Musitek SmartScore X2 MIDI Edition Software represents a revolutionary departure in music scanning technology. In addition to recognizing and reconstructing nearly any scanned musical score or PDF file with astonishing thoroughness and accuracy, it is also one of the easiest music-writing solutions available. Powerful and useful tools are never more than a button away. Complete layout control is at your fingertips. Change staff and system heights, horizontal and vertical margins, line spacing and note size simply by dragging control tabs. Center, offset and unify score layout with a single click. No other program handles scanned-in music so accurately, so simply and completely as SmartScore X2. Other than the human artist, nothing applies so much nuance and realism to the performance of printed sheet music.
What's new in SmartScore X2? Start with astonishingly accurate recognition of standard notation, text/lyric, dynamic/tempo markings. Codas, jumps, repeats and numbered endings all playback with uncanny accuracy. How about multi-staff tablature and percussion part recognition with its elegant new TAB editor? SmartScore X2 brings a new standard of usability and logic with support for 2, 3 and 4-voice counterpoint.
