Mus2 -- A Turkish Music Software for Microtones
« on: September 27, 2011, 02:14:58 PM »
Hello everyone,

Has anyone heard of Mus2, a microtonal music software that can play all the makams, commas, microtones? 

I bought it the other day after some research and it seems pretty good so far.  Another great thing about it is that you can buy another little package as a bundle, called Mus2Okur, (which literally means Mus2Reader, Mus2  itself means Musiki, as the number 2 is read as 'iki' in Turkish). 

Mus2Okur comes with a very rich Turkish art/classical music database with all the scores written in pdf and they come with MIDI files. 

If anyone is interested in learning how makams sound or how microtones/commas sound, finally there is a software.  There are some bugs related with it, but it's not at a level to disturb the work overall.

Just wanted to share this great find with the fellow forum members.

Nikos and Philip,

Yes, this is a great software.  And pretty cheap compared to what one would pay for other professional software.  Finale costs $600, while Mus2 costs almost one tenth of that price -- together with the huugge database of written sheet music in PDF.  Which you can simply print out and use.  It also came with MIDI files, so if one desires, he/she can directly use it on the go to listen on a portable device like iPod or BlackBerry etc.  It would reinforce the hearing/ear.

I had an update issue with the second part of the software and they got back to me within 2 hours and it was on a weekend.  So, the team is pretty responsive and all.

Hope you enjoy it if you buy.

Have a nice weekend.
Begli

I am new to this forum, but glad to find it a rich resource for information about Turkish/Greek music!  Many thanks to all who post here.  I play yaylı tanbur and am currently based in Wellington NZ. This software looks interesting.  I'll have a look.  Thanks.

Thanks everyone! I'd been missing interactions with musicians of this sort since arriving in Wellington.  Luckily, I've tracked down a good ud player and percussionist.

I'm already waiting for my license number.

Major software with a lot of info to help you with the first important steps on turkish music.

Thanks a lot for sharing this information!
