Has anybody tried out Autoscore by Wildcat Canyon Software. They claim
it is a tone recognition program that converts any input pitch to MIDI.
If it really works as they pitch it (pun partially intended), it would
prove an interesting way to transcribe older instruments (Like roller
organs, music boxes, etc.).
It looked a bit pricey on their web site (wildcat.com), so I was looking
for input from any users before I try it. TIA,
PS: The PianoDisc/Knabe arrived last week. I'm having fun playing
their floppies and CDs (it came with 20 of them). Next I'll try some
PianoSoft/Disklavier floppies and some PianoMation floppies on it (they
claim it can interpret them). I'm finally getting my kids interested
in automated music :-)
