Default Re: New User - Scanning Sheets


It sounds like you folks are having a great time with music - kudos to you for leading the way!

To get the sheets you have into Composer, you can simply enter the notes using the mouse and keyboard (see the Tutorial Video at For pieces that are not long nor complicated, this may be nearly as fast as going through the process of scanning a sheet and then converting it to a .mid.

However, for longer pieces, you may indeed want to scan it to PDF and then convert that to a MIDI file which you can pull into Notation Composer. I use a cool little dedicated app called PhotoScore Lite 7 ( Click the small blue text "purchase" link at the top of the right-hand features column. Then select "Photoscore Lite 7" in the Product drop box. It regularly sells for $59, though I was able to get mine some time back on sale for $24. I've used this app for numerous pieces, and it has typically given me an excellent rendition of the original sheet.

Music is to the soul like water is to green growing things.
