MusE is computer software, a sequencer for Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) and audio, with recording and editing abilities.[1][2][3] It was originally written by Werner Schweer and now is developed by the Muse development team. It is free software released under the GNU General Public License.

MusE aims to be a complete multitrack virtual studio for Linux. As of 2016, it has no support under other platforms as it relies on Linux-only technologies, such as Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA). It also supports the Linux Audio Session Handler (LASH).

From version 0.7 on, its music notation abilities were removed to MuseScore.[4] However, they are back in 2.0.[]

From version 2.2 MusE supports the LV2 audio plugin format and the formerly supported Linux Audio Developer's Simple Plugin API (LADSPA), Disposable Soft Synth Interface (DSSI), and Virtual Studio Technology (VST).
