Whether you’re composing for a live performance, movie, television or your own project, these additional tools are sure to help you create the sound you need.

The annotate feature is great for those that prefer composing on the fly. Create reminders for yourself about music changes as you’re composing, or offer up edits and feedback to others. Annotate allows you to draw directly on the score using a mouse, trackpad, USB tablet or Surface Pro 3 Pen.

Annotations are grouped together and automatically attach to the bar you add them to, so you don’t need to worry about losing your notes.

Multi-touch Gestures
Working on a laptop with a trackpad or using a Surface Pro 3? Now you can get the most out of your technology using touch capabilities. Zoom in and out of your score with a ‘pinch-zoom’ gesture. You can even set it so your zoom levels are predetermined and will zoom in and out with a quick double-tap.

Surface Pro 3 Pen Support

Add and edit notes with a tap of the pen, and play music in real time using the tablet’s onscreen keyboard and fretboard. Other features for the Surface Pro 3 Pen include: using buttons to select, erase and edit your music, as well as the ability to drag the score around and resize object while inputting notes.
