Write music partitions.

Postby linuxviolin » Thu Sep 06, 2007 5:21 pm

Being a musician I use in Windows XP Coda Finale, a great professional program, when I want copy or write music.
I wish to know if it exists for Linux a program like it.

It's for classical music: orchestra, chamber music etc… no rock :wink:

Thanks in advance.

checkout the ubuntustudio.org distro.
it has great music apps.
you may find what you want there and just install it off synaptic.

but check out http://www.rosegardenmusic.com/ first.

:D

Thanks Boo. I will test Rosegarden when I would have a little more time, I thought that it did not write partitions, scores... Shame on me! :oops:

My friend got Finale working in wine, he just had to go into the audio section of winecfg and change Hardware Acceleration to Emulation, and check the Driver Emulation box.. :D
I think it did crash every once in a while, though :(

i dual boot mint with 64studio, seems to be a good music making distro, has rosegarden, and ardourGTK which is good for mixing tracks, and the kernel has been configured for realtime capablities, so you can record instruments through the mic input
