I’d like to know some things about computerized musical engraving. There must be articles about this someplace, and I would be very grateful to be pointed in that direction. I’ve never done it before, so I know nothing about the systems that are available or how to use them. So my questions are:
1) What are the best systems (for me, that means easiest to learn!) for computerized notation?
2) How long does it take to learn how to use them?
3) Do these systems allow you to put pedals and pedal diagrams? Bowing indications for string instruments? Phrasing lines? Also- and this is really important- do these systems have an autocorrect system that can be turned off? Auto correct on my computer drives me nuts, and I don’t want a music system “correcting” what I want to put down.
4) How much do these systems cost? What kind of equipment do I have to have in order to make my own musical engravings?
I’m a MAC user. So I need something that can be used on a MAC.
