The Pro Way to Digitize Your Sheet Music

Neuratron PhotoScore Ultimate 8 Music Scanning Software "reads" virtually all markings in printed music - and most in handwritten music (it includes NotateMe, Neuratron's handwriting app for tablets and smartphones). Powering PhotoScore Ultimate 8 is Neuratron's impressive OmniScore dual-engine recognition engine, the result of almost two decades of music OCR expertise. Over 99.5% accurate on most PDFs and originals, PhotoScore Ultimate 8 picks up virtually every detail. And its unique ability to read handwritten scores makes it even cooler. With automatic scanning and recognition - and Sibelius-style editing - this software is a pleasure to use. Concentrate on the creative tasks and let Neuratron PhotoScore 8 handle the clerical work.

Handwrite your scores on any device

Neuratron's NotateMe music handwriting app has been a huge success on tablets and smartphones - and now it's integrated into PhotoScore 8. So now you can handwrite scores on your PC or Mac, tablet, or laptop, then painlessly digitize them. This works great with Microsoft's Surface touchscreen and stylus, as well as other pen devices, and of course your mouse or trackpad.

Amazingly powerful studio tool

Neuratron PhotoScore Ultimate 8 lets you extract parts, reformat, transpose, print out, play back - you name it. Take it from Sweetwater - PhotoScore Ultimate 8 can read just about anything, even recognizing 4- and 6-line guitar tablature and 1-, 2-, and 3-line percussion staves.

Flexible file formats

With Neuratron PhotoScore Ultimate 8, you can send directly to Sibelius, save as a MusicXML or NIFF file, and open your score in Finale or another music program. Save as a MIDI file and open in Pro Tools, Sonar, Cubase, or another sequencing program. Save as an AIFF (Mac OS X) or WAV (Windows) file for burning to CD or converting to MP3. Flexibility is the key with Neuratron PhotoScore Ultimate 8!

Performance mode

PhotoScore Ultimate 8's performance mode lets you easily read music off the screen while you're performing. Designed to fit into your workflow, Neuratron PhotoScore Ultimate 8 is your perfect studio assistant.
