Transpose and Print
You have the right piano arrangement, but it's in the wrong key. You have the correct instrumental part, but it's in the wrong clef. You don't read music and you rely exclusively on guitar fret diagrams to play your part and your singer says "Play it in a higher key !". Problem solved: Scan, edit, transpose and print out your song in a new key or clef in just minutes with SmartScore X2.
Singing along to the moving lyrics and bouncing ball can certainly be fun when you do it with your friends and family. But it's also a useful tool for practice and rehearsal. As with nearly all features in SmartScore, the Karaoke view is customizable to suit your needs… increase font size, bounce intervals, etc.

Guitar tablature recognition and conversion is included! Our optimized fingering algorithm favors lower hand positions and "best practices" finger numbering.

Converted staff lines retain and display note values & articulations taking the guesswork out of sight reading tablature notation.
