Swedish DoReMIR Music Research releases ScoreCleaner Notes, an app that enables anyone who can play, whistle or sing a tune to have it rendered instantly into correct notation. You can then publish the results to social media, and extend it into a full score using the notation software ScoreCleaner Desktop.
In 2011 the Swedish company DoReMIR Music Research launched the plug & play notation software ScoreCleaner, a very precise and easy-to-use notation software that revolutionized the European market for digital notation. Now the company has released an iPhone app, ScoreCleaner Notes, which lets anyone play, sing or whistle any melody and instantly turn it into music notation.
Songs from the app are stored in ScoreCleaner Cloud. By registering a free account with ScoreCleaner Cloud from inside the app, the user gets unlimited space for their songs. The cloud also makes it possible to sync with the desktop version of ScoreCleaner, to arrange and develop the music further.
"ScoreCleaner Notes is a perfect tool for every songwriter that comes up with new musical ideas regardless of where they are. Just sing a melody and save it, share it or continue to develop the music further on your computer",
says Founder and Professor Sven Ahlbäck from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.
ScoreCleaner Notes is built on academic research in music cognition, which seeks to explain how humans understand music on a basic level and how to decode it. From that research, DoReMIR designs different products that understand musical phrasing and artistic intent.
"Our goal is to design software which is at the service of music and people, not the other way around. With this powerful technology we can produce a complete product line of creative tools for writing music. The next releases are an iPad app and polyphonic audio recognition for the desktop version", says Founder and Professor Sven Ahlbäck.
