Hi, Mark,

I love my MidiNotate, and would not want to be without it. As a college teacher specializing in music from many countries and in many languages, I find it much easier to get music in midi form on the web than to go out and buy sheet music. (You can understand that it would be hard to walk out to the local music store to buy something in Zulu or a Bosnian gypsy dialect.) So I use MidiNotate. I am really looking forward to the final version. I upload my MidiNotate files to Finale, which will read Midi files, and there I produce the final choral arrangements. It's a great setup! I have downloaded the trial version of Composer, but have not had time yet to play around with it much.

I recently bought Intelliscore, which is supposed to make midi files from CD's. I shelled out my money (nearly $80), and started working with the software. By the way, the trial version of Intelliscore is so limited you can't give the program any kind of in-depth trial with it. I went ahead and risked buying the software, and it think I got stuck.

Since Intelliscore makes the midi, I used MidiNotate to make the sheet music from the generated midi files. I have recently written to Intelliscore, telling them that I think I have really wasted my money, since the program is not only a pain to use (you have to sit and mouse-click through the piece like a metronome), and then the midi file was garbled and unusable in nearly all the cases I tried. The software did not pick up a great many notes, and what it did pick up just made no musical sense. If I had just wanted to record the CD for listening purposes, it would have been fine, but that's not what I bought the program for. Anyhow, I have received no reply at all from Intelliscore. Complete silence. The MidiNotate/Intelliscore interface seems to work fine, but since Intelliscore has not produced usable midi files for me, I don't recomend their program. Pity
