  1. i use capella and it is fantastic for transposing. it is a very good software to start with, again as it is quite cheap and easy to use.

    it is the same price as sibelius student and it is much better.

    Sibelius note entry...

    Sibelius is lightning fast at entering music if you have your left hand on the qwerty numeric keys to enter note lengths, and your right hand on a black'n'white keyboard to enter the pitches. And even without the black'n'white keyboard connected, it's possible to enter music pretty fast - right hand on the numeric keypad to enter note durations, beaming, accidentals and so on, and left hand entering the letter names for the pitches. Trying to do it at speed by pecking with the mouse is slow I'd agree, but I don't think many people enter their music with the mouse once they've passed the beginner stage with Sib.

    Never used Finale so I can't compare.
