Does anyone know how I would go about converting a score to MIDI from Scanscore? I want to scan in some sheet music I have and then convert it to MIDI.

Hmmm, interesting concept. Would anyone tried it yet?

Your results will *definitely* vary - you can try the demo though. I've used it a couple of times, but it always seemed to need more work after than just manually transcribing.

I've noticed it depends on the score and how many markings, key signature changes, etc. are in it, and the quality of the print.
