The only reason I haven't used it (yet) is that I just haven't gotten to
it. I really hope he decides to keep it alive because my only experience
with a good notation program was when I had an Amiga computer. I created
several projects by converting sheet music into actual scores that I was
able to use while I played guitar and sang. I got actual jobs from using
When I get to that point again (I'm working on my contibution to LAD), I
will love to have noteedit to be able to reproduce what I did on the
Amiga and have the scores find their way into future projects.
Of course a light-weight note editing program is of value. Those other
progams that offer a notation feature are great. But who wants to go
thru the pains of just getting it to start correctly just because you
wanted to transfer notes from a page to actual music? And even if it
starts right up without making you configure unrelated stuff, then it's
just too bloated for a single task like transfering notes from a page to
a program to create an actual musical score. And what about all the
dependencies one would have to track down just to get a full featured
program (with a notation feature) up and running?
I just had to speak up. I really hope he keeps noteedit alive...
