A ghostwriter is a composer who writes music that will be officially
credited to another person. The concept of ghostwriting goes back
centuries: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a well-known composer paid to
ghostwrite music for wealthy patrons. These days the
sound design aspect of composing music has become as important as the
notes, chords and rhythms, particularly in the creation of film, game,
and television soundtracks, so while Ghostwriter won't write the music for you, it has been designed
to be a “ghost" collaborator in the compositional process, an invaluable and inspirational tool for creating your music.
