    • PROS: This is likely the best music editing software in the world today., Music notation and real-time note entry are simple.
    • CONS: The software cannot export MusicXML or graphic files (sometimes used when writing scores)., Sibelius is quite expensive and might not be applicable for those on a tight budget.
