From music sheet to MIDI (third round)

Today is the time to try another piece of software: PhotoScore Ultimate 6

As with the others, we start with an easy one, the Joropó piece, which comes from a PDF file generated with a music notation software. And PhotoScore Ultimate 6 gets this:


A perfect performance. It is a pity that I could not save it to a MIDI file to try to load it with Rosegarden, since this was the Demo version, and that feature is not present.

The old scanned document at http://www2.kb.dk/elib/noder/rischel/RiBS0848.pdf does not get recognized very well with this program either:


And for my scanned copy of my book, PhotoScore does a quite decent job, although not better than SharpEye:


 It is a pity that the demo version cannot export to MIDI, because it would be nice to be able to compare PhotoScore's generated MIDI to that generated by SharpEye.
