Commodore 64[edit]

I'm almost positive I remember this program for the Commodore 64, but I can't find any evidence of it. Can someone else verify this? If not, I guess its mention in the article should be removed. Frecklefoot | Talk 18:28, Apr 13, 2005 (UTC)

PC MCS was a booter[edit]

Hi, I removed the references to DOS for the IBM PC version of MCS because it was never a DOS program. The original diskette booted directly.

The DOS confusion probably stems from two things: 1. You could read the diskette somewhat in DOS; the program didn't show up, but the music data files did. 2. Most people nowadays who run MCS run the Demonlord-cracked version, which took him a few painstaking weeks to crack and convert. People with no experience with the original would never know it was a bootable disk that didn't use DOS. Trixter 18:28, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

Descendants of MCS?[edit]

For the last 15 years I've been looking for a piece of software that worked the way the Music Construction Set did. Does anybody know of any logical descendants of this program? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dspitzle (talkcontribs) 21:20, 1 February 2007 (UTC).

I don't, though I know it was heavily criticized by musicians. Mainly because they couldn't just play music and have it show up in notation form—dragging and dropping notes wasn't "creative" enough for them. I don't think it'd have much of an audience today, which explains why EA hasn't updated it. Sorry I couldn't help... — Frecklefoot | Talk 21:42, 1 February 2007 (UTC)
