1. Melody Window
An intuitive editor where you can create thematic elements – “motives” – which will then be used for composing a complete piece.
2. Percussion Window
A multi-track editor to create complex drumbeats easily and intuitively.
3. Music Library
A library of musical materials (percussion, bass, accompaniment and melody “motives”) in several music genres to explore, learn with and get started!
4. Sketch Window
Using the “motives” created in the Melody and Percussion Windows, start your composition simply by drawing lines – color-coded and associated with particular motives – in the Sketch Window.
5. Instrument Sounds
Access a broad range of instrument sounds – from strings to guitar to piano to rhythm and beyond. Each sketched line can be assigned a particular instrument sound, allowing for varied and complex instrumentation.
6. Volume and Tempo Control
General tempo control allows you to speed up or slow down your piece, while volume control – available for each individual sketched line – makes it easy to adds dynamics to your piece.
7. Harmony Line
Hyperscore’s Harmony Line is one of the most powerful features of the application – bend it and shape it to provide harmonic structure to the piece.
8. Polyphonic Mode
Now the Melody Window supports a polyphonic mode for creating multi-voice melodies and chords.
9. Motive Loop Visual Feedback
The Strokes in the Sketch Window now clearly indicate where your motives loop, improving the level of precision in the composition process.
10. Time signature options / Grid improvement
Now you can specify arbitrary time signatures and grid detail levels. You can also precisely control the snapping accuracy with the new grid.
11. Erase Tool and Stroke Editing
The improved stroke-editing functionality and the Erase Tool make it a lot easier to draw, redraw, cut and erase your music strokes.
12. Built-in Documentation
A built-in User Guide and Composition Tutorial (select versions only) makes learning Hyperscore fast and fun.
