can I print out from songsmith RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have just DL and tried this fascinating program. It's a lot of fun.

    What I need to know is can I print out the chord progressions or music score from Soundsmith?

  • Thanks for your interest in Songsmith.  Because there are so many great programs out there for printing scores, we decided not to complicate Songsmith with this functionality.  So Songsmith does not enable printing directly, but you have a few options.  If you click the little arrow next to "save", and click "export", you can export the entire score to a MIDI file, which you'll be able to read in any number of scoring programs, e.g. MuseScore, which is free:


    Printing chord progressions is a little trickier, since there's not a widely supported format for this.  Since songs in Songsmith tend to be more like short snippets (a verse or chorus) than a whole song, typically what I do is just screen-capture the Songsmith window and save/print that as an image.  Not perfect, I know, but it usually does the trick.

    Sorry there's not direct support for this, hopefully these ideas help.

    Happy Songsmith'ing!
