Accurate and affordable

Music-to-XML desktop app uses the same world-class recognition technology as SmartScore 64 - powered by our proprietary Prodigy Engine®.

Priced at only $99, Music-to-XML resides on your Mac or PC desktop ready to convert that song you need to transpose to a new key, that tenor part you want to isolate for playback or that symphony you need to deconstruct for your students.

Fast and easy

With just a couple of clicks, your musical score will automatically open into Finale®, Sibelius®, Dorico® or SmartScore®. Or simply save the MusicXML file to your desktop and it’s ready to open into your favorite music notation program.

Because of its 64-bit structure, M2XML is smokin' fast when installed onto today's 64-bit computer platfoms.


Download and convert practically any PDF music file from the Internet. There are tens of thousands of free scores including those found here. We recommend using a flatbed scanner to capture printed scores. If you need to use a phone or other mobile device, make sure you're using a quality "scanning" app such as TurboScan® or Genius Scan+. You'll be able to send your captured PDF files to the cloud or to your computer then process them with Music-to-XML.
