Okay, so back in November-ish I downloaded Finale Notepad...
And it's been driving me batty for a few months now.

It comes down to two questions now...
1. Are there any better free (or somewhat cheap) programs out there?
2. A friend offered to make a copy of Encore for me... how legal is that?

It's quite illegal and i don't think you should, spend some money (it's worth it), and buy sibleus 5, or an older verison.

Yeah, I figured it was pretty illegal so I said no, much as I wanted it.

Right now I use Finale Note pad, only because it's free. I need a new programme to.

Trust me, the demo is nothing compared to the real thing, i spend all my free time on it, when i have free time that is!!

It's TOTALLY WORTH IT!!

I use Finale Notepad 2007. I must admit there are some features that I would love to have, but if you don't mind having pieces all in one time sig and one key sig, then it's decent. If it's just something you like tinkering around on, then Finale Notepad should suffice. If it's something you care passionately about and it's your job, then I strongly suggest getting one of those expensive programs. It'll be worth it.

This may be rather unprofessional for some reason but i tend to use Guitar Pro 5 when i'm writing, It's quite easy to get to grips with.

There are others i guess but i haven't heard of any.
