Music Tech - free or very cheap software suggestions?

Discussion in 'Music' started by starfluf, May 18, 2011.

  1. Hi all
    I'm keen to get ICT in music on the curriculum next year for KS3. I'm in the process of connecting our midi keyboards to our laptops and am looking at options to engage KS3 with a nice user friendly interface. I'm loathed to use Dance Ejay (which is currently installed thanks to a previous HoD who spec'ed up laptops instead of desktops) and Cubase looks quite expensive when we'd have to outlay for 17 machines. I'm looking at mu.lab - has anyone any experience of this or suggestions of alternatives?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi starfluf

    Why don't you apply to be a Roland Champion School? Jonathan Savage has been publicising it on this forum. Applications need to be in by 10th June. You would get 1 year's site licence for Cakewalk and Notation 3 for your school. Unfortunately, I've never used either of these pieces of software so can't say how good they are. Also, you would have to ffulfil certain obligations to Roland, but these obligations could be really good for your CPD. Here is a link to Jon's website http://jsavage.org.uk/ He last blogged about this on 6th May so scroll down and there's lots of info there.

    It's worth a look :)
