Post by Aigle on Sat Jun 06, 2009 8:40 pm

Is there any music software that can play music from the pdf file?

You cant play the music directly from the PDF, but there are programs that can convert them to midi. I use PhotoScore Ultimate ( not free, but you can get a demo ) to convert the PDF's to midi ( because my sheet reading skills arent that great, since I read it in "piano roll" for in a midi program ). Anyway, the pdf-sheet has to be in ok condition for the program to be able to scan it correctly.

I also use photoscore but i find that the sheets have to be in better than ok condition. Plus you can scan in printed sheets which is awesome.

And If the sheets are not that well (judging from if photoscore can read it or not) you could try to use "guitar pro" to reconstruct it... but I think that`s gonna take some time xD

You can do the same with photoscore. If the sheet is in bad condition it will scan as best as it can and you can modify the music afterwards to cleanup any errors

If a sheet is in bad condition I just run my photoshopskills to clean it up a little bit, and it'll get smooth as silk... But I've found myself willing to learn to read a sheet properly since that Star Wars sheet never read properly.

I started practicing it yesterday, and I already find sheets easier to read. I actually downloaded Timbaland's Apologize 10 minutes ago, and practising the sheet instead of making it to midi, as you can tell, i did convert pdf's to be able to look at it as piano roll, now I dont really need that Smile

Yeah i guess that's the problem i have. I often whack it in photoscore just so i can hear how it should sound then i mostly ignore the timing on the sheet itself and just go from memory. Bad form i guess
