Editing the Music Notation

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The previous major sections of this Musician documentation describe how to edit the largest units of music data: the song, staves, and parts. This section, Editing the Music Notation, describes how to edit the symbol symbols that are displayed in a score or part.

If you have imported a MIDI into Musician, you can then quickly correct any transcription errors it might have made in determining note rhythms and accidentals. You can rearrange the music by deleting notes. You can also add lyrics and a wide variety of annotations, such as accent marks, dynamic marks, slurs, ornaments, and free text.

If your style of learning is to read about it first, then it is suggested that you read the introductory section on Basic Editing Procedures. It offers an overview of how to add and edit music symbols, and alerts you to the ways that Musician might differ from other software applications with which you are familiar.

The remaining sub-sections describe how you can add and edit all of the music symbols supported by Musician:
