Copyist is music notation software that lets you create with ease tricky musical examples that more expensive and complicated programs trip over their feet trying to reproduce.
Because Copyist treats notes, staves, clefs and other musical characters as graphical elements, you've got the freedom to put musical objects on the page regardless of musical rules. This freedom allows you to easily create small excerpts to be included in work that is predominantly text, as well as very complex scores which are difficult to create using software which must follow musical rules.
Copyist works with your existing QuickScore files, giving you the power to fine-tune any score created in our award-winning music composition software QuickScore Elite or QuickScore Elite Level II simply by saving your work as a Copyist file and loading it into Copyist.
Copyist lets you save your scores as .BMP, TIFF, .EMF or .EPS files so that you can incorporate them into your Microsoft Word, Corel WordPerfect, Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe PageMaker and many other types of documents with a few mouse clicks.
