There have been a relatively large number of OMR projects falling in and out of obscurity, forked, taken over, mixed with closed source and then die. I was looking for an OMR package in portage to scan PDF sheets of music and then split different voice parts out into separate midi files - but if a single application will do the full workflow then I would be more than happy.

I understand there are a few apps by/for Apple, who seem to be the favourite OS for arty users, but I no longer have OSX running here or any applications for it. There are also a number of other applications some of them for Linux - but I haven't found one yet in portage (TBH I wouldn't know its name off- hand). From what I read here Rosegarden will not perform OMR itself, but will import various file formats: -- Regards, Mick
