♪ ScoreDate 3.2 - Are you serious ? ♪

July 15th, 2012  |  Posted by Massimo

One thing ScoreDate was missing since a long time was the possibility to play a full double clefs score. And here it is !
A brand new version with this big improvement which will allow users to train on more complex and complete exercises. The editor has been updated accordingly, to create, save and edit double clefs exercises. The editing is now vertical, to be more usable and comfortable.
A special thanks goes to Francesco, who helped me to debug and bring this version to the light.
...and the roadmap gets shorter and shorter...

♪ ScoreDate 3.0 - Growing faster ♪

April 22nd, 2012  |  Posted by Massimo

After quite a long time, here's a new version of ScoreDate, which brings an important step ahead to real time playback. Thanks to Fluidsynth, which is a great cross-platform project, it is now possible to reduce the latency to few milliseconds. The use of this synthesis engine allows also users to load their preferred sound banks in the SoundFont 2 format. More info here.
From now on, ScoreDate will be available on separate packages for the 32 and 64 bit systems (Windows and Linux). Unfortunately OSX users will have to be patient to use the Fluidsynth engine.

While waiting for version 2.3, which will be available very soon, you might be interested in seeing what editors think about Score Date. The program is now available on several software portals, like Softpedia, CNET, FileCluster, Softoxi.
This last one wrote a very nice review and published a helpful video which shows the main features of the program. Click here to watch.
So, 5 stars to Score Date !

♪ ScoreDate 2.2 - I hear you ♪

The main menu sixth button is now in place. Score Date now has the Ear training feature, so users can exercise on their skill to recognize notes just by listening to them. There are 4 levels of difficulty. Enjoy ! (New screenshots here)

It turned out that by default the Java Runtime Environment doesn't install the General MIDI soundbank which is required by Score Date. In other words, by default you can't hear any sound unless you install additional data from Oracle.
Well, now Score Date does it for you !

♪ ScoreDate 1.0 Alpha release out now ♪

November 7th, 2011  |  Posted by Massimo

After long nights and many days spent on programming, the first version of ScoreDate is finally available ! A lot of work still needs to be done (the word "Alpha" says it all...), but I'm proud to present my own version of a software inspired by the Jalmus project.
I've written a note about this, explaining why I started up ScoreDate. You can read it here

I've got a lot of plans for the future. You can have a glimpse of them in the roadmap page
