Sheet Music and Scores

Sheet Music and Scores

For music students, choirs or brass bands, scores of up to 2 systems can be arbitrarily scaled and formatted on the music sheet in the notation of MC-Light.

  • Notation freely saclable
  • Score and single parts remain in one file
  • display options of a single part are independent of the score
  • 9 different clef types can be selected
  • over 150 articulation, arrangement and auxiliary symbols
  • up to four-part polyphony representation
  • 64-track MIDI sequencer

Sheet Music from MIDI-Files

The combination of notation and MIDISequencer makes it easy to convert MIDI-Files into sheet music.

  • a MIDI file is automatically displayed as notation and MIDI sequence
  • any tracks of the MIDI-File can be displayed on a sheet of music
  • lyrics and chords of a MIDI-File can be displayed, changed and transposed on sheet music
  • missing lyrics and chords can be entered


Global Transposition of an entire song

The global transpose "shifts" the whole song with all note excerpts into a new key. The piece will then also sound in the new key. The chord notation is also transposed.

Transposing Single Voices in a score

Transposing voices only transposes the notation. However, when the piece is played, the base key still sounds.

  • global transposing of a whole song
  • transpose the chord notation
  • transpose individual voices in a score

Transposing Note Extracts

Each note extract can be transposed for any instrument. The range of +/- 24 semitones makes it possible to write notes for e.g. Bb, Eb or F instrument.

Transpose in MIDI-Sequencer

In the sequencer view of MC-Light, parts or tracks can be transposed as desired. In doing so, the notes are shifted to the new pitch.

  • transpose a note section
  • transpose a section of a piece over all tracks
  • transpose a whole track in the MIDI sequencer
  • transpose a part in the MIDI sequencer


The MIDI Sequencer

MIDI-Connections Score/Light/Free is not only a notation program but also a MIDI-Sequencer. A song in progress is always a MIDI-Song. The MIDI-Sequencer is the basis from which the different scores and single voices of a piece are derived. If something is changed in the notation, this also changes the database in the MIDI-Sequencer. So a change in the MIDI-Sequencer also has an effect in the notation view.

  • 64-track MIDI-Sequencer
  • Drumgrid-Editor
  • Piano-Roll-Editor
  • Event-Editor
  • Mixer-Page

Tracks and Parts

For each MIDI track there is a volume control, mute, boost and solo button. The master volume knob adjusts the volume of each track by percentage.

  • MIDI-Controller-Selection from the current device library
  • Volume knob
  • mute, boost and solo knob per track
  • transpose tracks

The individual tracks can be divided into Parts (sections) and moved, copied or transposed. Working with parts allows a quick "rebuilding" of existing tracks, which can be used as a basis for notation or as a new MIDI file.

  • move, cut, extend or copy parts
  • transpose parts
  • voice splitting of a part (separator)

Key and Drum-Editor

In the Key- and Drum-Editor notes and different controller data can be edited. Various quantize and length tools are available.

  • graphical controller editor
  • drum and key grid are scalable in x and y direction
  • notation in line view
  • pitchbend tools (curve selection, resolution..)
