Software for the study of counterpoint!
Counterpointer provides music notation tools and exercises in traditional counterpoint, both species and free counterpoint in 2, 3, 4, or more parts. It will analyze what you write and comment on any departures from the chosen style, whether it is Palestrina, Bach vocal, a custom style, or any of the five species used in counterpoint instruction. You can evaluate your work repeatedly, hear it, save it, and print it. Counterpointer includes a study guide with general advice on writing counterpoint and specific guides for each of the five species. Begin with first species (note-against-note) and work your way up!
Improves the Autobar command (command for entering automatic bar lines in Free Counterpoint) to handle more complex situations in notation. Don't miss the many online music examples available through the File menu when in the Free Counterpoint section! These include Bach Chorales, Renaissance vocal polyphony, and more.
