Well, if you approach it this way, you could as well say "software looping 
is not made for musicians".

But seriuosly:
I have wasted so much time in the past with graphical user-interfaces that 
just didn't work exactly / took too much time for notation.
After the initial learning curve, Lilypond has made my life much easier.

Also, the jEdit LilypondTool provides a very useful user interface. 
Installation is not that hard:
- Install Lilypond (http://lilypond.org/web/install/ )
- Install jEdit (http://www.jedit.org/index.php?page=download )
- Install LilypondTool automatically with jEdit plugin manager 
(follow instructions: http://lilypondtool.organum.hu/86.html)

Use excellent Lilypond documentation (http://lilypond.org) to get started.

Anyway, I don't want to convert anyone who is happy with Sibelius etc. 
Just want to encourage you to test it if you haven't quite found the right 
notation tool/approach.

best regards
