Because PlayScore exports MusicXML as well as MIDI, you can open your scores in virtually any notation program, on the Mac and PC as well as on your favourite device. Programs such as Sibelius, Finale, NotateMe, SeeScore and many more all support MusicXML. This means that as well as playing your score you can edit it, transpose it and arrange it for new instruments. Even print out parts.
‘PlayScore is an excellent app for music students at all levels’
This is one app I won’t change! – Really amazed at what they detect!
‘Play Score is an exciting new development which will benefit performers, composers and teachers in a variety of different ways. The chance to quickly hear what is on a page of music will surely be a great help to us all’
A wonderful App and really useful for students.
PlayScore just might be the most impressive app in the entire App Store. Up until now optical music recognition was very unreliable, even on a high powered PC. PlayScore is a game changer. Whenever I show it to musicians their jaws drop in disbelief. It not only works with sheet music, it works with images off of a monitor as well. This latest version is even 100% accurate with screenshots from my new IPad Pro. This is a must have app for every musician.
