Frescobaldi 1.1.8

frescobaldi-icoFrescobaldi 1.1.8 for Mandriva Linux 2010.1.

Frescobaldi is a LilyPond sheet music text editor for KDE4.
It aims to be powerful, yet lightweight and easy to use. It is named after Girolamo Frescobaldi (1583-1643), an Italian composer.




It's a development version and some of the newer features require also a development version of LilyPond (actually at the version 2.12.38 aka alpha4).


  • Enter LilyPond scores and preview them with a mouseclick
  • Advanced Point & Click: click on notes to jump to the correct position in the text, even if the document has changed
  • Setup a music score very quickly using the Score Wizard
  • Enter music via MIDI using the Rumor plugin
  • LilyPond documentation browser with context-sensitive help

The built-in editor has many powerful features to enter and manipulate music:

  • Advanced syntax coloring that also signals some often made errors
  • Auto-indent nested structures, those can be folded for quick overview
  • Context sensitive autocompletion, to quickly enter commands and parameters
  • Manipulate pitch (transpose, translate, relative/absolute conversion)
  • Manipulate rhythm (scale, copy/paste durations over other music, etc.)
  • Hyphenate lyrics
  • Quickly enter or add articulations and other symbols to existing music
  • Run the document through convert-ly to update it to a newer LilyPond version
  • Expansion dialog to enter larger snippets of LilyPond input using keyboard shortcuts or short mnemonics

There are also some other nice tools such as a built-in terminal and a blank staff paper generator. Frescobaldi has a comprehensive User Guide that's accessible from everywhere using the F1 key.










Changelog: (1.1.8 -- November 9th, 2010)
