Using a technology known as Optical Music Recognition (OMR), this application allows the user to import sheet music via scanning the printed pages or importing of PDFs which can then be turned into MusicXML or MIDI files. These files can be opened in music notation applications such as Sibelius, Finale and Dorico or into sequencers and digital audio work stations like Protools, Logic, Cubase and others. This course covers the workflow and all of the features for import, cleanup and export of these files. You’ll see that learning a few simple steps can save hours of time compared to recopying sheet music for scratch.
