Existing users: What's new in PhotoScore & NotateMe Ultimate 2020?


"PhotoScore Ultimate is fantastic.  I use it all the time to update my tunes files."

Phil Woods - NEA Jazz Master.  More...


More than 26 years experience in recognition technologies have enabled us to design and create the formidable OmniScore˛™ dual-engine recognition system, incredibly making PhotoScore & NotateMe Ultimate over 99.5% accurate on most PDFs and originals!

PhotoScore & NotateMe Ultimate picks out virtually every detail and even recognizes 4 and 6 line guitar tablature, 1, 2 and 3 line percussion staves. Send music directly to Sibelius, or save MusicXML for importing into Finale, Dorico and other editors.

Ease-of-use has been a central design aim right from the start, and with automatic scanning and recognition, plus licensed Sibelius-style editing interfaces, PhotoScore & NotateMe Ultimate even becomes fun and exciting to use!
