In case you have been playing an instrument for quite some time, there is a fair chance that you would want to compose a theme of your own sooner or later. Simply put, you need to create the music sheet for tracks you are playing.
AnthemScore is an application that enables you to create musical spectrograms automatically for entire tracks of selections of the songs.
The setup is quick and, since it follows the generic steps you are accustomed to, you should not have any troubles getting around. Upon launch, you come face to face with a sleek and stylish interface that is also user-friendly and well-structured.
The main window consists of two sections, one that displays the settings you can select for processing the track and another that enables you to preview the spectrogram as it is being created. You should know that the application exhibits the keys and notes of any section you put the mouse over in the status bar. It goes without saying that the duration of the processing varies, depending on the length of the song and the configuration of your computer.
The utility works with most audio files, including MP3, WAV, WMA, M4A, MP2, FLAC, OGG, AIFF and AMR. Even though you can process most song you recorded during your jamming sessions, you can only save them as XML. Alternatively, you can export it to CSV.
As a side note, while it can process the tracks automatically, you cannot preview them unless you install additional a third-party software solution.
If you ever used note recognition utilities before, then you probably know that accurate transcription of the songs is problematic in most cases. While it is true that this is also the case with AnthemScore, the program is intuitive and, thanks to the virtual keyboard and spectrogram, it provides you with the means to identify the missing note and fill in the gaps in your tracks.
