SoundNotion 204: More Right Than Others

This week on SoundNotion, the panel is joined by the Product Marketing Manager for Steinberg‘s in-development scoring application Daniel Spreadbury (AKA Papa SMuFL). Things get nerdy fast in this interview and that’s the way we like it.

    Notation software when used by the ‘pros’ and those who spend years mastering it works well, I’m sure . But for the average musicians/ composer/arranger,…etc Almost all of the big boy notation programs are cumbersome at least. Items like StaffPad offer light at the tunnel’s end though.

      Thanks for listening, kritikosman. I’m glad that those introductory applications exist, especially at the lower price points. It’s a great way for people to get started writing music, but my concern is that they limit the user’s creativity. This isn’t a limitation of StaffPad, but in the very early days of music notation software, changing meters was very difficult. If I was starting to write music at that time, I would never written music that changed meters. The tools we use affect the work we make, and more importantly, the way we think about it.
