Our company



Music is the universal language of mankind
(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

For many years our company has done its part in keeping this important universal language alive. We are gladly putting all our efforts and creativity into this issue. Our aim is that our customers - may they  be amateurs or professionals - successfully work with our software and thus enrich their musical work.

What distinguishes us from other suppliers

As far as functions and features are concerned, you will find that, on paper at least, there is very little difference between the different notation programs. Of course there is a wide range of notation software to choose from. Maybe you are asking yourself why to choose our offer?

One-stop service

Our programs get along very well with each other. Nowhere else you will find a product family with notation program, scanning program, studio software, learning programs and a large number of scores. Reasonable interfaces make everything fit. There is no laborious conversion which makes your work professional and efficient.

Competence and reputation

From advice to support: You are dealing with experienced musicians who know what you are talking about. We pay a great deal of attention to detail and use our in-depth knowledge of users' requirements and preferences. Our software authors have set new standards in the range of legitimate music software worldwide.

Continuity and quality

In this process we are considering customers' ideas and feature requests to a great extent. We are paying particular attention to developing user-friendly software.

We are proud to offer high-quality programs which we are of course applying ourselves in our various musical projects.
