      Dear T P Johnston Jr,

      thank you for your message.
      You’ll receive the link and password for the video course via email.
      We’re taking in our customers’ request and therefore are still working on the video.
      You’ll have it in a couple of days.

      Kind regards,

    I have no clue what Forte 9 is. Is it a course? How could a course come in a box? Is it music-related?

    • FORTE Admin - December 7, 2017 Reply

      Hi Mary,

      FORTE 9 is a program for your computer to write music.
      Like Word is a program to write texts 🙂

      We offer download versions (meaning you’ll receive a link to download the program)
      and box versions at amazon (meaning you’ll order a box with a CD containing the program at amazon.com).

      Kind regards,

    I purchased the upgrade for Forte 9 home edition, but I apparently did not receive the link and code for the video course. Would you be so kind as to send it to me please? Thanks in advance, Bernard Hazelton

      Dear Bernard,
      I’m going to send you your personal activation key and download link for FORTE 9 Home in a separate email.
      If the email does not arrive in your inbox, please remember to check also your spam or junk email folder.

      Kind regards,

    How can I scan sheetmusic with Forte8. Do I need to buy it first ?
    Scanner not installed, go to the website. Then nothing.

    I have bought Forte 9 premium and loaded it on one laptop. I want to use it on another laptop at home. Can I use my Activation key to use on my second version or would I have to buy a separate copy
