Sibelius - the leading music composition and notation software

Sibelius - the leading music composition and notation software | Music Typesetting | Scoop.it
The world's best-selling music notation software. Sibelius is the easy way to write, refine, hear, scan and print beautiful scores.
Charles Cave's insight:

Sibelius is the Rolls Royce of music typesetting. If I was using such a tool as part of my work then I would invest in this product.  The basic version for home use is a bit over $100 but if you are a student then academic pricing is an option.

LilyPond – Music notation for everyone: LilyPond... music notation for everyone
Charles Cave's insight:

Lilypond is a sophisticated typesetting system which is free. I tried it out after using MUP, but I got frustrated with the complexity of the language. I preferred the simplicity of MUP's language as I was able to get the results I desired - namely MIDI files and a good quality score.

Arkkra Enterprises - music publication software

Charles Cave's insight:

The first music typesetting system I use. MUP is compact and the entire language is well documented in a user guide of around 200 pages.   Much easier to use than Lilypond.
