SCORE is the industry standard for any type of music printing - from simple string quartets and songs to large scale symphonic forms and avant garde scores. For over 20 years running on the DOS platform it has been the choice of most engravers and copyists throughout the world because of the quality of output, and the ease and speed with which changes can be made to a score. This new and long awaited Windows version will fulfil many of the requests made by users to bring SCORE up to date in a modern working environment. It is a page-based system and works just like a book, so you can be sure that if you put a note on a particular page it will still be on the same page and at exactly the same position the next time you view it. It is you the user who is in control, not the computer!
