Die App macht genau was sie soll.

Very good

Macht was es soll

Unbelievably Good

Am learning a string instrument and the ability to hear the scores (from where I choose) that Im trying to learn is so VERY helpful. Am DELIGHTED with how easy this app is. Accessing scores through photos is easy as pie. And immediately hearing them in the tempo of my choice is very happy-making!!! Thank you for your efforts in developing this app!!

Mediocre for Percussionists

Honestly, its pretty useless for snare music - which is why I got it. Regardless, it works well for marimba and other melodic instruments.

Awesome! Needs a little more though

I scanned a song in from a photo I saved from a .pdf file. Even with Multiple Voices enabled it would read the treble line alone and then the bass line alone. Also on a song I took a photo of it would miss some notes that were very low on the treble line. Other than that its very good! I love it! Keep up the great work.

Musical Theatre

Students who could get the app were able to download it and us it to help them with there part! Better than what I thought! This is coming from a choral director! ❤️
