.jpg of score to MIDI file?

Is there anyone who knows how to make a MIDI file out of a .jpg of a score. (I hate to say we are not in a rush but....)

Ah, you said it.

Get the jpg into a pdf, and then take to google, and type in "pdf to midi". There is an app called musescore that I think does this, I have also heard of ab app called scanscore.

Let us know how you make out.

Thanks Jeff.
First you made me laugh (always good!)
then you got me started.
1) jpg to pdf
2) https://musescore.com/import
3) Load musescore file
4) Export as MIDI

Scanscore is US 179,-
Sibelius 7 does it too, but person I'm doing this for does not have it (nor me)

So you are asking how to rip off someone else’s score and pass it off as your own?

Hm that doesn't have to be the case. There can be plenty legit reasons to want this. I've had this scenario a lot myself where I just want to extract my own parts from a larger score and be able to engrave it in a way which is usable for me. Not all engravers make usable choices when creating scores/parts.

Sibelius had some additional applications from other vendors which worked similar:
  1. Myriad PDFtoMusic
  2. Neuratron PhotoScore.

That does not sound legitimate!

If you want to know how a score is done, you do not take a picture of it and try to convert it into a MIDI file. You either learn to compose it yourself or work with the original composer(s) to be taught how it was done.

Technology has enabled a generation of people who do not want to learn anything about how to create music. Shameful.

Good to see you are the arbiter of what is legitimate or not. I'm talking about extracting parts to play and making legible scores so that it is easier to read. Or trying to turn hand written scores into digital ones. Learning how to compose has nothing to do with that in the first place.
