PlayScore – Snap or load a page of printed music and follow on screen as the music plays (NB make sure your mute switch is off)

PlayScore takes traditional music scanning to the next level. Using the latest techniques in Optical Music Recognition (OCR for music), PlayScore plays music as it should sound, naturally and smoothly.

Musical Notation
PlayScore understands all the symbols of standard music notation and can play all kinds of sheet music and scores.

PlayScore Pro can read scores with systems of many staffs such as SATB vocal scores and chamber music as well as piano music and songs. It can save in JPG, MIDI and Music XML.

- Want to hear a song from a book
- Play through a Bach fugue
- Hear your instrumental or voice part

Or just browse through a pile of sheet music ? then PlayScore is perfect

* And now, in the new Accompaniment Mode you can sing or play your solo while PlayScore plays the keyboard accompaniment.

Just hold your device up to the music, take a picture and watch your music come to life as PlayScore plays it right there on the screen, following bar by bar.

PlayScore works in portrait or landscape. It easily handles a whole page at a time and can even pick music out of a scene or out of text.

PlayScore writes MIDI and MusicXML files for use in virtually any music app.
