has anyone else out there tried Rosegarden (linux music application) for editing midi lately ?
I had previously assumed the music notation features were just for printing out sheet music, but that assumption was incorrect.
Sure it can print out scores but it turns out that some of those features are also actually powerful EDITING features for the music itself!
powerful features for working with keys, scales, chords, etc
and the "pitch tracker" feature ! .. never seen anything like that before!
(eg try it on an arpeggio! - its an interesting tool which can help you create some interesting variations in your music!)
Rosegarden might not be your cup of tea if you only ever work with audio (and never midi) but if you do work with or are willing to experiment with midi in any way or just on the lookout for interesting new ways to explore ideas in your music definately have a look at this one!
don't assume its "just like" anything else - it isn't
