KeyScore is a full-featured digital sheet music app and is an amazing tool for any musician from novice students to professionals. The app provides a wealth of features to let you scan, import, annotate, organize and play all your music from your iPad. With KeyScore's intelligent features you get amazing functionality including automatic page turning, a music-aware camera-based scanner, smart audio playback and more. Key Score comes with some music scores built in so you can instantly try it out! And then, easily add your own music!

*** Automatic Page Turning ***
Automatic page turning and tracking is a novel feature KeyScore offers to musicians and of particular use to pianists. KeyScore can extract musical information from a Score and create an audio model. When tracking is enabled, the audio model is consulted to allow the app to track your playing. As you reach the bottom of a page, part of the next page will be shown. When you reach the top of the page, the page turn completes. You can keep playing with both hands without visual interruption. No more need for a page turner or bluetooth foot pedal!

*** Scan and Edit ***
- Use the camera scanner feature to convert your physical sheet music.
- Deskewing and uncurling of the photo handles problematic images typical from a music book.
- Automatic background detection can correct shadows.
- Automatic staff detection and margin size settings

*** Audio and Video Tools ***
- Recording & Playback: General purpose recording and play-back tool and enables KeyScore to record your playing anytime you use tracking mode. Since KeyScore can read and understand the written music, it lets you play back from anywhere in the score just by tapping the measure you’re interested in.
- Import Audio: Import external audio, which may be a professional recording. Like with your own recordings, KeyScore aligns the written music with the audio allowing you to easily listen to just a measure, a line or the whole recording and compare between multiple recordings.
- Video Export: Create and share movies of your playing while the written music is displayed

Great app with even better customer service

I finally decided to get an IPad for my music as I have played outdoors a lot this summer (thanks COVID). I got tired of struggling with the wind and turning pages in the wind. This app helps me organize my music into programs and even turns pages for me. It’s been a learning process, but the educational tools provided have been very helpful. Whenever I’ve had a problem I couldn’t figure out, I’ve been able to contact customer service and have gotten a prompt response. One night I was struggling to get page turns to work for the next evening’s program. Tim helped me that evening and made some edits to my music to get them to work. I especially like the half page turns that don’t leave me in limbo until the full page is turned. I was also able to mark my music using my finger until I got my pencil. I’m also saving money on printer ink which has been adding up fast lately since much of my music is sent to me via email now.

A Life Saver for Performers and Teachers

This app is a amazing. Imagine having your pages turn without the use of a foot pedal! This is a life saver for pianists and especially organists who already have enough to do with their feet. I am a classical pianist and this app worked for contemporary pieces that had changing meters and unusual sounds. Also, your scores can be organized in one place so that you have them with you when you are away from your studio. You can annotate your score and share it with someone, as well as record what you are playing to share with someone (or not!). The scan feature is so helpful.....no more fussing with the scanner on your flatbed printer. Just take a picture and it gets converted to a pdf.

I have been recommending this to colleagues and students. Give this a try.

Impressed‼️ Don’t miss this blessing.

This KEYSCORE app is a treasure....I’m having so much fun watching my offertories being transformed right before my eyes into a bright, clear, & cleanly marked copy. This app is truly amazing with features like expanding margins, adding fingering, jotting text notes including changing handwritten into text, using colorful highlighting, rearranging the order of songs, printing a page, plus undo, erase and even white out options. And the BEST feature is the auto page turn...I can now play a 4-page offertory straight through, focusing on my sacrifice of praise rather than when to turn the page. As church pianist, I can see me easily leaving my pile of song books and notebooks at home and taking my iPad instead. And all this from a senior citizen (age 78). 🧑🏻‍🦳PTL!
