Serious musicians know that keeping their sheet music safe and accessible is critical.

Weighing in at just over 4 pounds, the MusicPad Pro Plus will display your music without the need for external music stand lighting. You can even annotate and make color notes right on the page of music, zoom in or out, add or erase rehearsal marks and much more. This is truly the 21st century way to manage all your sheet music.

View your music on a large, easy to read, backlit touch screen
The large, easy to read 12.1-inch TFT backlit LCD color display eliminates the need for external music stand lighting, thus eliminating clutter. What's more, the low glare touch screen lets you make notes in your own handwriting, correct errors or highlight key passages in a variety of colors. Go ahead and add notes or symbols to each score. A special look-ahead feature with patented half-page turn means you'll never miss a single note. To turn the page, just touch the screen. Or use the display in landscape mode to view two pages at a time. Page turns can also be accomplished by using an optional foot pedal.

Sweetwater Advice

Rob Russell

From the moment I turned the Music Pad Pro on I kept thinking of situations I have been in that I wish I had one. In the studio, classroom situations, live performances, or practicing at home, the Music Pad Pro would have been an incredible tool to bring a higher level of quality and productivity to each situation. In the studio I would have loved to been able to avoid having one or even two big metal stands for each musician altering the way the instruments sounded. And having AC for stand lights strung all over the studio. Not to mention hours of editing out audible page turns from recordings that could have been avoided by the foot-switched page turns. It is that plus the incredible annotation capabilities, built in tuner, and metronome, and more that would have been very beneficial to all of my experiences from the studio to my own home. I will be calling everyone I know to tell them about this product.
