Finale SongWriter vs Finale PrintMusic

Postby susie » Sat Jul 10, 2010 8:03 am

I am very excited to discover this forum. I am just starting to use SongWriter to enter and try to arrange a piano arrangement of a song as a barbershop quartet arrangement instead. Several people I know use PrintMusic for this purpose instead. Which program would be better suited to this? Thanks for the help.

Up until the 2010 version, I would have said PrintMusic. However, the 2010 version of Songwriter has had a lot of the missing abilities added back in. Now, I see no reason that SW won't do barbershop arrangements just as well as PM.
