On November 24th we will launch FORTE 9!

At the moment we are working on a new product design and a new user interface for FORTE 9. Have a look at our first FORTE 9 preview.

The re-designed user interface with over 120 new icons makes FORTE a lot easier to use. In the next weeks we will show you all new features of FORTE 9.
Stay tuned and check your emails from time to time so you won’t miss a thing.

We are looking forward to your comments below!

    I am currently a Forte 8 user; will Forte 9 be available to us at a discounted rate? I am interested in the Home version.

      Dear Vic,
      of course there’ll be special upgrade rates for you.

      Kind regards,
      Your FORTE Team

    Hey c’mon, you only just launched 8.5 so now you expect us to upgrade to v9.0 ???

    The discount had better be good or i’m out of here. There are other softwares around ……..

      Dear Jerry,
      FORTE 8.5 Basic was free, right? 🙂
      And of course you’ll get a special upgrade rate for FORTE 9.

      Kind regards,
      Your FORTE Team

    Will there be improvements over the clumsy and inefficient editing functionality of Forte 8 Premium? Will Forte 9 have the ability to select measures by clicking and dragging with the mouse, for example?

    • FORTE Admin - November 14, 2017 Reply

      Dear James,
      thank you for your question.
      There’ll be some improvements on the editing and playback functions.
      You’ll also be able to ctrl+c/ctrl+v measures.
      Maybe you’ll just give it a try.
      The new trial versions of FORTE 9 will be available on November 24th.

      Kind regards,
      Your FORTE Team

    Is it possible to pre-order the newest version? I wanted to give it as a gift.

    I wrote my first scores with Forte 7 Home. My skills are growing and am interested in upgrading to Forte 8 Premium.

    However, with Forte 9 Premium rolling out in 10 days, will I have to upgrade to 8 Premium first and then upgrade again to 9 Premium? Or, should I simply wait these few days for Forte 9 to come out and then upgrade directly from 7 Home to 9 Premium?

    • FORTE Admin - November 14, 2017 Reply

      Dear David,
      thank you for your comment and for your interest in FORTE!
      We’d recommend you wait just a few more days for FORTE 9.


      Looking forward to you!
      Your FORTE Team

    Does the guitar fretboard support the same new features as the virtual keyboard? (lighting up the notes as the score is played back?)

    • FORTE Admin - November 20, 2017 Reply

      Hi Marc,
      thank you for your question.
      At the moment, the fretboard does not light up.
      But that’s a good idea.
      We’ll discuss it with the team…

      Kind regards,
      FORTE Team

    Can Forte 9 notate from a recording made on a regular piano?

    • FORTE Admin - November 21, 2017 Reply

      Dear Wayne,
      thank you for your question.
      Unfortunately, that’s not possible.

      Kind regards,
      FORTE Team

    Will some of the new features of 9 be included in the Basic/Free versions?

    I am trying the premium version and would like to print out the manual. The present link does not seem to work. Could you please rectify this ASAP?
