SnapNPlay music Demo

SnapNPlay music Demo


Your phone can sight read sheet music! "SnapNPlay music" is the first app that allows you to take a picture of sheet music and play it back. It is designed for the students of music. Snap a picture of sheet music and watch the notes light up in time as you hear the music played back to you. Select an instrument to watch it play the notes in time to the music. Choose between piano, recorder, guitar, violin, viola, cello, and bass. Watch the positions on the instrument light up and learn to play with ease!

For optimal results hold your camera as close as possible to the line of sheet music. Do not include clef, key signature nor time signature in snap. When holding the camera too far away, it doesn't work as well.

The demo version has limited features. You cannot save a snap, combine snaps, and you will only be able to view half the notes light up on the instruments. The piano will light up all the notes.

The workflow:
Snap a picture of 3-4 phrases of sheet music. Fit the music in the rectangle and keep it steady. Select the Key and Clef. Edit the music. SnapNPlay will detect most notes and rhythms, but you will have to analyze and correct the music. Play the music. Learn the tune. Select an instrument. Save the snap. Snap the next 3-4 phrases...save it. Snap some more..save it. Then you can combine snaps that you saved and hear an entire tune played while watching the notes light up in time. Adjust the tempo or transpose the tune. Sing it, play it on your fiddle, recorder, viola, cello, bass, guitar or piano. Do you want other instruments to be included? Email the developer.

Email me when you experience difficulty. Email me when you have suggestions. Send me your snaps. I'd love to see them so I can analyze and make the app better!

Currently the SnapNPlay algorithm only tries to detect notes, their length and accidentals. It does not try to parse triplets, rests, or grace notes. It does a great job at helping you learn a tune and learning to read sheet music. Just spend a few minutes snapping and learning. After you learn the tune, you will always be able to play it!

Not working well Had a good picture, yet it kept missing notes or misinterpreting other notations as notes.

Excellent! My daughter asked hoe her sheet violin music should be played. With this app I took a photo of the top line, made a couple of easy edits where marks on the paper were thought to be notes, and then it played the tune perfectly! She then remembered the rhythm and xould do the rest by herself. Very helpful app!

Sucks First it was snapping for five minutes straight, then it started playing and there is no percussion option. This is a terrible demo if you want us to buy the full version.

Great concept Does not detect notes in a clear snapshot. Maybe it's better in the $ version.
