MakeMusic has announced an upcoming iPad music app that will enable iPad users to view, print and play electronic sheet music.
Viewing music on the iPad frees musicians from sorting and managing printed music, and makes it easy to bring thousands of pieces of music to practice, rehearsals and gigs. Unlike the printed page, this music can play back, facilitating learning and selection of new titles. Music for the iPad app can be created using Finale as well as with the free, downloadable Finale NotePad.
“We’re extremely excited to be showing our iPad music notation app this week,” said Karen van Lith, MakeMusic CEO. “Enjoying Finale scores on the iPad offers a glimpse of the technology solutions we have in store for musicians.”
On display this week at NAMM, the music industry trade show in Anaheim, California, the app will be available to the public later this year.
