The Musitek SmartScore X2 MIDI Edition enables you to convert sheet music to MIDI format. It allows you to scan multiple pages of printed sheet music or process any PDF file on to a digital screen that is ready for playback and editing. You can also export MIDI files to other programs, including Apple GarageBand, Acid, Cubase, Cakewalk, Logic, or other MIDI-based software. Simultaneously view and edit MIDI data in notation and the familiar Piano Roll, Overview, and Event list formats. Updating is automatic and it comes with 4 staves per system. It processes both multi-page PDF and .TIF files. It does not support printing and does not recognize text, lyrics, TAB, or percussion.
Assign MIDI or Garritan instrument sounds. Control Playback parameters in the Playback Console or Garritan Aria player. Full transport controls (mute, solo, volume, pan, and transpose pitch). Add one of 40 preset drum patterns or create and store your own MIDI-based drum pattern.
Change playback properties of hairpins, dynamic marks, legatos, trills, and other symbols. Apply change to a single object or to all similar symbols. Store customized changes to symbols as new default for future SmartScore files.
Playback and edit your scanned music in standard notation environment (comparing the original to the recognized version). Or visualize, edit, and play back in the familiar MIDI sequencing environment. It includes Piano Roll, Overview, and Event List views.
2-Way Notation-to-MIDI-to-Notation Editing

They are carefully recorded samples of actual musical instruments and are not electronically synthesized. A list of the following sounds comes included in every edition of SmartScore X2.
