. So there was a repeat. So what? It's from a list I have and I didn't have the time or inclination to edit it. Are we running short of space on the forum?

              Thanks guys - I've now got a PC full of notation software demos - and a busy weekend ahead I guess. Forum came up trumps yet again.
