Frederick Noad Software
For your Macintosh computer
For those who own Macintosh computers Frederick Noad
has developed a music scoring program that is particularly well adapted for
writing music for the guitar and lute. In addition to all the usual symbols for
bars, circled string numbers, chord boxes etc. the program even contains the
letters of French tablature as used by composers of the 16th and 17th centuries.
(For Best Results Use OS 8.6 to 9.2 In Classic
[We cannot guarantee that this software will work properly with OS above 9.2]
The Note Check feature
SpeedScore is like a word processing program for music, and
like word processors your "spelling" can be checked by the computer.
Just passing a cursor over the notes gives you the sound of the notes, making
errors quickly apparent to the ear. This is known as "Scrub
Playback".. Other improvements include excellent printing to Epson
printers, improved reliability etc..

arrangement of J.S. Bach's "Bourree in E Minor" set in SpeedScore.
SpeedScore was written up in the Macintosh Music and
Sound Bible. The author, Christopher Yavelow, wrote
"It is difficult to imagine a program that is
simpler to operate and yet as powerful as SpeedScore".
