Through years of struggling with mice, keyboard shortcuts, and the like, stacks of hand-written notation alongside the computer, this was what I imagined – and probably you, too, if you work with handwritten scores.
NotateMe promises to take hand-written notation from your fingertip or stylus and recognize music, from simple lead sheets to full orchestral scores. For those working with scores, it’s what you dreamt devices like the iPhone would do from the beginning.
NotateMe is now in public beta, and we hope to talk to the creators, but wanted to get your feedback first about what you’d like to know. A lot of recognition features are already there, and you can export to MIDI or MusicXML to finish your score in software like Sibelius or Finale, readying it to share with others. NotateMe will also play back your score ideas.
