Five easy ways to enter notes.

Entering 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.)
