Most Accurate

More than 26 years of experience in recognition technologies have enabled Neuratron to design and create the formidable OmniScore2TM dual-engine recognition system, resulting in PhotoScore & NotateMe Ultimate being 99.5% accurate on most PDFs and originals.

 

Easiest to Use

Ease of use has been at the centre of the design process of PhotoScore & NotateMe. With automatic scanning and recognition, plus licensed Sibelius-style editing interfaces PhotoScore & NotateMe is now more exciting and fun to use!

 

PhotoScore & NotateMe Ultimate reads virtually all markings in printed music, and most in handwritten music, including (handwritten capabilities highlighted in bold):

  • 5-line staves (normal and small), 4- and 6- line guitar staves, 1-, 2- and 3-line percussion staves
  • Notes, chords (including stem direction, beams & flags) and rests (including multi rests) in up to 4 voices per staff
  • Appoggiaturas (grace notes), cue-sized and cross-staff notes
  • Accidentals and articulation marks
  • Clefs, key signatures, time signatures
  • Tuplets/triplets
  • The format of the page, including the page size, staff size, margins, and where systems end
  • Slurs, ties and hairpins
  • Text including lyrics, dynamics, fingerings, instrument names, tempo and technique markings
  • Guitar chord diagrams
  • Various other markings such as codas, segnos, ornaments, pedal markings and repeat endings

    • Sibelius users note: Although PhotoScore will work with Sibelius version 3 and higher, It is recommended that you use Sibelius 5.0 or higher (Sibelius 2018 for the best results) as it has greatly improved PhotoScore importing capabilities.
    • A scanner (probably connected to your computer via a USB, Printer or SCSI port), and installed TWAIN or WIA driver software.
    • Recommended for NotateMe: Touch screen or tablet with a stylus (e.g. Microsoft Surface Pro). Windows 8.1 if using touchscreen/stylus.

    • An Apple Macintosh Intel with Mac OS X 10.12+. It should have at least 512MB RAM.
    • Your computer should also have a reasonable amount of free hard disk space - at least 40MB and preferably rather more.
    • Sibelius users note: Although PhotoScore will work with Sibelius version 3 and higher, It is recommended that you use Sibelius 5.0 or higher (Sibelius 7.0 for the best results) as it has greatly improved PhotoScore importing capabilities.
