Photoscore & Notateme Ultimate 8 - Sheet Music & PDF Scanning, Handwritten Entry

PhotoScore is a music scanning program - the musical equivalent of a text OCR program. It is also able to convert PDF files to editable and playable notation.

Play back and edit scanned sheet music and PDFs. Quickly and accurately write music notation with stylus or mouse. Use on its own, or with Sibelius, Finale, Cubase and most music programs.
