Thanks for the heads-up for the Yo Yo Ma performance of this tune ... very nice Smiley

I've been a fan of Jack Campin's "Nine Note Tunebook" for very many years and have posted links to it here in the past. With nearly 600 tunes in it now there's got to be something for just about everyone ... and all playable on a Mountain Ocarina!

I recently downloaded PlayScore Lite from the GooglePlay Store onto my Galaxy S7. Reviews are mixed at the PlayStore - I suspect because many Android cameras are not good enough to work well with this app. Reviews are better for the iOS app, probably because iPhones have had better cameras for longer.

I find that the (free) app works reasonably well with the S7, which has a very good camera. It can be hit or miss depending on the lighting (has to be bright, even and preferably incandescent as opposed to fluorescent) and the music copy (clean, clear hard copy with clear staff signatures.). Often I have to try more than once to capture a page. Despite that, the app does a remarkable job ignoring things like lyrics and stray marks and works on a page containing multiple tunes (you can choose where to start the playback).

The paid version is inexpensive ($10) and can supposedly translate its findings into music xml, which can be imported into something like MuseScore or EasyABC. I haven't felt the need to buy the paid app, but the few reviews of the paid app I saw on the Play Store reported decent results getting music xml from the app. The developer's advice is to try the free app to make sure the camera on your device works well with the free app before springing for the paid app.

Right now the Coda forum is just for beta testers.   I don't know when he will open it up to others.

I've tried joining http://codaedc.com/forum/ but never manage to actually see any posts. Is there something obscure I've missed, or is this forum just a spoof?

I believe he has or is a good sysadmin; it's a feature not a bug.

Karl not giving updates very often is nothing to worry about. I would even say that is normal.  I would love to hear something as well, that is the reason I check in at least once a day and sometimes twice a day.
