Overall it's a really solid app and it's a lot more user friendly than other softwares that scan sheet music. I love that on the android version you can adjust settings to make the scan play better, however I do wish there was an option to fix individual bars when they don't play correctly, as opposed to re-scanning and adjusting the entire piece of music. There's usually a problem with initial scans but this is a very useful app and I would love to see future improvements!

On a pixel 7 you should get accurate results. But you can export XML to any notation program e.g. MuseScore. Accuracy is all about camera technique: Make the music fill the screen Strong even light Stand music up but ensure flat Wait for perfect focus all over Image straight. Staves horizontal, bar lines vertical.

This has been a life saver! it's been 20 years since I've sight sung and I can't keep up with my choir! This has helped me practice on my own time. It's not perfect, but you can control the speed, you can repeat one measure over and over and over, you can silence other staffs to hear your own. it's great! I have a Samsung 10, with a great amount of light it captures the music almost perfectly!

I am in college band and from experience in hard pieces, with difficulty it gets you through it. It has helped a lot through years and really helped in. Now the negatives I have found really effect my experience. Sometimes if you take a picture it misses a whole chunk of the song even when the picture is perfect. This can be very frustrating at times but this is my main problem with the app. Fix this and it would be great.

The problem is with the picture. App should not miss notes. Check focus all over. Better light. Page flat. Send us the document and we can help.
