Subject: RE: Chord Req: Flanders and Swann - Slow Train
I did come across a program called MIDIscan some years ago. I think I still have a copy of the demo on a floppy disk somewhere.

The demo worked sufficiently well that if you scanned a page of a score, and it made a MIDI file, my program FIND MIDI CHORDS would give you the chords!

Like most OCR, the output was not 100%, but good enough to recognise chords.

Bit of a roundabout method, but it worked.
