Best $100 I have ever spent on software!


I was really skeptical of this software as I previously owned an early edition of Photoscore that never seemed userfriendly and had a steep learning curve. I open the exact same PDF in SmartScore and Photoscore and SmartScore really nailed the score recognition, the lyrics, the chords and ALL of the text! I’m seriously blown away. As a musician and music teacher I am simply blown away. I also thought that it may be sticky using this software alongside Sibelius but the file opened with ease and without errors.

It’s Good


While not flawless…it can convert a decent PDF into usable XML files for Finale or Sibelius. I need this quite frequently for arranging jobs and it expedites the entry of vocal lines and lyrics.
So I think this is a pretty great application for that reason. Certainly faster than entry from scratch when you are on a deadline which is often the case for me. Its certainly worth $100 if you need to get files into usable shape for arrangements.

Very disappointed


This has not functioned for me in the way that I saw it done in the video advertisements.

Sibelius export is greyed out for me as mentioned in the October review. Moreso, the Music XML file is a jumbled mess on multiple scans I have attempted from music with just ONE staff and a few lines of lyrics. (music from a hymnal)

Save the $100- I had hoped this would save me time on engraving…it would take me longer to clean up what this is producing rather than to just engrave from scratch.
