It isn't the cost that scares me about Finale but more the time it will take for me to spin up on it and that much of that sw will never be used. I have never heard anyone say anything nice about the UI or learning curve of this sw. I don't want to write orchestral arrangements. Just simple guitar stuff. Did you find it easy to use? Does it do guitar strings? (Like numbers with circles around them, etc)jab1123 wrote:I use Finale for guitar - nice for classical in that it deals easily with notes having more than one value. It does have it's odd quirks. I purchased it in 2003 and have not upgraded it - at that time I think it was ~ 180 USD.
