Here's what our customers are saying about SmartScore...

"Thanks for getting it back to me in absolutely no time. It'll be used in rehearsal in the morning.
I'm telling ya, I've been saved by your dept. a dozen times since version 1 and always quickly. Dang, I wish you did commercials because I'd definitely do a free testimonial. Smartscore has been in my choir classroom since the beginning (a lifesaver, as my piano playing stinks) and I've used it for musicals, concerts, Alaska All State ( I've been making their rehearsal files since about 2000), etc., etc. With Smartscore I can whip out an error-free 8-10 page song in parts and have it online in about an hour and a half.
Guess I owe you folks part of my paycheck. It's in the mail... really!
Many, many thanks!"

"It worked flawlessly. Being a SmartScore Lite user for years, I was able to scan a tune and do some repairs. By the way, repairs are so much easier with the new UI. Love how I can choose the views. Shockingly easy to set up the playback, something I was never able to do in the Lite version. SmartScore X2 Pro also correctly followed the DS al Coda sign and repeats without intervention. While scanning, Smart Score analyzed what the DPI should be through a couple of iterations arriving at the ideal setting by itself.
I could not be more pleased."
- Joel Pierson

"Thank you for your excellent product...the results are truly inspiring. The program could read, reasonably accurately, what the human eye could not. I restored two very special anthems: "To the King" by Adam Geibel and "Transeamus" by Schnabel. Marvelous program it is indeed. Better than the competitor. It is worth every penny."
- Wycliffe Lewis

"I just got Smart Score Pro a few weeks ago. My first test was in a typical rush session. I quickly scanned 7 pages of a chorus octavio score. Then transposed it. It worked perfectly with no tweaking whatsoever. Then as a rehearsal recording I had it play the music. Again perfect. I had no spare time whatever for editorial decisions. Everything was printed in about 30 minutes including interruptions."
- Dan Bradley

"I commend you on an outstanding upgrade to the software. Many problems have been corrected and above all, in my first test, all note values were recreated with practically 100% accuracy!!! Everything worked as it should. I am involved as a musician and editor and have found SmartScore an invaluable tool. Thanks for a great job!"
- Ed Kloske

"I am SO impressed with SmartScore. It helped me tremendously the first night that I had the program. The program is so intuitive that it took very little assistance from you help files to get the job done quickly and efficiently."
- Donald Brown

"SmartScore Pro is a fabulous product. I absolutely depend on it. If I didn’t have it, I would probably have to stop singing in my church’s choir which I would miss terribly."
- John McVey

"Thank you for this excellent program. I use it now for more than a year. I have never had a better program. Keep up the good work.
A very contented user."
- B. Chapchal

"With SmartScore X, we were able to transpose a difficult piece of music the very first time we tried! We were elated! As we learned how to run the program, the second piece was done in a matter of minutes. What an outstanding product!"
- Doug Hakala

"I am surprised at the poor quality of some of the early sheet music. I am amazed at how well SmartScore handles it. It is an amazing work and I'm thankful for it."
- William Bowers

SmartScore is the best scanning/editing software I have used, and I tried most of the alternatives before buying. It's very intuitive and works just the way I think it should.
- Steven Johnson

I just wanted to say what a great program this SmartScore Midi Edition is! I wanted to create a local choir conductor's print score into practice midi files, accentuating the SATB parts for each. This nifty program performed the task accurately and simply, and was fun to use! I thought the quality for the price ($49US) was excellent. Good on ya.
- Sheri Enright

I'm lovin' SMARTSCORE.  I don't know how I lived without it.  I need it all the time.  I've got a long way to go controlling sizing and working kinks out, but SMARTSCORE is an essential for me.  Thanks for an excellent product.
