SharpEye Music Reader is a music scanning program created by Graham Jones at visiv. You can use SharpEye to convert printed sheet music into a music notation or MIDI file, which can then be imported into a music notation program or MIDI sequencer. This process is called music OCR by analogy with the more common text OCR, or OMR for "optical music recognition."
