MADISON, WI – October 6, 2010 – Musicnotes.com, the leading digital sheet music retailer and publisher, announced today a new release of its free iPad app, designed to allow musicians to import, manage and interact with their Musicnotes.com digital sheet music library on the popular mobile device.
The app provides Musicnotes.com’s customers the ability to interact with their sheet music on their iPad by synchronizing it with their existing Musicnotes.com account. Once songs are downloaded to the iPad, they are stored locally on the device, allowing musicians to play their sheet music even if they are unable to access the Internet.
Features in this release include:
- The ability to instantly transpose the key of the sheet music
- A new mark-up tool to draw, highlight, and type on your sheet music
- Set lists and folders for managing your sheet music library
- Access to the Musicnotes.com “Free Song of the Month”
- Customizable backgrounds (paper types)
- A fully redesigned interface, including Cover Flow
“With this release, our goal was to enable musicians to do anything they would want to do with traditional printed music, but to eliminate the problems inherent in using paper as a medium,” said Bill Aicher, Musicnotes Direct of Web and Marketing. “Not only can musicians store their entire music library on their iPad, but they can mark-up their notation, instantly change keys to something more suited to their range and abilities, and even put songs together into one continuous playlist to make performing easier.”
Anyone who downloads the app also receives sheet music for five free bonus songs, allowing them the opportunity to sample the app and all of its features.
