New Features In Version 3

Project Window:
Scan multiple pages of printed sheet music and with a push of a button, watch it as it reconstructs onscreen in seconds; ready for playback, transposition, part extraction, reprinting or exporting to other programs. An interface includes split screen viewing of both the original scan (in yellow) and the editable SmartScore ENF view (in white).

Recognition Options
Precision recognition of lyrics, text, fretboards and chord symbols
Precision recognition of guitar chord symbols makes transposition of song sheets nearly instantaneous. New options for marked or implied triplets, special lyric layout and other options to make scanning more accurate than before.

Guitar Chord Editor
Guitar chord / fret symbols are recognized with more accuracy. Transposing the key signature transposes guitar fret and chord symbols automatically. Change or add new finger patterns quickly and easily with the Guitar Chord Editor.

Score Structure
Extract parts to new documents, turn parts into a conductor’s score or a score into parts. Optimized parts are intelligently linked and can even be re-linked.

Error Check
SmartScore find and locate mistakes, including ones made by the publishers.

Piano roll, overview and MIDI event list give complete control over the underlying MIDI playback structure. Velocity and Tempo graphical controllers allow for smooth dynamic shading.

Edit Shapes
