MIDI Connections Light is the small version of MIDI Connections Score.
The structure and operation of the editors is identical to the score.
The functionality is however somewhat reduced.
You will find demos of the latest programme version under Download/Demos. The documentation can also be PDFdownloaded as PDF.
The program images of this page can be enlarged with a mouse click.
For music students, choirs or brass bands, scores of up to 2 systems
can be arbitrarily scaled and formatted on the music sheet in the notation of MC-Light.
The combination of notation and MIDISequencer makes it easy to convert
MIDI-Files into sheet music.
The global transpose "shifts" the whole song with all note excerpts into a new key. The piece will then also sound in the new key. The chord notation is also transposed.
Transposing voices only transposes the notation. However, when the piece is played, the base key still sounds.
Each note extract can be transposed for any instrument. The range of +/- 24 semitones makes it possible to write notes for e.g. Bb, Eb or F instrument.
In the sequencer view of MC-Light, parts or tracks can be transposed as desired. In doing so, the notes are shifted to the new pitch.
MIDI-Connections Score/Light/Free is not only a notation program but also a MIDI-Sequencer.
A song in progress is always a MIDI-Song. The MIDI-Sequencer is the basis from which
the different scores and single voices of a piece are derived. If something is changed
in the notation, this also changes the database in the MIDI-Sequencer. So a change in the
MIDI-Sequencer also has an effect in the notation view.
For each MIDI track there is a volume control, mute, boost and solo button.
The master volume knob adjusts the volume of each track by percentage.
The individual tracks can be divided into Parts (sections) and moved, copied or transposed. Working with parts allows a quick "rebuilding" of existing tracks, which can be used as a basis for notation or as a new MIDI file.
The band part of MIDI Connections contains a "five-man band" as a training partner.
Choose from an abundance of 70 music styles, such as Swing, HipHop, Pop, Rock ...
Whether you are a trumpeter, guitarist or pianist – it makes practicing fun!
The program also contains unique tools that save the user a lot of work.
The GuitarExpert is an external program to manage guitar or ukulele symbols.
Any number of libraries can be created.
In order to listen to a music program, the computer must be connected to
sound devices. The sound device is usually the PC internal sound generator.
But external synthesizers or MIDI expanders can also be used. The device
library can be adapted to such MIDI-Expanders.
