    Or are we all just (expletive) into the wind?

    I think that due to the holidays, not much work was done from December 21, so the release of Encore will most likely be delayed until January 2023.
    Besides, Encore users are a very long-suffering people as far as waiting times are concerned 😉

    How many other apps out there that haven’t had a paid upgrade in 15 years or an incremental update in 9 years have users waiting for a new version?

    Me too, BTW. I just hope it retains the easy of use that keeps me using it (or most of it, at least).

    This sounds like an awful lot to me and perhaps explains a little, in addition to Don having a personal life?!

    From About Us Page:
    “Don plans to keep Passport Music software running as a separate entity while reviving both Encore and Master Tracks Pro along with working on his other projects at Sonic Scores.”

    it seems that Overture hasn’t received updates for a long time either.

    June 2023: ZzZzZzZzZzZz still snoozing and patiently waiting for Encore 6. Come on Don, I continue to lose my work every time Encore 5.0.4.875 crashes.

    Although I like Encore for many reasons, I refuse to lose work. Fortunately, 5.0.7 for Mac almost never crashes. Problem is that I must shut down and boot from a different drive or run it from my laptop with a 27” external monitor. Often the time so set it up outweighs the savings I see by using Encore. Then there are the terrible slurs.

    I like Encore for the quick charts I need to knock out but I can use Overture/Finale/Dorico if I need to and the layout looks better when I’m done—takes longer, however. I am not a fan of Notion and strongly dislike MuseScore & Sibelius.

    Encore has never been a practical choice for heavy lifting or publication. For praise band charts, church choir rehearsal, lead sheets etc. Encore is perfect which is why I want version 6. It’s not the only game in town and I refuse to let it get in my way.

    A friend contacted me yesterday for a recommendation. She had been running Finale notePad, a free version that was discontinued after 2012. Her new Win computer won’t run it and she has learned how useless MuseScore is for her work.

    If Encore 6 existed, I would have steered her there in a heartbeat since it would be perfect for her needs. Instead, I recommended Finale 27 — like recommending a tourniquet for a mosquito bite but it will do what she wants with a workflow she already understands, even if it is waaaaay overkill for her needs as a piano teacher and church accompanist. With academic pricing, I expect the cost to be about the same either way.

    Encore 5 will no longer run on my wife’s Mac, of course, so she has begun to explore Finale and has started to figure it out, also. Since I am in house tech support, her learning curve impacts my time.

    Gotta move along and get the work done, right?

    Is it possible to buy an older Encore version like 5 or 4.5? Thanks.

    No. If you read the NOTE on the main page it says:

    “At this time there are no products being sold or none to be downloaded.
    This will only occur when Encore 6 is released.”

    I don’t think we will ever see Encore at this rate

    my wife used music time deluxe for many years and when her computer died she had to get a new one and that would not run that program any more. We are hoping that Enore 6 will run on the new mac’s and that Encore 6 will be able to open the old music time deluxe files.

    It’s what we all want.
