This section of the Musician documentation describes how to work with song files as a whole. Other sections of the documentation describe how to edit details of the music and the score.

Musician reads and writes the following file formats: MIDI (.mid), Karaoke (.kar), and the Notation (.not) file type used by Notation Musician.

You can open a MIDI or Karaoke file already on your system or use Musician's built-in Internet browser to download, unzip (if necessary), and open the file. If you associate Musician with the MIDI .mid filename extension and Karaoke .kar, then when you double-click on a MIDI or Karaoke file name in a directory listing or on a web page, Musician will automatically start and the file will open in Musician's window.

When you open a MIDI or Karaoke file, you can select various transcription options to control the MIDI-to-notation results. If you are not happy with the results of the transcription, you can use the Re-Transcribe command to try out different transcription options.

You can view multiple songs at a time, and copy and paste sections between them.

You can print one score part at a time, or a range of measures for a given part. You can also print several separate parts with one command. Musician also exports High Resolution PDF files that you can share.


Musician offers a variety of options for enjoying and studying music during playback, for listening to multiple songs in a playlist (jukebox), and practicing your instrument or voice with accompaniment.
