You are ready to begin composing right after installing the program, without a lengthy learning period.

There are 8 standard channels for composing the instrumental section, plus 4 percussion channels for composing background rhythms, or repetitive motifs.
Instruments include 120+ standard and 30+ percussion instruments. Notes are drawn by holding down the cursor while moving the mouse. Every note on every channel can play a different instrument, in a range that covers the full spectrum of audible tones, 10 octaves. Many editing functions, like Erase, Copy, Cut, Paste, Overwrite, Insert, etc. are handled from a right-click menu, so you get right down to the main task of editing your score, with little or no fuss.
