The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 1.7
NoteWorthy Composer 220.127.116.11 is a software music composition and notation processor for Windows.
With this program you can write your own songs, or transcribe existing ones, using the notation editor, that allows you to create notation in a similar way to writing a document in a word processor. You can then add parts, notes, text, lyrics, and symbols. By using a note palette you can visually set most note attributes, with keyboard shortcuts for note entry.
The user can later play back the songs through the computer's sound card, or external MIDI setups. The program will show the notes highlighted as they are played.
An external MIDI keyboard can be also be used for entering your music. You can use the record button to record a song while it´s being played, and later polish it in the notation editor.
You can complete the score adding lyrics, bar lines, persistent notes. You can also transpose notes as you wish, insert tempo, etc.
The final score can be later printed out, or published in Internet.
