Portable MuseScore is the portable version of MuseScore developed to be able to run from a USB flash drive or any other portable device.
MuseScore is a powerful but easy to use music scorewriter. MuseScore is a WYSIWYG editor, complete with support for score playback and import / export of MusicXML and standard MIDI files.
Percussion notation is supported, as is direct printing from the program. The program has a clean user interface, with fast note editing input similar to the step-time note entry found in the popular commercial Scorewriting software packages, Finale and Sibelius.
MuseScore is able to import and export from many different music formats, including MIDI and MusicXML, as well as the importing of files from the commercial music arranging software, such as Band-in-a-Box.
It is able to produce engraved output as a PDF, SVG or PNG document, or alternatively, music can be exported to LilyPond for subsequent tweaking of the output.
The standalone version of the software can be found here.
