ScoreCleaner Notes app writes music after you hum itPosted on 08/07/13
Here's a new iOS app that caught our attention and which might come in handy for those who can't read or write music (and we know that most in the industrial scene can't): ScoreCleaner Notes. ScoreCleaner Notes, developed by Stockholm (Sweden) based DoReMIR Music Research AB, is an instant audio recognition application. The app can translate a recording into a musical score. We tested it and it works beautifully well.
Just whistle or sing a tune and it gets rendered instantly into correct notation and MIDI through the app. You can publish it to social media, share with friends and extend it into a full score using ScoreCleaner or any other notation tool of choice. Below is a video showcasing how anyone can turn humming in the shower into a musical composition in minutes.
The ScoreCleaner app is the result of 20 years of intensive research by DoReMIR Music Research AB which was founded by Sven Ahlbäck, musician and professor at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, and Sven Emtell, MSc Computer Science at the Royal Institute of Technology. The core of ScoreCleaner technology is Sven Ahlbäcks doctoral thesis of human music recognition.
Says DoReMIR CEO Bengt Lidgard: "Our vision is to reach a wide audience of music amateurs and lovers of music who never thought they could write a song, as well as professional and accomplished musicians. This app is revolutionizing the way music is recorded and shared, by professional musicians as well as the teenage garage bands across the world. In the shower and a song pops into your head? No problem. ScoreCleaner Notes can capture your musical vision before you turn the water off."
You can get the app for just $0.99 on iTunes.
