Hardware:
Apple //e with ALF Music card.
Software:
ALF Entry software. Very sophisticated actually. There is a GUI and you use the game paddles to place notes on a grand staff. One knob selects note value or rest, the other moves the selected note up / down the staff and the firing button drops it into place. You'd be surprised how quick it goes with practice.

OOPS!
Forgot to mention: Finale, Brandenburg Concerto #2 by J.S.Bach.
Programmed about 1979-80.

Yes
I think there were three versions of Brandenburg #2. Bobby Deen did all three Brandenburgs, as well as William Tell and the complete Nutcracker. He was the guy for classics. There were 40 or 50 people who contributed to the ALF song catalog. No online chatting in those days. We thought we were awfully high tech modeming songs via an Apple BBS and mailing floppies thru the post office.
