dick greenhaus Tech: Reproducing song book with sheet music. (25) RE: Tech: Reproducing song book with sheet music. 08 Jul 15

Some words of advice from someone who does this stuff regularly.

a: Be very careful about permissions. Unless you're making a significant change (not just foermatting) you let yourslf in for a world of trouble.

b. While scanning and OCR work fine for texts, the quality of scanned music is iffy. I've found it best to actually re-enter the music. I know it's a pain, but programs like MuseScore (free) let you produce professional results. I entered some 220 or so tunes in preparing Huntington's "The Gam" for publication.

c: Publishing (if you're at all concerned with quality) is tougher than you might think)
