PDFtoMusic is a compact Windows application built specifically for helping users convert PDF score files into music.
It boasts a clean and intuitive layout that allows you to set up the dedicated parameters with minimum effort.
As soon as you upload a PDF file into the working environment, the program automatically analyzes it and displays the music related-elements. It is important to mention that the utility works only with PDF files, so you cannot import scanned sheet music.
The tool gives you the possibility to play, pause, or stop the current audio selection, adjust the volume, alter the tempo, go to the previous or next score page, zoom in or out, as well as switch to a full screen mode for a better focus on your work.
What’s more, you can print or export the sheet music to BMP file format, extract the audio streams and save them to MID, MYR, KAR, WAV, or AIFF file format, and view information about the PDF files, such as title, subject, author, creator, producer, page number, and others.
One of the best features included in this utility enables you to search on the Internet for a score file by simply typing in the name of the artist or song, and automatically import data into the primary panel.
Last but not least, you can undo your actions, and choose between various musical instruments (e.g. whistle, electric guitar, trumpet, violin, piano).
During our testing we have noticed that the tool carries out a task pretty quickly and without errors. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.
All things considered, PDFtoMusic offers a handy set of parameters for helping you transform PDF score files into songs. If you are looking for advanced functions, you can check out the professional version of the program, which lets you export the information to MusicXML format, which is supported by most of the professional score editors.
