Compose Music By Hand With The Gorgeous StaffPad App

Write music using the Microsoft Surface’s advanced pen in the most intuitive music notation app available – StaffPad.

StaffPad brings handwritten music notation to the 21st century, without a mouse you can arrange your scores digitally yet traditionally. Using StaffPad on the Microsoft Surface (and compatible Windows 10 devices) you can handwrite your music and convert it into “a beautifully typeset score”.

StaffPad converts your scribbles into notations that you can edit, share, print and even play back using a uniquely designed sampler featuring the sounds of the Boston Pops orchestra and other world class musicians. The application is built for professionals and it’s clear with the intimacy and depth of notation features, but for newbies there’s a bunch of interactive training and tutorials included.

Last Autumn a smart ‘Composer Assistant’ was added in an a free update that intelligently responds to your voice. Ask the assistant to set up a new score, add specific instruments, change key and time signatures and much more. This is just the start of what is capable with StaffPad for Microsoft devices, see what it can really do in the video below.

StaffPad is available now for $69.99/£54.09 from the Microsoft Store.
