    • Very good and freeware. It allows me to write my music, export it in midi format file and upload it to Reaper DAW. It also allows me to import any midi I recorded within Reaper and instantly have a music score to share with fellow musicians. Guest • Feb 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • MuseScore is simpler and more flexible than Sibelius, and is under GPL, free-software, available for everybody, without restrictions. Its improving constantly, and you can use it at will. Lighter and so-much-less trouble maker than Sibelius. With open/standard formats: no locking-in. riveravaldez3 days ago Disagree   Agree
