FAQ

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 use Melody Scanner to learn them.

What instruments are supported?

Currently Piano, Singing or Flute songs are working the best. Guitar and Violin are also supported experimentally.

We are working on other instruments, too, so follow our social media to stay up to date 😉

How good are the transcription results?

For Piano our 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.

For the detection our current limit in musically independent voices is currently by 2 voices (one per hand on a Piano).

But in the editor you can create up to 2 voices per staff (this means 4 voices for piano songs).

What are the Standard and Premium subscriptions for?

In the free version (BASIC) of Melody Scanner there are some limitations in features (e.g. you can only access a part).

By buying a subscription you support us developing new awesome stuff and in return you get access to some more features.

There are two types of subscriptions STANDARD and PREMIUM.
