Software Description

Laborejo is a music notation program.

It uses a lilypond GUI frontend and converts your notes into MIDI data to help you compose via notation. The goal of Laborejo is to provide a simple but effective design, you won't have to worry about the layout, just give the instructions and it will produce the output that requires very little post processing, if not none at all.

This program allows you to create music via notation and play it back without having to leave the notation based environment.
