Do you have any softwares to recommend where we can translate our recordings or manually write the music we made.

I've always used Finale.

I like Sibelius ( it's really good. I like Finale too but, call me crazy, I think it has too many features and I get confused sometimes.

Hello, friend!

TablEdit is useful. It works with standard notation and tablature, can generate a score from a midi file and has vast resources of its format on the internet. I also find Guitar Pro very helpful and flexible.

I also use Sibelius. It's very flexible and easy to learn application. Also, Guitar Pro is good. :roll:

have a look at harmony assistant, a french company program which is great value for money compared to the others mentioned.

I like finale, as it is very versitile. However, I have not yet tried Sibelius, I have just used Finale in my music theory class to compose a couple of fairly simple pieces.

I use sibelius also. it is expensive but is a truly amazing piece of software which is so much more than just notation software. i have composed orchestral pieces with it.

I think Sibelius is a great program. I have used Finale also but did not find it as easy to use. Sibelius has a pretty comprehensive website that should let you get a feel for the program before you buy it.

Best of luck

After using Finale for many, many years I switched to Sibelius. Although it is a very deep program I found it more intuitive than Finale to get up and running with.

Great for orchestral arrangements and guitar.
