Below are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about intelliScore Ensemble Edition. If you have a question that isn't answered below, feel free to email us at You will receive a prompt, courteous response usually within 24 hours.


What is the Ensemble Edition?

IntelliScore Ensemble is the only product in the world that helps you transcribe music by listening to a musical audio file (CD, WAV, MP3, WMA, AAC, AIFF) comprised of several different instruments including drums and creating a multiple track music score in the form of a MIDI file containing an estimate of the notes and drums played, broken down by instrument.  Technically, this is known as multi-timbral conversion.

IntelliScore Ensemble is the only product in the world that can listen to a percussion track comprised of several different drums and convert it to a multi-drum MIDI file. Unlike other products that merely find the beats in recorded audio and trigger a single drum, intelliScore actually listens to the sound of each drum hit and attempts to identify which drum(s) produced each beat.

IntelliScore Ensemble also includes several tools to help you be more productive with multi-instrument music. Using its Score Builder, you can build a multi-track MIDI score one track at a time by singing or playing a non-MIDI instrument. Its Lead Sheet Creator can help detect the lead part from a multi-instrument audio recording and create a MIDI file containing this lead along with detected chord names. Top


What are ensembles?

Ensembles are a grouping of instruments that perform together to create a single piece of music. Top


How do I use ensembles?

Although intelliScore’s capabilities are revolutionary, to obtain best results you need to tell intelliScore what instruments are present in the original music.  If desired, for higher accuracy, you may also specify the pitch range played by each instrument in the musical piece, the polyphony or each instrument, and which stereo channel it’s on.  You can mute any instrument channels that you don't want written to the MIDI file. IntelliScore includes 31 predefined ensembles to get you started, plus you can edit these or create your own through intelliScore’s Ensemble Editor.

When converting drums, you specify a drum kit.  A drum kit is the set of percussion instruments (such as drums and cymbals) used in the recording. IntelliScore Ensemble includes several predefined drum kits to get you started, plus you can edit these or create your own through intelliScore’s Drum Kit Editor.


How accurate is it?

Generally, best results are obtained from music containing only a few instruments.  If you use the proper conversion settings, intelliScore Ensemble can often assign notes to the correct instrument about 75% of the time.  You can then use the included Anvil Studio or your own MIDI editing tool to see the music score and clean up the notes and instrument assignments.

Note that if the music contains two or more instruments that are very similar to each other, such as a violin and viola (or for example acoustic snare and electric snare in the case of a drum solo), intelliScore will have a harder time distinguishing between them, just like a human would.

Although intelliScore Ensemble can convert music with pitched instruments and percussion mixed together, best results are obtained when they are separate. Top


How do the Ensemble and Polyphonic editions compare?

You can choose the Polyphonic Edition to convert audio to score if your music contains only one type of instrument and no percussion.  That instrument can be polyphonic (playing several notes at the same time) or monophonic (one note at a time).

If your music contains more than one instrument at a time or percussion, you should choose the Ensemble Edition to obtain the best results.  The Ensemble Edition also contains all the capabilities of the Polyphonic Edition and works equally well with single-instrument music.
