A Quick Tutorial on the use of Notation Composer. I use this program occasionally to create my own Fake or Song Sheets quickly. This program can be downloaded from the web for a free Demo from HERE

Notation Composer makes it easy to turn any MIDI file into sheet music
and arrange it just the way you want it. Perhaps you want to create a
special arrangement for your group or maybe you just want to change a
few notes. Everything you need is right here.
- Change note pitches simply by dragging them and change note durations with a single click.
- Add notes, measures, staves, common musical expressions, directions, lyrics, and text — anything you need to add your own flair to the arrangement.
- Copy and paste notes or entire regions from the same song or another song.
- Enter titles, page numbers, and part names, plus tell Composer which pages to print them on.
- Composer also includes all of the features found in Notation Musician.
Composer creates the sheet music for you, so
you can focus on making great music. Record notes just by playing your
MIDI instrument or insert notes with your mouse. You can even copy
and paste from other songs to borrow licks or musical phrases.
- The New Song Wizard helps you get started quickly. Change any of the score settings later with a couple of mouse clicks and insert measures anywhere in the score.
- Record in Step Time through the tricky spots or record in Real Time at any tempo. You can even tap in the rhythms and adjust the notes later.
- Add or remove instruments and try different instrument sounds anytime you like.
- Type or paste in your lyrics, plus add text, marks, and symbols.
Composer's integrated editing tools give you complete control over the
sound of each note, simply by drawing the effects with your mouse. It's a
visual way to work with sheet music that feels natural and makes your
music sound better than ever.
- Set volumes individually for each instrument, set the Pan for placement of each instrument in a stereo "space", and change the note velocities.
- Draw tempo changes, Mod Wheel effects, and various controller effects to change the dynamics and performance of the music.
- Insert a sound change in the middle of a track. For example, in the middle of a staff, you can change instruments from clean electric guitar to overdriven guitar, or from lush strings to pizzicato strings.
- Use the Piano Roll notation to visualize the timing of the notes and fine-tune the performance of legato or staccato playing. (See Chart below for explanation of terms)
