Music program,

I'd like to put in another plug for Musictime. This is a $50 program at 
Egghead and is the low-end music program in a line of pretty good 
programs.  I've a fairly recent version for Windows, and while there 
are some limitations (it ignores repeat symbols on playback), it does 
the main thing I wanted: I can put words below the notes and guitar 
chords or tabulature above them with reasonable formating. It will do 
all the things you've mentioned below.

| There is a program called 'musictime' that can do all of these things.
| I used to have a keyboard connected to a roland which I used to input
| music into music time, and then I would by hand edit the song to make
| it look like something reasonable.
| The version I have is several years old, and there are some problems...
| for starters, the notes and so forth are selected by clicking on a panel
| and dragging them to the appropriate clef. Slurs are nearly impossible
| to write. And sometimes it's snap to grid function  goes haywire.
| Anyway, I hope this helps.
