This is why FORTE is the perfect tool for creating your sheet music

The user interface of the FORTE application is designed to be as intuitive as possible and is based on the well-known ideas you are already accustomed to from common Office products. The main display bundles the functions selected in the 13 main tabs and gives you direct access to them. This allows you to reach all the necessary notation tools quickly and maintain workflow with a minimum of clicks to invoke specific notation functions.

There are three versions: BasicHome and Premium. For every level of musical expertise and notation needs, you will find the right notation tool for you. With the full package, you can scan and edit physical scores with the ScanScore module, write full scores for orchestras with 32 instruments per system, use live recordings from your MIDI device to write your notation, create arrangements with the Bandora module, use the extensive sound library of FORTE Player, export audio files as MIDI playback and much more.

When you start the programme, the Score Wizard helps you set up the score and you'll have an elaborate list of instruments to choose from. FORTE has two basic modes: selection mode and insert mode, based on whether you are writing or editing your score.

Perhaps the most practical tool in this music notation software is the Input Palette. In the input palette you will find all the music notation elements available in FORTE to create a complete score. The compact presentation of all possible score contents in this palette makes working much easier and saves you long searching through the entire programme description.

When making scores, the unique Music Ruler helps you to enter your notes exactly to the right beat. The programme "thinks" in beats. That means there are no wrong bars, ever. This music notation software simply fills in the rests on its own to complete the bar. And you can simply go ahead with your lovely pieces of music....
