music on computers

 re Steve Jobs-

   I use my Windows pc daily for music. 

1- band-in-a-box  for play-along and for creating leadsheets.

2- amazing slowdowner-  for playing  music at any tempo and key of my choice.

3-youtube for hearing recordings of music that i'm studying and for online lessons.

4- audio to mp3 - for capturing youtube music to an mp3 file

5- Finale to make  quallty print  versions of music that i customize for my plalying

    (change of key, or instrumentation, etc)

6- websites-

     IMSLP  for public domain classical sheet music

    Wikifonia- for popular music lead sheets

     amazon- for buying download mp3s.



 All the apps that i use are very valuable to my musical activity

and i am grateful that they exist.  None of these apps are directly linked to Steve Jobs or Apple

other than the role they played in the overall development of personal pcs.  I have stuck with'

windows over apple mainly because i can do everything i need on pcs and they are

much less expensive than apple products.--
