Finale NotePad 2007 is a version of the famous music notation software Finale developed by MakeMusic. This version of Finale NotePad allows you to make simple scores, with a number of basic features borrowed from its sibling Finale. It's also critical to compatibility, since users who don't own Finale can open any file made with a Finale-family program in NotePad.
Finale NotePad offers many powerful and timesaving features for music educators, students and hobbyists, including compatibility with Finale 2007 files. The software is especially popular with educators, allowing them to create assignments in Finale and share these creations with their students via NotePad. Like Finale, NotePad includes more than 128 professional-grade sounds from the award-winning SmartMusic practice system - these sounds ensure that playback is consistent between users of NotePad and Finale.Finale NotePad® 2007 now includes native support for both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macintosh as well as Windows computers.
