Over the past year I have had the distinct honor and pleasure to be among the first selected to beta test and work personally with Don Williams, CEO of Sonic Scores and developer of Overture 5. Throughout the testing process we squashed numerous bugs, implemented vst3 technology (with CC response), covered multiple system networking and library hosting with Vienna Ensemble Pro Server, time code/video synchronization for film scoring, MIDI editing, audio mixing, exporting/recording, and countless other notational options and features that have helped shape Overture into the powerful, gorgeous, and user friendly program it has become. Don has worked tirelessly on coding an extremely efficient program that combines both music notation and a DAW. It has evolved into a powerful tool that is giving many competitors like Finale, Sibelius, and Notion a run for their money. The beta release is now available for purchase and is also available to test as a demo. I encourage you all to be a part of the testing and finalization of this absolute gem of a program. Whether you are a professional or just like to tinker around...if you have ever wanted to try out an alternative to your existing MIDI sequencing or notation software...this is the one to try! It's extremely well priced, easy to use but more importantly...seldom do you find a developer who works so closely and tirelessly with his users in the pursuit of perfection.
