Drum Score Editor is free software for drum scores in the pipe band world and is available on Apple macOS, Microsoft Windows and Linux. There is no charge to download and use the community edition of this software, it's distributed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License.
There is a paid license available which unlocks advanced features that will save even more time writing and maintaining beautiful scores for a drum corps. More details about this are available in the Licensing section below, however the free version is very capable and many people regard this still as the most rapid way to work with drum scores. They haven't seen how rapid they would be with the advanced features!
Importantly Drum Score Editor is actively maintained and updated, with new features and any bugfixes forthcoming as needed, with an active community of users whose feedback helps drive forward in the quest to have the best tools available to us drummers.
There's a whole bunch of legal stuff as per the license above, but really this is just to say it's free and no-one is allowed to sell you it, nor can you sell it on. You can't use it to make money either unless we agree that in advance as you'll probably want better support than the best efforts there is with this, given it's free!
If something's not working how it should, or just isn't clear to you, am happy to help anyone out, either via facebook or at email@example.com - any suggestions for improvement always welcome!
