AudioScore Lite


Developed by Neuratron, AudioScore Lite is a free audio transcription program included with Sibelius | Ultimate and Sibelius. With it, you can quickly turn CD tracks into digital notation and send to Sibelius | Ultimate or Sibelius for editing. In addition, you can input notes directly into Sibelius by simply singing or playing a monophonic instrument (such as a sax, trumpet, clarinet, or flute) through a microphone and then pressing a button.

The software recognizes and transcribes up to two simultaneous notes/instruments playing at the same time, up to a sixteenth note, which you can then edit before sending to Sibelius | Ultimate or Sibelius for further editing.
