PhotoScore Ultimate 6 is the fastest way to scan music for transpositions, arrangements & editions.

It's the fully-featured version of the PhotoscoreLite scanning software for Sibelius. Plus it can 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.
