Bravo!! Version 5


It was my first try to use music scan soft, when I purchased SmartScore3 begining of Feb. I felt that was not for big music. Big--means more than one page. Because I had to spend a lot of time to correct errors.
Next I tried PhotoScore. It was same level.
But, When I download SmartScore 5, I realized at once there is great advance here. Result has far less errors. And it is good it leaves doubtful note as blank, because insertion is easier than correction for me. I admire the effort to make this.

Re: Bravo!! Version 5


Hi all:

I'd like to add my appreciation for the huge improvement in SmartScore. I started with SS 3.0, MIDI edition and quickly upgraded to Pro. SS doesn't support my scanner directly (actually not much of anything does) so I'd scan in sheet music via another application and spend anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes per page touching up mis-recognised notes, adding dynamics, adding missed triplets, dots, ties and removing assorted detritus that SS thought was important. (Apparently lyrics were pretty unimportant.)

Still, it was faster than step-entering from my keyboard.

Now SSPro 5.2 has come along and the difference is amazing. I scanned in a piece (8 pages of SATB and piano) and almost everything was there. I hand-corrected a few missed triplets (conveniently highlighted for me because of excess beats in a bar) and that was that. Save as MIDI, move into a couple of other applications to add some backing and rhythm, humanise the piano playing, adjust MIDI patches and dynamics to taste. Start of scanning to saving the finished MIDI: two hours. With SS3 I'd still be proofreading for dotted quarters.

Thanks, guys!

Being a avid user since Midiscan 1.0 (yes, I am that old emoticon ) I can only concour with all laudation in this thread. emoticon
Now, if only those toolbars and palettes could stay in place! emoticon

Yes, without question v5.2 is a huge improvement over v3.4. It is sooo much easier to find and clean up errors on a scanned score.

I had trouble keeping tools bars in place too, until I figured out that F1 puts them right back where they started.
