Using these programs you can compose or arrange music and print it out. Another great idea is downloading midi files off the internet; Open them in the software and edit them for printing.

Midi files that are created with the help of a metronome beat should turn out well. Files that were recorded without a metronome will look very confusing. Enjoy listening to these ones, but don't bother with the notation. You can find most of your favourite songs on the internet using a search engine. Enter the title of the song and "midi" or ".mid".

There are lots of great midi sites such as The Classical Music Archives
