Process both notation
and TAB scores
Scan and recognize solo guitar scores. Scan and recognize TAB scores. Edit in either environment or convert your score from one environment to the other.
Convert notation to TAB. Convert TAB to notation.
Guitar tablature recognition and conversion is included! Our optimized fingering algorithm favors lower hand positions and “best practices” finger numbering. The TAB editor is powerful and easy to use. Fingering and note pitches are corrected with mouse drags. Converted staff lines retain and display note values & articulations taking the guesswork out of sight reading tablature notation.
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.
