Subject: RE: Playing ABC snippets
John, I've gotten real lazy since I got ABCMUS. I think it's the perfect ABC player for us Mudcatters. I have it on my Win95 "Start" button, so it's a cinch to start. If I see an ABC tune I want to hear, I highlight, right-click, and copy it; and then I select "Play tune from clipboard" on ABCMUS. I can save the tune as a MIDI or add chords. I can also play and modify the Songwright tunes that come with the disk version of the Digital Tradition.
The only thing it doesn't do is compose ABC tunes, but for playing ABC, it's wonderful. The shareware fee is ten bucks US, which is a real bargain - but you can do a lot with the unregistered version.
