SharpEye
Music Scanning

logo

Scan music with our highly acclaimed music scanning program SharpEye. You can use SharpEye to scan and convert printed sheet music into a music notation file or a MIDI file which can then be imported into a music notation program or MIDI sequencer. This process is called music OCR by analogy with the more common text OCR.

German version: Hier geht es zur deutschen Version von Sharpeye 2.

There is a version for RISC OS - see the links page, but no Mac OS version. We were intending to produce a Linux version, but there has been so little interest that we no longer expect to do that.

There is a complete version history for SharpEye 2. This is useful if you already have SharpEye and wish to check whether a bug has been fixed or a feature added.
