One of the best things about smartphones and tablets has been their significant contributions to modern music. From simple metronomes, digital guitar pedals, and tuners – all the way to recording music on the device itself, there’s no doubt how useful they are to musicians. But there’s one thing that hasn’t changed much for the past 500 years, and that is sheet music. People still turn to sheet music that’s printed or written on paper but now, the folks at SheetMusic LLC have a plan to change all that.
The company has announced that its upcoming app, iSheetMusic, is going to change the way musicians read music. iSheetMusic for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch lets users get rid of paper sheet music by letting them read it off their iOS devices instead. In addition to providing digital sheet music, the app has features such as an adjustable tempo and a marker to let users know where they are in a song. Paired up with the auto page flip feature, this makes iSheetMusic the perfect companion to play music along to.
And if you’re wondering where you’ll be getting the sheet music from – SheetMusic has partnered directly with Hal Leonard Corporation and Alfred Music Publishing to give users access to the world’s two largest sheet music libraries. There should be no trouble looking for your favorite songs to play to.
Instead of lugging around folders of papers containing sheet music, musicians will soon be able to carry with them a single tablet instead. The only problem is when your iOS device runs out of battery – printed sheet music still works better in this situation. And it’s much easier to replace printed pieces of paper in the event of spilled coffee – can’t say the same for electronic devices. Grab iSheetMusic from the Apple App Store.
