ScoreFlipper Provides the “In-Store”
Experience at Home...only Better

ScoreFlipper allows your sheet music customers to thumb through an online musical score as if they were holding it in their hands, with the added ability to hear the music synchronized with the pages viewed. As playback progresses, the pages automatically and realistically turn. Customers can manually turn a page (by clicking/grabbing a page, pressing a page turn button or moving the sound playback slider) and playback advances to match the pages viewed. With ScoreFlipper, the scores load quickly using any web browser on Windows, Macintosh, iOS, Android or Linux, and there are no complicated browser plug-ins required!

Sites that use ScoreFlipper have more engaged customers that stay longer, which turns into more sales. But don't take our word for it...see an actual usage report where the customer was auditioning scores for 51 consecutive minutes!

FEATURES FOR SHEET MUSIC SHOPPERS

ScoreFlipper is the ultimate “try before you buy” tool for sheet music shoppers.

Buy Music With Confidence

Many sites require you to take a “leap of faith” and buy their pieces with maybe a page or two score sample or perhaps a disconnected sound file or snippet. Worse, some merely show the title and price, nothing more! Sites with ScoreFlipper allow you to see and hear the music simultaneously before you buy, eliminating the risk and regret of getting music that doesn't meet tastes, needs or skill levels.

Easy, One Click Playback

Scores come alive within your browser at the touch of a button. No complicated plug-ins to download/install, no waiting, no hassle.

Best in Class Experience

The in-store experience at home, only better. Pages automatically and realistically advance with the audio. Fast forward or rewind anytime using the page buttons or audio slider.

Plays On Any Device

ScoreFlipper works on your mobile phone, tablet and computer. All modern browsers supported. Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS and Android compatible.

  • Web server with Domain Name matching that keyed into your ScoreFlipper Software Build.

ScoreFlipper was developed SPECIFICALLY to allow sheet music customers to SIMULTANEOUSLY see and hear music before making a purchase, reducing the risk of getting something that doesn't meet tastes, needs or skill levels. After looking at the various means out there to show music to customers, we thought there had to be a better way. In our view, the online marketplaces and sites from the notation companies and music publishers have a number of drawbacks such as:
For customers:
  • Hard to install plug-ins that frustrate customers and don't work on certain platforms
  • Cheesy MIDI playback or no playback at all
  • Some sites only show you a small portion of the score
  • Some sites only work with Microsoft Windows
  • May not work with all common browsers
  • Does not work with smartphones and/or tablets

For sheet music retailers:
  • Only functions with specific format files or notation programs
  • High fee structures
  • Inability to sell scores at all
  • Technically or logistically difficult to upload scores or get works listed
  • Unstable technology that constantly breaks down
  • Customers are sent away from your site to another that displays the scores and takes the payments. This confuses the customer and requires them to have another password and login.
  • Requires a server and complicated server software to display music.
  • Available cloud solutions are designed for displaying magazine and newspapers, not for sheet music (no sound, etc)

We’ve created an alternative that takes the best qualities of these sites while avoiding the pitfalls:
  • Customers never leave your site.
  • We can work with the output of any music notation program (Sibelius, Finale, Lilypond, Score, etc.) or any graphics format (jpg, png, gif, TIFF, PDF or even manuscript!)
  • We have integrated playback of high quality computer or “real musician” generated MP3 file and page flipping...no more cheesy MIDI playback.
  • By showing 2 full pages side by side and giving you the ability to manually or automatically turn pages, ScoreFlipper makes you feel like you're really holding a real score in your hands. No horizontal or vertical scrolling is required for most users.
  • ScoreFlipper is compatible with every major web browser and works on Windows, Macintosh and Linux.
  • Scores and sound are synchronized together for the customer!
The benefits of ScoreFlipper over YouTube are:
  • Integrated page turn buttons
  • Integrated purchase buttons (hard and/or soft copy) that lead back to you shopping cart
  • Your logo as a watermark
  • Pages number shown in window
  • Easy to integrate live musician audio
  • Purpose built for music display means you get the job done faster
  • Simple to edit if you want to add, remove or change audio or page turn times later
  • Built in support for page turns
  • Shows two pages side by side, like an actual score
  • Legible up to Tabloid/A3 size
  • Simple options to change page size, watermark size, page start left or right
  • Custom reporting to see which customer viewed what, from what city
  • Customer can grab the corners of the pages and turn them by mouse or finger, just like a real score
  • Fun factor & Cool Factor...a customer "WOW"
On a score by score basis you can change the watermark image, size and transparency. The watermark may be added as a single image (default), tiled across the page or no watermark (useful for any free scores whereas you don't mind having the entire score visible).
  • ScoreFlipper Player — what customers experience when they come to your site.
  • Links on the ScoreFlipper Player pages that lead back to your shopping cart product pages, so customers can buy.
  • ScoreFlipper Cloud Publisher — what you use to prepare scores for playback on your site.
  • Links you enable on your shopping cart product pages that lead to the ScoreFlipper Player pages, so customers can hear and see the scores before buying.

Testimonials

Customers and end-users comment on the value of ScoreFlipper.

Wycliffe Gordon

ScoreFlipper customer, world-renowned trombonist/composer

ScoreFlipper is wonderful software that enables you to hear the music while flipping through the score prior to purchasing!!! (Yay!) Whether it is played digitally or from an actual recording, this allows the composer to present his or her music in the format so desired. ScoreFlipper is convenient and very easy to use, truly a "dream piece" for the music buyer as well as the composers/arrangers wishing to sell their music.

Jerrold Zar

Professor, Northern Illinois University

I should also mention how valuable it is for your website to offer the capability of viewing the sheet music and hearing the music played. Though I just purchased 13 pieces, the number would have been less if I did not have the benefit of previewing the music with ScoreFlipper

Bob McNally Jr.

ScoreFlipper customer, bobmcnallyjr.com

As a music publisher who has deployed ScoreFlipper on my site, I can attest to the benefits it offers. For visitors to my site, it takes all the guesswork out of purchasing music by allowing them to view the score and listen to the music before they decide to buy. You can't ask for more than that when you're looking for new sheet music!

John, Peachtree Corners, GA

Customer of artofsoundmusic.com

I wanted to say thank you for your format on your website. I listened to quite a few trombone ensemble arrangements that you have and ordered some yesterday. It really does help to be able to watch the score and listen to the arrangement. I'm so impressed with how you've brought technology together with music…improving the way we shop for music.
