Five easy ways to enter notes.
Notation fonts and styles
capella offers you six different notation fonts from renaissance music to jazz. You can also save your own new fonts or variations and "crossbreeds" taken from existing fonts in separate styles. Style templates can be individually allocated to your scores.
Given that capella lets you present notes without stems and/or without heads, those who like experimenting, will find almost no limits to the possibilities available in defining individual notations. (In capella start you can only use the standard-style template.)
Listening and playback
capella supports the unique capella-tune technology, putting you in complete control of capella's tonal palette. Ornaments like trills, dynamic gradations, support for capella Vienna orchestra, echo effects and playback according to swing or Waltz rhythms are all reflected during playback.
