Whether it's in the smooth, measured hand of Mozart, or the frantic chicken scratchings of Beethoven, if you're a serious composer or arranger and want people to be able to help you to realize your artistic vision, you've got to be able to put your musical ideas down on paper. Getting those ideas in black and white can be a challenge. Whether it's page after page of manuscript paper itself to have to keep track of and organized, the writing of the notes, time signatures, and other musical notation, or most importantly the ability of your performers to actually read your writing, it's always going to be a challenge. A tool like Forte can help you to hear with your ears what you can already hear in your head.

Forte is a musical notation tool that lets you compose and write music on your computer. You can easily edit your work, including drag and drop capabilities. Transpose an entire piece, or just one instrument or voice, making it easier to replace that F horn with the E-flat one you really wanted. You can generate midi files as well, so if the Philharmonic isn't available to play your masterpiece, you can at least listen to an electronically-generated version.

Forte is a Windows application. It works best on systems running Windows 2000 or later.
