Said about LilyPond as an alternative


Lilypond provides everything a graphical interface such as Musescore could provide and more. The fact it uses a markup language to export a pdf. MusicXMl, midi, or svg from makes it extremely accessible. The learning curve is a bit harsher, but it pays off so much.

You have full control over the engraving and score edition process and the results are the best available.
