What is Melody Scanner? #
Melody Scanner is a mobile app / website, where you can convert your audio files, microphone recordings, or even YouTube videos to sheet music.
You can then play, edit, or even learn them using Melody Scanner.
Why do I need an Account? #
Your generated scores will be stored in the cloud, and you can access them from any device by browsing melodyscanner.com.
What is the Premium subscription for? #
In the free version (BASIC) of Melody Scanner there are some limitations in features (e.g. you can only see 40 bars of a sheet).
By buying a subscription, you support us developing new awesome stuff and in return, you get access to some more features.
You can buy Premium for one month or for one year.
How good are the transcription results? #
For Piano, our AI-based algorithm achieves an accuracy of about 86%. But the results strongly depend on how good the recording’s quality and how complex the music is.
Does Melody Scanner support polyphony? #
Transcribing polyphonic audio is a hard challenge. Currently, we can detect two musically independent voices (which is one per hand for a piano song). However, in the editor, you can create up to two voices per staff (this means four voices for piano songs).
What instruments are supported? #
Currently Piano, Singing, or Flute songs are mainly supported by Melody Scanner. But for Guitar and Violin, which are in an experimental state, you can also yield quite good results.
We are working on other instruments, too, so follow our social media to stay up to date 😉
Can the program separate out vocals/instruments? #
Currently, no instrument detection occurs. All notes get written to the same part. For flute and violin, the instrument-specific notes get separated from the accompaniment.
