MIDI Connections Light is the small version of MIDI Connections Score. The structure and operation of the editors is identical to the score. The functionality is however somewhat reduced.
You will find demos of the latest programme version under Download/Demos. The documentation can also be PDFdownloaded as PDF.

Sheet music and scores:
For music students, choirs, or brass bands, scores of up to 2 staves can be freely scaled and formatted on the score sheet in the notation of the MC-Score. In one stave, 8 different keys can be selected and up to four-voice polyphony can be displayed. Over 150 articulation-, arrangement- and auxiliary -symbols as well as your own text blocks can be used on the sheet music.
Individual voices are read out with a click from scores. These individual voices can then be transposed or formatted as desired. Therefore, the single line of a score can be generated in different keys and tonalities as a separate notation excerpt. The score and the different single lines remain in the same file and have the same notation basis. Changes in the notation material in the score simultaneously change the corresponding note in the corresponding single lines.
The combination of notation and MIDI sequencer makes it easy to convert MIDI files into sheet music. You can select the tracks of the MIDI file to be displayed on the sheet, then the desired key and the MIDI file track. If the file already contains text and chords, these can be inserted and positioned as desired. Of course, missing or incorrect texts and chords in the sheet can be adapted or re-entered.
Creating drum notation is child's play in the sequencer using the Drum Editor. Your own or pre-prepared standard drum maps (notation assignment table) automatically convert the patterns from the Drum Editor into the correct drum notation.
Edit MIDI files:
As already mentioned, MIDI files can be displayed as sheet music with one click. The MIDI sequencer is the actual source of information for the note display. If you change something in the MIDI sequencer, the note display also changes. If the notation is changed, the data in the MIDI sequencer will also change. Additionally, when a loaded MIDI song is edited in the notation, it remains a MIDI song that can be saved as a MIDI file. No MIDI data will be lost unless they are changed or deleted.
The MIDI sequencer recognizes SMF/XF chords, karaoke text, time signature and key, which are stored in a MIDI file. All notes, chords, texts, controllers, ProgrammeChange, PitchBend or Syex messages can be changed, added or deleted in the various editors. The Multi-Grid, Drum-Grid, Event editor and the notation are available for this purpose.
Tracks and parts:
A volume scroller and a mute, boost and solo button are available for each MIDI track. The master volume scroller adjusts the volume of the individual tracks as a percentage. An extensive device library simplifies the swapping of sounds and voices of each track. Be it MIDI channels, reverb, panning, chorus, tempo, volume, or sound assignments, all of these can be done easily in the MIDI sequencer with its editors.
The individual tracks can be divided into parts (sections), divided and moved, copied or transposed. Working with parts allows for a fast "conversion" of existing pieces, which can be used as a basis for the notation or as a new MIDI file.
The band part:
The band part of MIDI Connections contains a "five-man band" as a training partner. Choose from an abundance of 70 music styles, such as Swing, HipHop, Pop, Rock ... Whether you are a trumpeter, guitarist or pianist – it makes practicing fun! The band part only needs the "lead sheet", i.e. the chords of the piece and generates the appropriate accompaniment in the selected music style. The accompaniment created can be edited further in the sequencer. A melody can be entered or imported into the accompaniment generated and a complete MIDI song can be played on all MIDI file keyboards, computers or MIDI file players.
Das Programm enthält auch einzigartige Werkzeuge, die dem Anwender viel Arbeit abnehmen. Fehlen in einem MIDI-File die Akkorde, hilft der Song-Analyser, der nach Harmonieregeln die Akkorde berechnet. Ein weiteres Tool ist der Gitarren-Akkord-Generator, er lädt, anhand der eingegebenen Akkorde, aus einer Akkordbibliothek die entsprechenden Akkordsymbole.
