Convert PDF Score to BlackBinder format

The Blackbinder app enables users to convert any sheet music they have available digitally into a better and more congruous format.
This is lately been the challenge for the music industry into their aim to digitalize. The format of the digital scores, pdf mainly, does not achieve all the requirements this industry in its whole is willing to have.

Challenges of the PDF format in the digital transition

The PDF format, which is the universal format for most digital sheet music programs available today, is still not able to resolve the arising difficulties and security concerns for orchestra musicians and publishers alike. The Blackbinder PDF converter’s main aim is to rectify this by switching to a digital solution.

Benefits of digital scores in Blackbinder format

  • Enlargement or reduction of score sizes without altering information
  • Score synchronization during rehearsals, enabling the entire orchestra to adhere to the exact beat as per the director’s bidding
  • Immediate annotation sharing with layer management to avoid unauthorized modifications.
  • With Blackbinder’s Automatic Scroll, sheet music is converted into a continuous scroll that progresses at a controlled pace eliminating the need to turn the page in the middle of the performance

Security Benefits for Editorials with Blackbinder format
