ScoreCleaner Notes: Hum, Whistle, Score


The ScoreCleaner Notes app for iOS ($0.99) can turn any recorded monophonic melody into written musical notation. ScoreCleaner Notes, one of the best-selling apps in Sweden for the last few months, was developed by Sven Emtell at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, along with Sven Ahlbäck, a professor at the Music University of Stockholm.

  • Displays recordings in Standard Western Notation.

Some shots of ScoreCleaner Notes’ main screens, and the webpage that’s accessible after sharing via email:

I whistled the melody you can see above. If reading a score is one of your traits, you can see that not every note got picked up correctly. I’m convinced that my whistling skills were to blame, not the software that analyzed it. Apparently, I whistled all over the place, mixing major and minor scales like a genuine idiot. Playing it on a piano worked out much better.
