WikiComposer began as a project to create software that avoided the imperfections that sometimes occurred in other music editors. Many existing products have very strong features that do not aid in the tasks associated with actually creating music. After a search to find an editor that met our criteria for ease of use, WikiComposer was developed.
The actual physical characteristics of music don't change much from place to place: Pitch, position, and volume define a note, for the most part. What really differentiates a music editor is how easily it manipulates those few things. What are the problems that occur in other editors? How does WikiComposer attempt to avoid them?
