Guitar Edition

The perfect tool for guitarists and other soloists.

Scan and recognize multiple pages of guitar sheet music. Watch as both TAB and standard notation parts reconstruct on-screen in seconds, ready for playback and editing. Highly accurate and simultaneous recognition of tablature and standard notation make Guitar Edition a powerful and useful tool for any classical guitarist. Convert solo guitar scores printed as notation into TAB. Or vice-versa: Convert TAB scores to notation. Assign a unique instrument sound to each voice; Standup Bass to the thumb, Nylon Guitar for the middle finger and Harpsichord for the melody line. Mute or solo any contrapuntal voice to reveal inner voicings. Practice along at slow speeds without affecting pitch.

Convert TAB to notation.

Turn notation to TAB. Turn TAB to notation. Process guitar duets. The powerful TAB editor easily corrects mis-read fret fingering and note pitches. Corresponding note values automatically display eliminating rhythmic ambiguity. Contrapuntal voices are automatically displayed in color.

Playback Properties Tool

Change playback properties of tempo, dynamic and articulation markings, legatos, trills and other symbols. Apply changes to a single object or to all similar objects throughout the score. Store your own customized changes as new playback defaults for future SmartScore projects.

Contrapuntal Intelligence

SmartScore 64 automatically differentiates up to 4 contrapuntal voices per staff. For classical guitarists, that means p, i, m and a voice lines stand out in color and even more importantly, play independently and can be assigned different instrument sounds!

Simple formatting, flexible output.
