song editor for creating (and converting) notes for music games


Composer is a song editor for creating (and converting) notes for music games in various formats. It attempts to make the process easy by automating as much as possible while providing a simple and attractive interface to do the remaining manual work.

Key features of Composer include:

 * Song pitch analysis based on the esteemed algorithms from Performous.
 * Zoomable interface to quickly get an overview or doing very precise timing.
 * Possibility to synthesize the notes to get a feel of their "sound".
 * Import/export in various formats including:
   * SingStar XML
   * UltraStar TXT
   * Frets on Fire MIDI

Composer has a rather distinguished workflow: for example, the lyrics are imported as a whole and each time you manually put a note in place, the others automatically adjust to take use of the new information in providing a better guess of the pitch and timing. In a sense, you are not actually creating a song, but fixing and tuning the result of what the computer thinks the notes should be like.
