This online music notation software delivers advanced score writing and music composition features, including full support for guitar tablature, orchestral virtual instruments with professional sound quality, score templates, increased storage and advanced sharing permissions.
Crescendo features a new full palette of more than 40 professional orchestral, jazz and rock instruments. These new instruments include complete woodwind, brass and reed sections, as well as guitars, basses, percussion and solo/ensemble strings.
With support for guitar tab music, Crescendo users can create tablature from scratch, import XML tab from guitar tab software such as Guitar Pro, and convert MIDI files to tablature. The resulting tab files can be viewed in two different formats (rhythmically or in basic tab format), as well as edited and shared with other Crescendo customers. Users can also listen to guitar tab in their choice of new bass guitar, electric guitar and acoustic guitar sounds.
Score writing has also been expanded and simplified. Individuals can now use more than 35 stock templates to create and store hundreds of scores, choosing from different ensemble types, including a String Quartet.
Crescendo is available immediately. Individuals can gain access by subscribing or upgrading their existing free account for $49 per year.
