Surprisingly accurate

Doesn’t get triplets (as stated), but at first trial seems to be quite accurate. I export xml and import into guitar pro to clean up, which is easy.

Excellent App!

I’ve been using this app to scan my printed scores and export them in musicxml format for editing in Dorico. I’ve been incredibly impressed with this app! It works significantly better than the “pro” scanning apps that cost hundreds of dollars.

Not for instrumentalists

This does not let you read music properly.

Excellent App

This is the kind of apps I have been looking for for years. The notation recognition is accurate, does the job beautifully. If needed I can import the score to Muse using xml file for final touch up. I can’t ask more of it. Exactly what I need.

Skip the note...

It's a good idea. I was going to make this app if I can't find any.😜 I’m glad you made the app but not perfect yet. It still missed the sharp or flat note or skip the note. Darn I just waisted $5
