Welcome to Notation Software's free Notation Player!

Almost any musician who reads music notation will be amazed at the simplicity, elegance, and usefulness of this convenient music software utility. With Notation Player, you can see  the notation of the music as you hear  it.

Notation Player serves two main purposes:

1.To transcribe any MIDI (.mid) or Karaoke (.kar) file to sheet music that you can view on the screen as the notes play. Notation Player's built-in Internet browser helps you to quickly and easily find and download MIDI files, and then display them as music notation.
2.To play and display fully notated and annotated music notation Notation (.not) files, that have been prepared by other programs by Notation Software: Notation Musician and Notation Composer.

Notation player offers the same high-quality MIDI-to-notation transcription as do Notation musician and Composer. The MIDI-to-transcription technology was first developed in 1994 and 1995, and has continued its reputation for over more than 20 years as the world's best. Notation Player offers you that MIDI-to-transcription feature completely free, without any limitations!

We hope that Notation Player will open the doors for you to see how entertaining and educational it is to hear the music and see the notation at the same time. If that happens, we encourage you to explore free 30-day versions of the Notation software products.
