      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,
      Barbara

      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,
      Barbara

    Hello,

    Can FORTE transpose a score that I have scanned in? Or only a score that has been input manually?

    Thank you,
    Kelly

      Hey there Kelly,

      once the score is digitized and you opened it in the notation software, you can transpose it just like you would do with a score that you wrote manually.

      Kind regards,

    Hi,

    So what I would like to do is be able to scan sheet music and have it transposed to E flat or B flat Sax music.
    Yes I should have paid better attention in school during music theory……!!!!!!!!!!! Since that was like over 40 years ago I still play all the time . but want to have ability to branch out on what I play. What would you suggest is best for that? And are your downloads . IOS . friendly?

    Thank you for your help,
    Kathleen

      Dear Kathleen,

      thank you for your comment.
      Sorry for getting back to you so late!
      If you wish to scan and transpose music, you’ll need FORTE Premium.
      At the moment, FORTE is optimized for Windows 7, 8 and 10.
      So, unfortunately, it’s not “iOS-friendly”. You’d need bootcamp to run the program:

      Dear Elias,
      please deactivate the VST plugin.
      Then open the track properties (double-click the staff) and select the voice aahs / oohs.

      Kind regards,
      Your FORTE team
