MC Musiceditor is free/open source (GPLv2) music notation software (Windows). It has been developed with only one purpose: to make life of musicians easier when making scores. This results in a userfriendly editor which makes professional scores without requiring specific knowledge (other than musical basics)! In short: MC Musiceditor is the easiest way to write, refine, hear
and print professional scores.
MC Musiceditor uses a modification of the ABC-language which was invented by Chris Walshaw. The ABC language is simple to use and can create music scores from basic melodies to a complex symphony score. Our modification of the ABC-language makes it, in our opinion, all easier (why? Part 1 - Part 2).

It is very easy to use

in your texteditor)
The scriptbased editor enables you to manipulate data with a great ease
It has an external previewer, that refreshes itself constantly. So you see what you have composed!
The sheet music (PDF) is of a high quality.
