a handy way for professional musicians to digitalize the paper musical notes
SmartScore Pro Edition is a program designed by Musitek Corporation. It was specially created to scan musical notes in a paper version so they can be edited later.
Scanning: the main function of the SmartScore Pro Edition is to detect and recognize musical notes written down on a paper sheet. For that, it uses a complex system of symbol recognition such as choral, transcripts and keys.
Compatibility: what is interesting about SmartScrore Pro Edition is that it is able to record a high number of partitions. Indeed, it supports not only scanning paper versions of scores but also PDF, MIDI, as well as NIFF.
Database: the program database is rich in musical chords. It contains a total of 700 musical chords from different instruments. Thanks to its integrated OCR (Optical Character Recognition), it is also possible to extract words from the paper.
Setting: one of the particularities of SmartScore Pro Edition is that it provides various settings to allow the user to manage the file. For instance, it has a printing and previewing option, a record button among others.
