Overture 5 — $75 through December 31, 2017

For those looking for an alternate notation app, Overture 5 is on sale for $75. That's $54 less than the cross-grade price I paid last year.

Overture 5 has a bit of that work in progress feel to it and that's not an illusion. He has been releasing tweaks and updates every few weeks. The movie window is getting better as is xml support. There is no audio library yet — that will be a paid add-on later — but it works with many of the usual suspects.

Don Williams wrote Encore in the 1980s and the original version of Overture for Opcode so many years ago. He is on the other end of the support board so you know you are interacting with the developer.

Finale, Sibelius and Dorico it's not but, if you don't need the heavy lifting, you may wish to check it out.

I've been moving over to it to replace Encore for the down and dirty charts I still knock out on occasion.
