  1. Cakewalk® Score Writer™ 1.0.1 for Windows 95/98 README.RTF March 15, 1999 Copyright © 1999 by Twelve Tone Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. Cakewalk is a registered trademark, and Score Writer is a trademark of Twelve Tone Systems, Inc. Thank you for purchasing Score Writer!

Score Writer 1.0.1 has not been confirmed as fully compatible with Windows NT, however. If you choose to run Score Writer under Windows NT, you may experience irregularities in display, MIDI playback and recording, and printing. While some users will choose to run Score Writer under Windows NT, we do not recommend it. A future release of Score Writer for Windows will be fully compatible with Windows NT. Overture 2 for Windows Compatibility Overture 2 for Windows is Cakewalk’s professional music composition and publishing tool. Overture version 2.1.1 (available since October 1998) and later are able to open your Score Writer files. As you work with Score Writer, you may eventually find that you want to begin working on more
  2. complex scores. Overture allows you to work with more than four voices on up to 64 staves, creating more complex notation using additional musical symbols. Since it offers the same tools and windows as Score Writer, Overture provides a natural transition for you as your musical needs grow. To upgrade to Overture 2, please contact the Cakewalk Customer Service team at: 0* email: sales@cakewalk.com 1* phone: 888 CAKEWALK, 8 am to 8 PM Eastern (in North America) 617 441 7870, 8 AM to 8 PM Eastern (outside the U.S.) 2* fax: 617 441 7887 More Information on Score Writer’s Features This section of the ReadMe file contains additional information on Score Writer for Window’s features, above and beyond the information in the User’s Guide. Using Templates We have included many types of music templates to make starting a score easier. Look in the Score Writer directory for the Template directory; you’ll find starter templates like Vocal Solo with Piano, Jazz Trio, and Concert Band. Score Writer’s templates are read-only files; after you open them, choose File>Save As and rename them as you wish. Score Writer won't let you save over the original templates (unless you change their read-only status). Feel free to create your own templates and place them in the Templates directory. To protect a template with read-only status, or change the read-only status of an Score Writer template, do the following: 1. Run the Windows Explorer (look in your Start menu for the shortcut) 2. Locate Score Writer’s Templates directory (for example, C:Program FilesCakewalkCakewalk Score WriterTemplates) 3. Select the Template you wish to change 4. Choose File>Properties (alternately, click the template with your right-mouse button and choose Properties from the context menu) 5. Click the Read-only checkbox 6. Click OK When the Read-only checkbox has a checkmark, your file will be protected and you will not be able to save over it. Instrument Definitions Instrument definitions help Score Writer understand the way a particular synthesizer works. We include many different sets of instrument definitions, stored as *.INS files on your hard drive. If a definition doesn't exist for your particular synthesizer, or you have specialized patch names in banks of user presets on your synthesizer, that doesn't mean that your device is incompatible with Score Writer. Certain things, like choosing patches, won't be quite as easy or automatic as they are when you use one of Score Writer’s instrument definitions, but Score Writer can still play on that device. You can create your own instrument definitions for use with your MIDI gear, allowing you to
  3. choose patches and banks easily. For a full explanation of instrument definitions, please see Score Writer’s online help. Hardware Notes and Known Problems Using 16 bit SoundBlaster Drivers If you have a 16 bit SoundBlaster card, you should avoid using the "Suspend" function of Windows 95/98 while Score Writer is running. Your computer may not function correctly after you reactivate it; Score Writer will not be able to exit successfully. Since the crash occurs after you are asked to save your documents, there is no risk of data loss. This is a limitation in the 16-bit SoundBlaster drivers, which enter an endless loop while Score Writer is attempting to exit, halting your computer. This problem also affects portable computers, since the computer may enter suspend mode (sometimes called “sleep”) on its own when idle for several minutes. If you have a setting to prevent your computer from entering sleep, you may wish to use it. Or, consult with Creative Labs technical support for an updated driver. Printing Printing to an Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 5P in Windows 95 If you use Windows 95 B (OSR2) as your operating system and print to an HP 5P, your ties may print improperly. They may appear more thick and dark than you expect. If you experience problems with your ties or other curves when printing on an HP 5P, use the standard LaserJet 4 print driver supplied with Windows 95. It does not display this problem. If you use Window 98, you will not need to switch print drivers, since this problem doesn’t occur when printing to a HP 5P in Windows 98. Printing to a Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 5SiNX on a NetWare Network The HP 5SiNX print driver has an apparent bug that causes a crash for users printing to that printer on a NetWare Print Server. This affects applications that use the Microsoft Foundation Classes, like Score Writer and Microsoft’s WordPad. The crash causes a “blue screen” to appear. To determine if this bug affects you, set your default printer on the NetWare network to the HP 5SiNX and run WordPad. Then, print any WordPad document (even a blank one). If WordPad crashes and displays a blue screen, then Score Writer will also crash if you try to print; you will not be able to print to this printer across a NetWare network. 800x600 (or greater) Monitor Score Writer runs best when your monitor is set to a desktop area of 800x600 or larger. Every standard PC meeting Score Writer’s minimum requirements should be capable of displaying at 800x600 resolution. If you choose to run Score Writer at resolutions smaller than 800x600, such as 640x480, the
  4. Score window’s status bar and certain windows and dialogs will not display properly. To change your monitor resolution, do the following: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Choose Control Panel from the Start menu’s Settings menu Double-click the Display control panel Click the Settings tab Choose your desired Desktop Area setting Click Apply Changes between Score Writer 1.0 and 1.0.1 This section lists the improvements made in this maintenance update to Score Writer 1.0.1 Font Issues—Aloisen New Score Writer 1.0.1 now ships with a new font, Aloisen New. Score Writer 1.0.1 will not run unless the Aloisen New font is properly installed in your system. To reinstall this font, run the Setup.exe program on your Score Writer 1.0.1 Install CD. The Aloisen New font is identical to the Aloisen font shipped with previous versions of Score Writer. We included the new font to provide improved compatibility with other Windows applications and future Macintosh versions of Score Writer Score Writer 1.0.1 is the only version that uses Aloisen New. Score Writer 1.0 will continue to require Aloisen to display and print music. Even though Score Writer 1.0.1 uses the new font, this will not affect your ability to open and print your documents in earlier versions of Score Writer, nor will it affect how your older documents open in version 1.0.1 In version 1.0.1, all music characters in your documents should display and print as long as the Aloisen New font is installed on the system, whether you created the documents in an earlier version or not. When opening documents saved in Score Writer 1.0.1 with earlier versions, all music characters in your documents should display and print properly as long as the older Aloisen font is installed on the system. Note: while this font change does not affect the music characters in your documents, such as notes and clefs, it may affect music symbols you have included as text symbols placed manually in your score. Score Writer allows you to place any character in any font in your documents as Page, Measure, Staff System, or Rehearsal text. This includes headers and footers in common fonts such as Helvetica, as well as individual music symbols in fonts such as Aloisen and Petrucci that you may have added to your score with Score Writer’s text tools. Other Enhancements and Improvements in Score Writer 1.0.1 Score Writer 1.0.1 incorporates the following enhancements and improvements suggested by users or identified by Cakewalk since the release of Score Writer 1.0.
