    Hi all, I am looking for software to print some music out.
    BUT, all I want to do is play a single note on a keyboard (pref via the computer keyboard,on screen) and for that note to appear as a single dot on the correct ledger lines. No crotchets or Quavers just dots.
    Does any software exist.

    I think most music software will allow you to take the stems off notes, I use Finale and there is a facility to do what you are asking in the global set up menu.

    Ditto for sibelius. I don't know about musescore. If it can, it has the advantage of being free.

    Music Publisher v.8 (Braeburn Software) allows you to type in the note (type 'C' for C, for example), which by default will be a crotchet. And then, by typing 'O', the stem is removed. So, two key strokes required for each 'single dot'.

    In MuseScore

    Right Click 'anything' and select 'set invisible'

    = gone.

    I also use this for lead/pickup bars ...or pause bars

    Capella will definitely let you do theis Gregorian Chant kind of music. you can specify stems or no stems; and different note heads too.

    I too have found capella very useful.

    It seems to have quiet a small user base though. Thats three of us then!

    First I have heard of Capella, for those using it, how does it compare in relation to Finale and Sibelius in general terms?

    Capella is significantly cheaper, and if what you want is a tool that you can write music in it does the job. But where it is lacking is in its playback. You only get the soundcard instruments (whilst I believe full Sibelius has sampled sound examples?).

    No complaints though. it produces good looking scores and sheets, ant I suppose the proof of the pudding is I am on my 3rd Version.

    I created my own empty scores for SA Instrumentation (Gen/Fes, Triumph, UNity, and Tune book).

    You can get it inthe UK from a company called software partners; but it is developed in Germany
