miniMusic NotePad is the leading music notation software for the PalmOS, suitable for the novice, student, or professional musician. You can write and edit music in several ways: enter notes directly onto the musical staff or have NotePad write it for you while you tap the keys of a virtual piano. Makes a great gift for your favorite musician, composer, music student or for you!
NotePad is powered by miniMusic's Krikit Audio Engine. With most handhelds running PalmOS 5 or later (palmOne Zire 31, 71, 72, Tungsten E, E2, C, T, T2, T3, T5, Treo600, 650, TapWave Zodiac, Sony Clie UX40, UX50, TH55, TJ35 and others) you can now write and play chords, counterpoint and different instrument sounds on your handheld without any additional hardware! Using miniMusic's SoundPad application you can design and edit you own instrument sounds for use with all Krikit powered software.
You can export songs as MIDI files to your desktop or onto any memory card (like SD cards and Memory Sticks). NotePad also supports models with built-in sound cards (like the Tapwave Zodiac, Sony T, TG, NR, NX, and NZ-series Clies or Handpring Visors with the Beat Plus Springboard module). Many handhelds can also be connected to MIDI hardware (like music keyboards, samplers, synthesizers, and more) with the proper cables and/or MIDI interface.
Other NotePad features: key signatures, triplets, dotted and tied notes, 3/4, 4/4, 5/8 and 7/8 time signatures, MIDI channels and instruments, beam songs to other Palm handhelds, chords and four tracks/voices (many older handhelds, OS 4 and earlier, can only play one note or voice at a time). Includes free upgrade and sample music library (Christmas, Classical, and Folk songs).
The demo version, "NoteDemo", only lets you save a single song, and it will not let you export songs. Otherwise it is identical to the full version and includes the complete documentation.
Some Clie users will need to turn "Hi Res Support" off for NotePad.
