Abaltat Muse is easy to use.

Abaltat Band is what defines the style of music, and included free in Version 1.1 of Abaltat Muse is a rich array of Abaltat‘s plug-in virtual Bands, seven in total, giving the user access to a diverse range of musical genres, from classical to dub reggae.
Abaltat Muse composes the music and plays it out using a sample player and virtual instruments. The software incorporates technology from experts in the audio industry, namely Native Instruments™ and Garritan Libraries™. As a result, the audio and instrument quality is extremely high. The audio can be exported as AIFF or WAV files. The composition can be exported as a MIDI file, should the editor require a composer to do additional work on his or her composition.
