*This product comes with both PhotoScore Ultimate and AudioScore Ultimate 7 packaged in one bundle.
Advanced music scanning
Scan music for transpositions, arrangements, and editions
PhotoScore Ultimate is the full-featured version of the PhotoScore Lite scanning software for Sibelius. This powerful software can also scan music into other MIDI software, such as sequencers. You can even use it on its own to scan in, play back, transpose, and print scores, and even save audio files.
PhotoScore Ultimate reads printed and handwritten music or PDFs in seconds—not just the notes, but also printed slurs, dynamics, lyrics, guitar tab, chord diagrams, and more. You can then edit or transpose the music, play it back, extract the parts, and print—just as if you'd input it yourself.
PhotoScore Ultimate provides a variety of time-saving features, such as a "bad timing navigator" that makes it quick and easy to find and correct rhythmic errors. There’s also a Find and Replace dialog that enables you to fix lots of identical errors (for example, in text) in a single operation.
Improved handwritten music recognition–new in PhotoScore Ultimate 7
AudioScore Ultimate 7 instantly recognizes handwritten music—no need to describe the style of handwriting. You get exceptional accuracy, including support for dynamics and hairpins, among other musical styles.
Version 7 delivers additional enhancements, such as improved, integrated support for PDF files, more accurate recognition of printed text; faster, easier, and more versatile editing; and an enhanced Pages pane.
Polyphonic Music Recognition & Transcription
Create scores from a variety of sources
AudioScore Ultimate is the full-featured version of the AudioScore Lite audio transcription software included with Sibelius 7.
Transcribe CDs and MP3s
With AudioScore Ultimate 7, you can open a CD track or MP3 file and transcribe it to a score. The software employs the most intelligent technology available today to convert up to 16 instruments or notes at a time into multiple staves, with up to four voices per staff.
After transcribing your music, you can send it directly to Sibelius or save it as a MusicXML, NIFF, or MIDI file for use in most other music programs. You can also print a professional-quality score directly from AudioScore.
Enhanced audio recognition engine–new in AudioScore Ultimate 7
Version 7 now features a significantly enhanced audio recognition engine, and more accurate transcription with improved barline determination and note recognition. You’ll also experience improved sound quality when you play back individual notes within the original recording. There’s an Instrument recognition and Instruments pane for quickly allocating notes to instruments—plus a clearer and more straightforward transcription process.
View, edit, and play back nuanced performances
AudioScore Ultimate 7 enables you to view, play, and edit the most intricate nuances of a performance—such as the subtle changes in pitch, volume, and timing.
You can also produce new versions of music using MIDI instruments—you choose which ones. AudioScore analyzes the original music in great detail, and plays it back with tremendous realism. Open one of your favorite songs and enjoy hearing it performed by a brass band or string quartet.
AudioScore also transcribes notes and rests as short as a 32nd note
Perform directly into Sibelius with a mic
With AudioScore Ultimate, you can create musical scores by singing or playing into your computer using only a microphone—no prior musical knowledge required.
AudioScore Ultimate provides instant graphical feedback about the pitch of your performance over time, so you can see mistakes and make adjustments while performing. Train to sing and play more accurately in tune and immediately see the improvements on screen. There’s even a built-in metronome if you need it.
Convert MIDI files to scores
Open MIDI files in AudioScore Ultimate to automatically create high-quality, printable scores.
Create scores by hand—no expertise needed
AudioScore Ultimate can “serve” you a set of notes, which you can quickly split, join, resize, and adjust pitch, purely on a performance level—no worrying about rests and technicalities such as the key signature, accidentals, augmentation dots, beaming, ties, etc.
Sibelius users note: Although PhotoScore will work with Sibelius 3 or later, it is recommended that you use Sibelius 5 or later, as it has greatly improved PhotoScore importing capabilities
