See, I have this magnum opus -- a big musical (20+ characters, over 80 minutes of music total). For a first "concert" production of it last year, it took me over a month to use Personal Composer to create a vocal score.
This year, I am preparing a full production (23 piece orchestra, etc.). The orchestrations are finished (in MIDI files) but I need a condensed piano/vocal score for rehearsals. That's about 350 pages of score. Cakewalk Professional is out of the question, can't handle it. Personal Composer would take months.
MidiNotate did it in a WEEK! Yeah, I don't have dynamics marked, but those can be added as we work. Only a very occasional incorrect timing on a note and a few lyric glitches (it seems to move the first word of the lyric in a part a bar forward.)
It also comes very close to handling the full orchestration that quickly, but I can't format the page well enough to ensure that the full staff always fits on a 8 1/2 X 14. I am VERY interested in MidiNotate Composer, if I can adjust individuals pages. If it does come out this summer, I'm hoping I can produce the finished score with the same ease I've done the condensed score.

Your musical sounds like quite an ambitiuous work in terms of composing and writing, not to mention score preparation.
In preparing the condensed piano/vocal score, I assume you used the Merge Tracks and Split Hands command, and shifted notes between the left and right piano staves to refine the choices that MidiNotate make with the Split Hands command. Right?
I'm pleased that MidiNotate that has helped you with your musical. I'm not ready to make announcements about the MidiNotate Composer's release date and features, but I wish it were ready and in your hands today!

A robot spammer. A waste of bandwidth and energy on both sides.

Hello Bill and David,
I've taken some measures in the forum software to hopefully eliminate a lot of this spam. You won't be seeing nearly as much forum spam... for a while... until spammers figure out another way to annoy us, and then I'll have to waste some more valuable time countering that.
