Everything is right there in front of you, no need for paper files, rhyming dictionary, thesaurus, scraps of paper, shoe boxes, folders, and recorders needed. Very user friendly. With a laptop you can write from anywhere. You can keep your notes, keep several versions of your lyrics, and most importantly, when you find a melody you like, you record it right then and there, without looking for the device in another room, while possibly loosing the melody line, in the process. You can tell this software was designed by songwriters, it is hands on, and you don't need to be a computer expert. I wish I would have gotten it sooner.
