Thread Name: Music writing software?
Subject: RE: Music writing software?
G'day all,

I'm not too sure that the device to read sheet music into a music program isn't the musical equivalent of an urban myth - but it should be almost as possible as a good OCR reading of wordson a page. I seem to remember that Dave De Santi of Wongawilli Bush Band and the Illawarra Folk Festival got some software that promised all this.

I haven't heard any more of it (and I don't remember it coming up in his 1997 workshop on computer programs for musicians) but I'l give him a nudge and find out how close such things are to reality.
