Leoné MusicReader launched version 2.0 of its flagship product MusicReader Solo.


Most of the improvements are based on comments from the MusicReader user community. We’re told that 75% of all user comments have been implemented in this release and others are planned for future releases. In order to thank all its users for their support the new version is completely free for existing customers.

One of the improvements is the enhanced support of the digitizer pen used on Tablet PCs and pen tablets. Musicians can now use the back of this special pen to erase their annotations resulting in a more natural interaction. Drawing on the sheet music is now pressure sensitive, making the annotations more fluent. There is now also (a better) support for the Tablet Input Panel (TIP), onscreen keyboard / drawing panel of Windows XP Tablet and Windows Vista.

The new release also contains major improvements on both speed and performance. The program and library startup time are approximately 50% faster and the menu loading about 75% . The application also has better memory management and solves all known stability problems.

The user interface of the new version has also been improved. The most noticeable changes are the new menu icons with more modern designs. Also the menu structure has been improved to be able to house more functionality, like the new menus for the tuner, metronome and music player.

The completely new functionalities of this version include printer support and a sound recorder; musicians can print the music with annotations and can record their own performance. As an alternative to the eraser it is now also possible to undo and redo changes in the annotations, something experienced PC users are used to in other applications.

SheetMusicSearch, a search engine for sheet music, was also launched today. This search engine contains sheet music from several websites and shops. It can find digital and printed music, both usable with MusicReader and as printed music. For more information about SheetMusicSearch see www.sheetmusicsearch.net .
