Old notation software

Post by OCTO »

Being inspired by Den with this post viewtopic.php?p=7178#p7178 I am thinking we could be a little bit nostalgic and post pictures and screenshots of old software/hardware.

Here is Score Perfect Pro for Atari:

Thanks OCTO. Very nostalgic times ..
Later there was a PC version with Klaus. And .... after Klaus' death, the program also died.
The website no longer exists (Scoretec).
I think the latest version was 7.5 and it was good!

Does anyone still use MusiXTeX? I didn’t think so until I realized that the documentation (http://icking-music-archive.org/softwar ... sixdoc.pdf) was updated in January …

Look at this old thing from 20 years ago. It's amazing how things have changed since then.

I know that! Train for “transport”, speeding quaver for “fast note entry” etc. :D
However Finale Allegro 98 had less colorful icons …

I think we can think about 32 years now, this "one measure" was legendary:

I didn't know that Sibelius 7 was the initial release of the software, back in 1986. After that, Sibelius 6 was released! And not so less advanced output:
