With PlayScore 2 you can play any good quality PDF score and export the results as MusicXML or MIDI.

To listen to any score from a free sheet music site or one you have purchased, view the score in Safari. Once you are looking at your score, all you have to do is tap the export icon. You will see:

Copy to PlayScore 2

as an option. That’s it. As long as you have a Professional subscription PlayScore 2 will show you all the scores pages as thumbnails. Tap on any of the thumbnails to see it full size below.

Now select the pages you want to play: tap just above the first and just below the last. Then tap done.

Tip – Any purchased score will be fine, but not every score from every free sheet music site is good enough quality for optical recognition. So try selecting a single page at first so that you can listen to the results quickly. You can always tap the button upper right to make a new page selection.

If there are mistakes, try adjusting the speed/quality slider on the document settings (cogwheel).

If the score has transposing instruments turn on Auto Transposition (cogwheel).
