Tour 3: Notation
Rosegarden includes a powerful notation editor – essential if score is your preferred way to compose, or just to give you a different view on your work.
You can edit notation at the same time as any of the other standard editing windows, and Rosegarden unobtrusively keeps everything up-to-date for you.

And Rosegarden can even tidy up recorded notation using a powerful heuristic notation quantizer, without losing the original performance timings.
You can prepare printed scores, editing and previewing in a clear multi-page layout...
... and then print directly, using LilyPond to generate high-quality typeset output:
