SharpEye 2.68b Ranking & Summary
SharpEye 2.68b description
SharpEye 2.68b is designed as a professional program that can allow you to scan music with our highly acclaimed music scanning program SharpEye. You can use SharpEye to scan and convert printed sheet music into a music notation file or a MIDI file which can then be imported into a music notation program or MIDI sequencer. This process is called music OCR by analogy with the more common text OCR. SharpEye 2 outputs MIDI, NIFF and MusicXML files which can be opened by various music notation and sequencing programs including MagicScore, Finale, Sibelius and Cubase.
- SharpEye Music Reader converts a scanned image of printed music into a MIDI file, a NIFF file, or a MusicXML file. It allows direct scanning from TWAIN compatible scanners. (Most scanners are TWAIN compatible).
- Used at its simplest, you drag an image file into a window, click on a button and wait for the conversion to take place. The output is shown in conventional music notation in another window. Click on another button to save the result as a MIDI file.
- Usually there will be some errors in the output: SharpEye has a built in editor for correcting them. Almost all the editing can be done with the mouse and delete key. The input image window automatically scrolls to the right place in the image as you edit.
- SharpEye also shows warnings for each bar which doesn't make musical sense. This acts a bit like a spellchecker and directs your attention to likely errors.
- SharpEye does not cope with handwritten music.
- SharpEye does not have facilities for transposing or printing the music.
- Version 2 is more accurate, meaning you spend less time correcting errors. The more you use SharpEye the more you will appreciate this.
- Version 2 recognises more symbols. It recognises dynamics (ppp...fff) and hairpins, grace notes, chords and beamed groups that cross 2 or more staves, and accented characters in lyrics.
- Version 2 has direct scanning from TWAIN-compatible scanners.
- Version 2 has MusicXML export as well as NIFF and MIDI.
- Version 2 has numerous enhancements to the music editor to speed up the correction and deal with more symbols.
- A computer with Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000, XP or Vista.
- A Pentium II processor with 32MB RAM is a minimum
- If you want to process large images such as orchestral scores or run other programs alongside SharpEye you'll probably need more than 32Mb RAM, or the system can become totally bogged down.
- You will need a scanner to scan the printed music in.
- Windows/IE4 comes with a simple MIDI player so you can double click on the MIDI file saved from SharpEye and hear the result
