The small capella-scan version
capella-scan start can read and recognize printed originals - scanned or as PDF. If recognition errors appear, they can be corrected directly - all tools are available. Now you can listen to the recognized notes. You decide which voice will be exported as a sheet music file. You edit this single-voice file further in capella or in your preferred music notation software.
"Small" versions usually do not have the full range of functions. For capella-scan start this means: You cannot export polyphonic scores.
If you are scanning a single voice, the "small" version is just right. For polyphonic works, you can listen to everything, but you have to choose one voice before exporting.
The recognition algorithm is the same in the "large" and the "small" version.
For the "small" version capella-scan start, there are basically two use cases:
You open the monophonic file in the music notation program capella (capella can be purchased separately) and can now print it out. All editing options for the score are available to you: Transposition, changes, additions, rewriting and much more.
capella-scan start recognizes notes with pitches and lengths, rests and much more. But actually a software is unmusical. When is a dot on the sheet a note, when is it an eighth-note rest, or when is it simply a smudge? This is determined by a thorough plausibility check in the program.
