With SharpEye, you can scan music scores and transfer them in Pizzicato. You can modify, transpose, listen to, arrange or print them easily, without the need to rewrite them completely in Pizzicato.

Once installed, it can be used one month for free. You can test it even with Pizzicato demo, scan your music and import it in Pizzicato.
SharpEye only works on Windows. For Mac users, there is another software, see the editor's site at:
The above procedure explains the main points. The quality of recognition of music symbols may not be perfect and according to the complexity of the score, there will be some little errors to correct. But in general, the time saved can be important, compared to rewriting the score completely.
For more information, see the Pizzicato lesson on using MusicXML files at http://www.arpegemusic.com/manual36/EN561.htm
Older versions of Pizzicato Professional 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2 import only NIFF files. The principle is similar, but use the NIFF menus.
If you use Pizzicato Pro 2 or Beginner 2 or 3 or other versions that import MIDI files, you may however also import scanned sheets of music from SharpEye (or SmartScore), but you must use a MIDI file to do the transfer. The MIDI file contains all the notes but not the way in which the measures are assembled in a page. Use the same procedure as above, but replace MusicXML by MIDI. The time saved is still an advantage, because the notes are there.
With the combination of SharpEye (or SmartScore) and Pizzicato, you may scan your sheets of music, modify them and listen to them. The scanning makes it easy to obtain a new score without spending much time to encode it.
