MuseScore

 -  100% Safe  -  Open Source

What's new in this version:

- Rhythmic input: enter rhythm first, pitches later. Saves having to swap back and forth between computer and MIDI keyboard.
- Semi-real-time MIDI input - a limited form of real-time input (play the piece on a MIDI keyboard and notation is generated automatically). In semi-real-time, you can't enter triplets or notes shorter than your chosen duration, but it is more reliable than fully real-time entry.
- Real-time (automatic)—play along with metronome
- Real-time (manual)—play while tapping a key/pedal to set tempo
- Much better support for SFZ sample libraries in Zerberus synthesizer (see below)
