Reading pictures of sheet music and outputting them in audio files (midi).
This was a personal project for me that I had motivation to do, and to learn lots of different things.
In essence, the idea is that you can take a picture of a piece of sheet music with your android phone, and it would play it back to you audibly. It turned out to be a much larger project than I expected, and than I had the knowledge to do. However, thanks to great open source libraries I was able to get it to work, generally.
Special thanks to:
- Audiveris (does all of the transcribing)
- Stack Overflow (for teaching me how to do pretty much everything)
Interested in using?
It's actually kind of complicated but here is the general flow:
Picture taken from phone >> Uploaded to Nodejs server >> nodejs server calls python script that calls Audiveris >> Audiveris transcribes >> once transcribing is done, python then converts a .mxl to a .midi for listening >> phone can download new .midi file for listening
In order to use you would have to set up the nodejs server (found in /sheetplayer-server/) and edit the android application to connect to your server.
