pc music software help

Hi All does anyone know of a pc software that i can use, that alows me to turn individual choral parts off, so that only one part can be heard at once e.g turn off sop, alto, tenor. so that only the bass part can be heard. and like wise with the other parts please.

Peter, as long as your midi-files are set up as separate parts, you can download MidiPlay, and use that to isolate individual lines

You are talking about MIDI files, aren't you? That's what I'm assuming.
Another great free program is MuseScore.org. Creates pretty good sheet music, too. Support's quick and friendly. I have my students use it and now that it's available on iPad I'll use it at school, too.

Peter,
 
Sibelius music software has a "mixer" icon option showing on the top of any score. When you click on it, it opens a window that lists all the instruments and voices in your score. You can adjust the volume of any one of these to put it in the forefront, background, or mute it altogether. It should be in all available versions. You can make CD's of the score with these mixes as well. I am guessing Finale would have a similar feature.

It does indeed - there's an "instrument view" window where you can set any part to "solo" (i.e. only those parts play) or mute any number of them, and a "mixer" window where you can adjust volume of each part (so you can make a bass part prominent while retaining harmonies, for example).
