rosegarden [options] [File]


This manual page documents briefly the rosegarden command.

rosegarden is a MIDI and audio sequencer, notation editor, and general-purpose music composition and editing application for Unix and Linux. It is a Qt application meaning you need the Qt4 libraries. However, it can be run within any desktop or window manager environment.

Most options for rosegarden (such as JACK output channels) are configured through the graphical interface.
