Convert TAB to notation.

Process single-line tablature scores and instantly convert to standard notation. Our powerful TAB editor easily corrects mis-read fingering and note pitches. Intelligent display reduces rhythmic ambiguity: Contrapuntal voices automatically highlight in color. Note values automatically link to fret fingerings.

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.
