NotePerformer, Revolutionary new Technology Creates Orchestral Music from Written Notation

Share Article

Wallander Instruments lets composers hear how their compositions sound at any point during writing, without costly or time consuming rehearsals. Professionals can save valuable time, and hobbyists can hear their music performed in a fuller, more real sounding way than ever before possible.

This quarter, Wallander Instruments proudly unveiled NotePerformer (http://www.noteperformer.com/), a technology that turns a written musical score into listenable and real-sounding orchestral music. The innovative program works on any computer running Sibelius, making it perfect for everyone from professional composers to enthusiastic amateurs. NotePerformer will allow professional composers to bring more fully realized compositions to recording sessions or rehearsals and try out different ideas and approaches while composing. It will let amateurs overcome barriers of time and expense, and thrill to the sound of the music they compose played by a virtual orchestra.

NotePerformer works by looking ahead in the score and interpreting the music before playing it back, mimicking the way that live musicians approach musical performance. This creates an accurate and expressive reproduction of the written score, with realistic musical phrasing for each and every member of the software's built-in virtual orchestra.

Composers, orchestrators or anyone who dreams of becoming the next Mozart or Beethoven, can now write sheet music in their own home and hear it played back realistically at the click of a button, as if performed by their own symphonic orchestra. NotePerformer is self-consciously simple. It doesn’t require composers to manually sequence instruments, unlike other computer-based systems for music playback and performance.

The software is designed to be very easy-to-use, and is compatible with both Mac and PC. It works by replacing the playback engine in the world's bestselling music notation software, Avid's Sibelius, with its own technology and sounds.

Composers or music lovers who would like to hear how well a computer can playback their favorite classical music should visit http://www.noteperformer.com/#demos. The page contains many audio demos of famous classical works played from notation alone using NotePerformer.
