Some time ago, I wrote that I was abandoning the leading software for songwriting: MasterWriter. I proposed a few alternatives, but in reality, those have turned out to be disappointing for the purpose, as well.

I’m just wondering what I’m overlooking. Yesterday I found Minim, which looked promising, but after downloading it and working with it I don’t think it’s right either.

I can’t imagine I’m the only one out there who’s frustrated. What are the rest of you doing for songwriting tools?

Songwriters: found anything better than MasterWriter?

    Hey, I’m the developer of Minim and I’m currently looking to refocus it for a 2.0 release and pretty much re-build it from the ground up to be a real tool rather than the current mish mash of bits. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on what could be improved in Minim to help you with creating music. Feel free to contact me at if you have any feedback about what you’d like to see.

    Have you taken a look a the beta for Lilac Writer.

    It is sort of like Master Writer but takes it fully online as a collaboration tool.

    It is free during the beta.
