"Still A Robust Alternative"

February 25, 2010  |  By hkim

 |  Version: Overture 4.1.0p21


This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Even though this update has been long in coming, Overture (in its current form) is still an easier music notation application to use that provides reliable scores, parts and client comps. I would still rate this application ahead of its competitors in its handling of lyrics.
Overture can still handle almost any external VSTs that one can mention with only a few rough spots.

"Overture 4 released"

April 29, 2007  |  By jrethorst

 |  Version: Overture 3.6.1


This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This program will do as much as Sibelius in notation, and is a full VST host. Of all the music programs I've used (Finale, Sibelius, Encore, Prof. Composer/Mosaic and a few more) this is the most intuitive and elegant. Easy and fun to use.

"A good alternative to Sibelius"

April 05, 2004  |  By hkim

 |  Version: Overture 3.6


This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Overture was Opcode's ENCORE, which was a reliable scoring application. Overture is adequate for scoring and is quick and easy (as easy if not easier than Sibelius) for note entry without the convoluted input steps of Finale or Sibelius. Overture's strongest point is in the easy in creating and editing lyrics. For this one feature alone, I use Overture on on certain projects since I score in 2-byte languages (Korean, Japanese) and this application handles such easily, unlike Sibelius. If scoring for an orchestra, I might choose Sibelius but when lyrics are needed, this is the tool and the price is very competitive.
