Easy to Use Notation
Record, view and edit your work in standard music notation. You can change key, meter, or time signature with a press of the mouse. Adjust the way you see and hear your music by quantizing all or part of your sequence--automatically fix your mistakes.    [Partial Notation Window Image]
[Small Graphic Editing Window Image]   Graphic Editing with Strip Chart
See the patterns in your music and get a different perspective of your performance. When notation isn't enough, the Graphic Window simplifies your music into easily readable colored bars. Even if you can't read music you can still follow along and edit your performance. Adjust and edit different parts of your music using the Strip Chart. Change pitch bend, volume, and note duration by drawing with the mouse.

Drag-and-Drop Editing
Musicshop provides full drag-and-drop editing capabilities. In the Graphic Editing window simply grab any MIDI note to lengthen its duration, change its start time, or pitch. Hold the Alt key (Option in Macintosh) and you can automatically make a copy of the original item. Move the copy into any position without affecting the original note. Editing couldn't be easier!

Help Menu
Have a question? Complete interactive help is only a click away. The Help window features Keyword searches, cross referenced topics, hypertext links, clickable graphics and even links into Opcode's Web site (Windows version only). Also includes a glossary, index, bookmarks, post-it like notes and more.   [Help Box Image]
 [Partial Mixer Image]   Mixing Console
Automate your mixes with Musicshop's 32-track mixing console and watch your faders move. You can group multiple faders together for easy global adjustments. Edit each track's volume, pan, mute and solo right in the same window. Take control of your mix quickly and easily.
