Software that Converts Sheet Music in Staff Notation to Tonic Sol Fa (do,re, me, fa, etc.)

• 7 months ago

Is anyone aware of any software that converts either:
1. Sheet Music written in Staff Notation to Tonic Sol Fa (do, re, me, fa, etc.)
2. Digital Music in MP3 or Wav format to Sheet Music in Tonic Sol Fa
I am currently on Windows 10 but am willing to explore any suitable solution on other SW platforms including Mac.
Many thanks
Michael Reidy

For #1, if you mean you have some printed sheet music you want to "digitize" and convert to another format, that's a hard problem. There do exist some tools that can try to work from a PDF to create a usable electronic representation, but it tends to work not very well - think, like what the very first experimental versions of Siri probably were like. But if you'd liek to give it a shot, try File / Import PDF from within MuseScore.

As hard as #1 is, #2 is even harder - that technology basically doesn't exist for the very simplest of cases.

Basically, you're usually better off just entering the music into MuseScore manually. And then creating the Tonic Sol Fa notion from that yourself.

Hi, basically you are saying better do a manual convertion from stuff notation to Sol fa , considering we do not have any technology exists, right?
If this is the case can you share some rules behind this convertion. Like what is from Stuff notation should map with same in Sol fa? etc

Thanks

Not at all. Converting from staff notation to tonic sl fa is pretty easy - if the staff notation is already in MuseScore (or some other notation program). If all you have is a printed sheet of paper, then the hard part is getting from there into software - that's the part that realistically one may need to do manually. But once it is in the software, translating to tonic sol fa is, again, pretty easy.

Supplementary question: is anyone aware of OCR software which can convert printed sol-fa notation to staff notation as MusicXML?

I have a song for men's voices (I think TTBB) which was written in 1906 and was only published as a sol-fa edition. Getting a copy of the original manuscript is difficult or impossible...
