There is a utility called PDFtoMusic Pro, but it only works with a certain kind of PDF music document. You will have to read the product description. I have found it to be extremely buggy and prone to introducing errors, but still occasionally useful for certain scores.

Neuratron Photoscore is one of several music OCR (optical character recognition) programs available. It is designed to work with Sibelius and the MusicXML specification. Music OCR is not an exact science, and you have to learn to edit the results and correct numerous errors to get useable output. I have seen several people who bought a music OCR program ...

You seem to have an Optical Music Recognition problem! It's not an easy problem to solve - as a PDF of course contains no other information other than an basic image of the music - and recognising the right shapes, with the many possible styles music can be written in is not a simple problem. Commercially, Photoscore is the main program I've heard of, ...

The dialog box that comes up when you double-click a measure with the time sig tool should have three options on the left hand side below the picture of a measure. One of the options is to restrict the change to a single measure or range of measures. If you're changing to a basic time over 4, you can also just hold down the number of the numerator on your ...

There should be a "Measure x through y" option. For a single measure, put that measure's # into each box. (The twentieth measure is 20, for example.)

I don't use Finale but I quickly found this instruction via google: https://www.finalemusic.com/UserManuals/Finale2012Win/Content/Finale/ID_MAINTOOL_TIMESIG.htm

Sounds like you want to do something similar to Andrew Sorensen, which is amazing. He uses a language called Extempore, similar to Lisp with a bit of C in it, which allows you to define and play stuff in real time. You can see this in action in this video, where he performs a piece doing live coding.

Swing doesn't affect eight notes as such but changes the meter of the bar. Any note longer than a sixteenth that falls on the 'and' is delayed. Typically, this happens with eights but it can also happen to quarters which start on the 'and'. Same for dotted quarters. Sixteenth (or shorter) are exceptions: they remain straight and are never swung (when eights ...

With regard to your second question: Whenever you pair a digital piano keyboard with a virtual instrument on a computer, you have to calibrate both the digital piano and the virtual instrument by adjusting velocity curves on the keyboard, and the virtual instrument. Your digital piano and most virtual instruments have programming facility for this. Careful ...

The folk musicians I deal with tend to use ABC Notation which is free and has software to convert to PDF. Additionally, when you get familiar with ABC, you can write tunes in raw ABC notation.

Several people advise MusicXML here but I don't see that making sense. That is an exchange format, not a format to write music in. In practice, MusicXML export/import works rather tepidly between different applications. I've seen "TuxGuitar" mentioned but the name would strongly suggest a focus on guitar I don't see in question or tags. LilyPond is a ...

MusicXML seems to be what you’re looking for here. It is imported and exported by many softwares, including Sibelius, Finale and MuseScore (which is free software). It is, however, more of an exchange format. I’m not sure any of these software can work directly on the format, and some information might be lost when importing or exporting.

The format of choice is MusicXML, which is understood by nearly every program. My favorite program is lilypond which creates really nice scores, is free and multi-plattform but being a music programming language without any GUI, fails in respect to ease-of-use. There are some frontends for it, as can be seen here, but I have no experience with them.

Use TuxGuitar, it fulfills many of your requirements take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TuxGuitar Not just for guitar, it also supports MIDI, openSource!!!.

Currently I own a Line 6 Pod X3 Live and I owned a Pod XT before that. Over the last 8-10 years I used both of them extensively, both for recording and on stage. Although X3 is supposed to have a higher sampling rate, I can't tell the difference between XT and X3 (other than the fact that X3 can process two channels at once). I never did an A/B test but ...

The Line 6 hardware devices have essentially^* the same software models as the Pod Farm software, provided that you are comparing versions of the same generation. There should be no difference in the digital modeling between them running on your PC vs. running the Line 6 dedicated hardware; however the Line 6 software has evolved over time, so if you're ...

I think this all might get a bit subjective, but in theory, Pod Farm is the same as a hardware Pod; the main difference being possibly the apparent latency [the time between you hitting a note & actually hearing it] which may be much lower in a hardware device. I have used an old hardware Pod2 extensively, & also Guitar Rig [from v1 through v5] ...

You can double click the pitch fader to reset it to 0. You can also assign the pitch fader reset action to a key in your keyboard or a control surface. 1) Preferences -> Control Manager -> Add in... -> Tempo -> Tempo Fader 2) Select the new created controller, and in interaction mode select "reset". In assignment select which deck you want to tempo fader ...

learn about beatmapping and the beatmapper wizard in SONY ACID Studio..works great for me! Stretch and fold your drum tracks to match the metronome and presto you can record other tracks onto it with ease!

Yes, it is possible to audio quantize in Reaper and all popular DAWs. In general you'll find two different approaches to audio quantize (or a combination of): with or without time stretching. The best results will depend in the material you are modifying. Without time stretching (which is nothing more than cutting a piece of audio and putting it somewhere ...
