Heads up. Version 7.6.3e crashes when it tried to load some files, probably ones that are imperfect in some way. Developer has been notified. If you have an older version, don't ditch it until you know for sure if it can read all your files.

Melody Assistant is the smaller sibling of Harmony Assistant. I found both Melody Assistant and Harmony assistant to work on OS X 10.7.3 (Lion) I particularly likely the ability to work with a wide range for format with Karaoke MIDI (.kar) and the Virtual Singer (just fun) ... which I did not find in the more expensive alternatives. The developer has also been responsive and fixed a minor issue with the MusicXML import. After working with both Melody Assistant and Harmony Assistant, I later opted for the more featured Harmony Assistant.

I never ever bother with shareware programs [money's been tight ever since college], but after trying a demo of Melody Assistant I knew that I had to register to get the full features... it's just that amazing. I had been trying to find an effective and easy-to-use program to write sheet music with for quite some time, and I was absolutely blown away by what Melody had to offer.

I've had melody for a real long time now and finally with this release realtime MIDI recording works! Finally! It finally puts the notes in the right place - right where I played them! This version is a great update! As always Melody is a bit eccentric and certain things like stem control for writing SATB on Grand Staff are awkward, but this is OK for now. I continue to use this until, and maybe after Coda upgrades printmusic for OS X. Those slow people! sorry.
