composer's integrated editing tools give you complete control over the sound of each note, simply by drawing the effects with your mouse. It's a visual way to work with sheet music that feels natural and makes your music sound better than ever.
  • Set volumes individually for each instrument, set the Pan for placement of each instrument in a stereo "space", and change the note velocities.
  • Draw tempo changes, Mod Wheel effects, and various controller effects to change the dynamics and performance of the music.
  • Insert a sound change in the middle of a track. For example, in the middle of a staff, you can change instruments from clean electric guitar to overdriven guitar, or from lush strings to pizzicato strings.
  • Use the Piano Roll notation to visualize the timing of the notes and fine-tune the performance of legato or staccato playing.
