I posted a little while ago about using drum tab, however I'm interested in getting some real notation software. What do you think is the best, specifically for drum notation? I'm looking for something user friendly that won't take me a forever to figure out... something simple and with flexibility, that will allow me to put whatever I want on the page. Don't care too much about midi at this point either, although it might be nice down the road...

what do you/ have you used?

What would you suggest?
