: Music software is one of the most important indicators of technological advances in the field of music. Along with the advances in information technologies, the variety of music software has increased significantly, especially with the widespread use of smart phones and their features. Music software suitable for use at all levels from tuning to professional studio recordings make important contributions to musical life. In this study, it was aimed to develop a scale in order to determine attitudes of music students towards music software. A systematic process has been implemented in the development of the scale. While preparing the item pool of the scale, attitude and sub-components (cognitive, affective, behavioral) were taken into consideration. The expressions in the pool of items created were evaluated by the four experts, one in the field of Measurement and Evaluation and one in the field of Turkish Education, and two in the field of Music Education, for scope validity. Expert opinion was applied for the coverage and the 36 items draft scale was applied to a total of 212 music students (bachelor’s n=152, master’s n=39 and Ph.D n=21). Implementation of the scale was carried out on a voluntary basis after obtaining permission from the relevant departments. Factor analysis was performed to determine the validity of the structure. As a result of the exploratory factor analysis, it was determined that the scale consists of 2 factors and 17 items. The validity of the obtained attestation was confirmed by confirmatory factor analysis. The Cronbach’s alpha reliability coefficient of the scale was .97, while the reliability of the sub-scales was .95 and .97. As a result of the findings, it was determined that the scale measures the attitudes towards music software in a valid and reliable way.
