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.

As if we needed any more reasons not to hate the French.

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.

That's funny. I never bother with commercial products. They are (almost) all overpriced and rarely responsive to customer needs or complaints. I OWN over 500 apps. Less than 2% are from commercial companies. One more thing; I earn a very comfortable 6 figure income using open source and shareware products.

Near-pro quality at just 15 euros/US$ worth. I also experienced directly a very quick responsiveness by the authors when I had to flag a problem. Great piece of shareware at a more-than-fair price. Kudos to those French guys!

This program is worth every penny/cent/Euro. Like other commentators I have looked at and disregarded commercial rivals but have bought into this. Melody Assistant can do everything I want and more besides. Excellent.
