PhotoScore is a music scanning program - the musical equivalent of a text OCR program. It is also able to convert PDF files to editable and playable notation. What do people use PhotoScore for? Accompaniment and guidance when practicing instruments Transposing (for example to bring a vocal part into range) Scanning music for use in sequencers or other editing programs; for re-arranging or extracting parts Scanning handwritten music Creating MIDI files to put on web pages for others to hear Just for fun! With PhotoScore you can scan in your favorite song, have it played back to you, change the instruments and so on! http://www.sibelius.com/products/sibelius_first/compare.html

Mit Photoscore 7 haben wir zwar eine Software, mit der relativ schnell
ein gut leserliches !!!einfaches Musikstück für 1-2 Instrumente eingescannt werden kann.
Handelt es sich dabei jedoch um einen etwas aufwendigeren Klavierauszug
oder ein Partitur, treten die Schwächen zutage.
Die Nachbearbeitungszeit verzehrt soviel Zeit, dass die Frage der
Effektivität sich irgendwann stellt.
Scannen funktioniert überhaupt nur bei ausgezeichnetem
Notenmaterial, dasselbe gilt für PDF Dateien.
In Kombination mit Sibelius hat man wenigstens die Gewähr, die Noten
und den Text, den Photoscore auch nicht korrigieren konnte, endlich
richtig zu schreiben.
Photoscore Lite als Bestandteil und integriert in Sibelius reicht in den einfachen Fällen aus.
Sibelius ist unserer Ansicht eines der besten Notations-Programme auf dem Markt.
Die Erweiterung mit Photoscore Ultimate etc. ist momentan noch nicht wirklich empfehlenswert!!!

This product works pretty well on music that was scanned from other computer-generated scores, but does not do much for handwritten scores. I'd strongly suggest trying out the trial version online before purchasing.
Be sure to clarify if it's reading a Printed or Handwritten score (there is an option when it reads the music) otherwise it will just get confused.
Again, certain scores are read with incredible accuracy, but most scores printed in the 1800's cause problems.
Try the trial version first!!
If you buy the scoring software make sure to read the instructions carefully. You will need basic notation skill to correct the scanning errors in rhythm . Where the right piano hand has a second melody the scan often places notes in the wrong rhythm
but it is simple to correct these errors. Take any elementary book of etudes, it is unlikely you will find recordings of all the songs. You can scan all of these tunes and make your own recordings at your own pace , and faster ones for later as you speed up, all in perfect pitch. The dynamics are missing of course but that is your personal contribution anyway.
I looked at other software. Many were far too costly, others were too elaborate to learn quickly . Photoscore was the best bargain.

Photoscore has a tab that allows score transfer to Sibelius. This is a great program and the basic software is
inexpensive . I now transfer my files over and edit them there. Curiously Photoscore cannot transpose a measure up to the top piano keys which sibelius can. Further the Midi file "save" procedure asks for the selected player and the options include Garritan Player. The results seem better. For example , Photoscore has trouble producing midi files that play grace notes properly, which Sibelius does.
One last comment. SongSurgeon is a great program that transposes songs to lower tempos, and much more without distortion (at least down to 45% of the original). The results are very musical with little distortion. But of course it doesn't read music so you must have a recording to begin with.
This is basically OCR software for music. It needs to recognize and interpret staves, notes, symbols and lyrics. The poorer the scan, the poorer the results: GIGO. It converts modern sheet music almost perfectly. Older engraved sheets that are yellowed or are already second-generation printings will require some editing. Smaller notation produces errors, especially in lyrics (think hymnals). Directly converting PDFs has never worked well for me unless they are unusually high quality.
Converting hand written scores only works if you follow specific guidelines for writing the scores. If the hand written scores have broken staves, stems or non-standard markings, you'll be out of luck.
So why do I recommend the software? Because if you take the time to learn the software and experiment with scanning, you WILL save a lot of time over hand copying or entering notes directly into Sibelius or Finale.
Here are some suggestions for successful conversions:
*Read the manual and understand how the settings affect the output.
*Use a good scanner. I keep an old HP Scanjet 4470 on my desk for music scanning. It will produce an actual (not interpolated) 600+ dpi image.
*Adjust the contrast and brightness settings much higher than normal to give a stark edge to the notation and staves.
*Go beyond the dpi settings suggested in the manual. I've had success using up to 600 dpi resolution on small notation. The files will be huge and processing will be slower, but accuracy will be improved. Beyond 600 dpi the files are so large that PhotoScore chokes.
*I have much better luck if I print PDF pages and use those copies to scan into PhotoScore. (When I print the PDF pages, I increase contrast and brightness settings.) This works particularly well with scores from IMSLP.org (PD website for classical music).
*Correct timing errors in PhotoScore before you send the music to Sibelius. (The reason will become obvious once you've tried it both ways.)
The software works, but like any high level application you need to invest some time learning how to use it. It's not "plug and play" by any means.
Recently I needed to transpose a tune from a Broadway vocal/piano score. The original's print quality wasn't great - stems and staff lines had some breaks. I tried the usual tricks listed above but was still getting lots of mistakes in the conversion. The technique that finally worked was this: Using my laser printer, I copied pages with increased density and REDUCED the size of the pages by 15%. When I scanned those copies into Photoscore the conversion was almost perfect. Apparently the reduced size and density closed the gaps enough to trick Photoscore into seeing unbroken lines. Even with time spent experimenting, it was still faster than transposing the ten page score by hand.
YET ANOTHER UPDATE:
I was transposing hymns again today and had to REDUCE brightness and increase contrast to get a good scan. You can tell pretty quickly if the scan is going to work or not depending on whether PS recognizes the staff lines after you click "read".
