Thread Name: pdf music notation to sound!!
Subject: pdf music notation to sound!!
A friend was asking about programs that could play from abc or other notation and I pointed him to Melody Assistant (for working with abc or entering the dots).

On that site he spotted something new (at least since I'd looked at it very hard): "PDFtoMusic", which takes any pdf generated by music software and plays it for you.

They do note: "Because it only processes PDF files that have been exported from a score editor software, PDFtoMusic offers a unique reliability and outstanding results. Therefore, scanned sheet music cannot be managed by PDFtoMusic."

PDFtoMusic Pro "rebuilds the original score, and exports it for instance into MusicXML format, useable in most of the professional score editors." It also can't work with scores that have been scanned.

Someday someone will be able to deal with scanning music in...
