When you open a Work Page, you’ll notice tabs for Digital Scores and Print Editions in the top section of the screen:
This article explains the difference between the two score types, and how to switch between them when browsing the library.
As the name suggests, Digital Scores have been completely rebuilt in a digital format using our AI digitization process. These scores are still in the prototype stage, but are completely flexible and offer advanced features like customizable layouts, transposable content and automatic highlighting.
We see Digital Scores as the future of sheet music and will eventually offer all the music in Enote in this format. However, digitizing and quality-checking each score takes time. You will notice that some scores are marked as Coming Soon (or "CS" on mobile devices) on the Digital Score tab, which means scores for this work are still being digitized.
Print Editions are static scans of the most reliable published editions of the work.
Our musicologists assess all available editions of each work to find the highest quality source material for our Digital Scores. Those chosen for our Digital Scores are also added to the library as Print Editions to put more reference material at your fingertips.
You can see the difference between a static Print Edition and a fully Digital Score in the image below:
As Print Editions are static image files rather than native digital music, they cannot be reformatted or transposed like a Digital Score. However, useful features like Score Lookup and navigation by movement are available in these editions, and support for Quick Jumps and Smart Annotations is coming soon.
You can view the available Digital Scores and Print Editions using the bar at the top of the Work Page:
If more than one Print Edition is available you will be prompted to select from an Available Editions menu before progressing to the Score View:
You can also switch between available Digital Scores and Print Editions directly from the Score View. Tap the icon to open the Available Editions menu, and select the version you would like to open.
