A comprehensive app for music composition and editing

Harmony Assistant is a software application that helps to create and edit musical scores as well as extract parts from them. This app is popular among musicians and composers. It is easy to use, has a wide range of features, and is available in many languages.

Main functionality

Harmony Assistant combines many features in one powerful tool for those who want to compose their music or learn more about music composition:

  • To start quickly, you can find many document templates for your usual needs.

  • The Score Editor module is a powerful tool for creating, editing, and printing sheet music. For example, users can insert notes, rests, and dynamics into scores. They can also add text annotations, such as tempo markings or rehearsal marks.

  • Harmony Assistant enables two different note spacing modes: arithmetical and engraver mode. In Arithmetical mode, notes are evenly spaced on the staff according to their duration. Engraver mode takes into account both the period of notes and the aesthetics of the music sheet. This mode is handy for engraving professional-looking music scores.

  • The Digital Synthesizer comes with a library of built-in sounds and complex digital sound effects like reverberation, chorus, and others. These effects can be applied to any note or instrument in a score.

  • Harmony Assistant is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7 to 11. The app can also import and export music in the following formats: MIDI, Rich Midi, ABC, TAB, KAR, Yamaha PSR, AIFF, MP3, etc. Harmony Assistant can also read MOD and S3M files. For example, you can then easily convert a MIDI file to MP3.

  • If you have a MIDI keyboard or other controller, you can connect it to your computer and play or record music.

  • You can create your musical notation or arrangements directly using MyrScript scripting language. One of the great things about MyrScript is that it is straightforward to learn. Even if you have no prior experience with coding or programming, you should be able to pick it up relatively quickly.

  • Harmony Assistant also includes a complete library of chord diagrams.

Conclusions

Harmony Assistant is an excellent tool for composing and arranging music. The interface is user-friendly, and the features are robust. However, some users note that the notation features are not comprehensive, and the sound library is somewhat limited. Overall, this application is a great tool for musicians of all levels; the positives far outweigh the negatives.


Pros
  • User-friendly interface
  • Rich functionality
  • Multiformat support
  • Trial period
Cons
  • Lack of notation features
  • Limited sound library
