Hi Bob,
the OCR in Finale Print Music is a basic module, as I mentioned, and not as accurate as smart score. It is a great bonus feature for the occasional scan, but not perfect. Smart score can get 99% results first time on good resolution originals, but then it costs more money.

The easiest program from the user interface perspective is sibelius, which is way out of this price range, but I would say Finale was probably next in line.

Hi all. My old outdated Music printing program will not work with XP.

Can you give me your suggestions as to a good, simple, Music Notation Program that you use to enter the notes, etc., and then print out the song.

Thanks, very much.

Hi Larry,I have just listened to your Medley on the 20-1 Disk 2, it is real good, about a Music Notation prgram, what I have in mind is a simple program to print music from MIDI files, just the Melody line and the Chord Symbols, I have tried Sibelius-Cakewalk-Cubase VST-Lime and many others and the best I can find so far is Midi-Connections from BCK Products,England, Email: if any of our members can let me know of any other program that will do this I would be much obliged, all the best to one and all.

Maybe something for you. There is a programm called RMCA. It it is combination of Band in a Box and Styleworks form EMC

A style-creatopr (o.a. from midifiles) and chord generator. Also the possibility to print a leadsheet.

Thanks a million to all.

After trying many, many different programs (all were very good) I find that I like the LIME system as best for me. I'm sure it will fill all my needs.

Thanks again and again.
