MUSITEK TO DEBUT WORLD'S FIRST MUSIC READING SOFTWARE

 OJAI, Calif., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Musitek will introduce the world's first automatic music reading software at the NAMM winter trade show, Jan. 15-17, 1993 at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, Calif. This breakthrough product is MIDISCAN for Windows and runs on IBM PCs and compatibles.
 MIDISCAN converts printed sheet music into multi-track MIDI files. Music Reading Software (MRS) is similar to Optical Character Recognition (OCR) for text. A scanner first captures images of the score. MIDISCAN automatically processes each page, extracting its musical content. The reconstructed score is displayed as standard notation within an interactive graphic window for easy point-and-click editing. The music is then saved as a multi-track MIDI file which can be loaded into any MIDI sequencing or notation software for playback through a synthesizer or MPC audio card.
 MIDISCAN enables any user with a flatbed or hand-held scanner to capture complex written arrangements and create rich-sounding musical textures within minutes. MIDISCAN is a natural extension to any MIDI sequencing or notation application. MIDISCAN significantly reduces the time it takes to manually input notes from a keyboard. User productivity is increased 5-10 times over "real-time" note input and 10- 20 times over "step-time" input methods.
 Musitek will exhibit MIDISCAN for Windows at Booth No. 2628 (Hall C) throughout the NAMM trade show.
 Musitek is a multinational music software publisher developing innovative technologies for the capture, manipulation and storage of music data. The corporation is headquartered in Ojai, Calif.
