Fantastic app! Where have you been all my musical life?!

I never do reviews but this app impressed me so much that I had to give my two sense! This app is worth EVERY penny. You can buy music scanning apps for 10 times the price and won’t get near the quality product that this is. This app is going to save me tons of time! I still can’t believe how accurate it is and with multiple voicing too! I’m not saying that it is perfect but it is really good! The only thing I have noticed is that It has an issue recognizing triplets and it missed a treble clef inserted halfway through the page but for just a scanning app it is fantastic! Understand, you are not getting a music editing app. I use Finale to do that but you can export what you scan on the app to finale as an xlm file. Get the app... you won’t regret it.

I am so sick of all of you ,

Not capable of what I need it to do

I’m a music teacher who is constantly coming into possession of old/obscure sheet music, many of which have no online records of their existence. The only way for me to hear how they’re supposed to sound is by tediously transcribing them into a music notation software. I was hoping that this app would be able to reduce that time and let me hear it straight away, and to say I was disappointed was an understatement.

Let’s get one thing out of the way. All the music I inputted was scanned beforehand, so legibility issues were not the problem. The problem is that the app doesn’t know how to read what it’s given. Timing was god-awful, notes were completely passed on, and it can’t distinguish between separate lines and voices to save its life. When I tried to put in a clarinet/piano duet, it sounded awful. Because there’s no way to tell the app that it was not looking at a piano piece with three staves, and therefore no way to transpose the clarinet properly. And even if it COULD distinguish, transposing only affects the whole piece, not the individual instruments, so don’t even try imputing an orchestra/concert band piece into here.

If you’re an instrumentalist who just wants to hear what your own part sounds like, maybe this app will work better for you. But even still, I’m not so sure if the price makes it worth it. Definitely not an app I would recommend. Guess that’s 5 dollars down the drain…and on a teacher’s salary no less!

Improvements for voiceover users

As someone who primarily with music broil and listen to music but yeah, it is very helpful for me to understand how something sounds when I come out look at the picture, also having an app that will allow someone who completely blind to read print music is a good tool.
There are some things that are not perfect, but technology is never perfect. I would like to subtract a form of camera guidance similar to what is found in the Microsoft’s seeing AI app and KNFB Reader app. For example, when you hold the phone in the position to take a picture, it would be helpful to know whether or not the page is filling the screen. When voiceover tells you something Mark, left bottom corner not visible, you know you have to either raise the phone a little bit or move the phone slightly in the direction it in the cakes. Of course, one could just take a picture using Seeing AI and then export those photos into the app HealthTap but, ideally this would be a lot of problems with that having this place would be very useful.
