The current version, SmartScore X2, was released by maker Musitek in 2013.
Smartscore X2 Pro Mac
SmartScore is a software product which performs optical character recognition on scanned music and converts it into a digital musical score that can be played back as a MIDI file, or exported as MusicXML to music engraving programs such as Sibelius and Finale.
Maximum PC reviewed SmartScore in 2000 and said that it 'gets the job done easily,' but was difficult to navigate and had a crowded layout. Also, some scores scanned by Maximum PC weren't recognized by the software.

Researchers at the University of Florence conducted a performance assessment of optical music recognition software in 2007, and found that software developed at the University, Object Oriented Optical Music Recognition System, as well as SharpEye 2 outperformed it.
In 2009, a review of SmartScore X in Music Educators Journal found the scanning performance to be 'extremely accurate' with professionally engraved music, but said the program was only able to 'minimally interpret' handwritten scores. The reviewer stated that the user interface was confusing even for advanced users, and that the manual offered 'little or no help, especially for the novice'.
In 2011 a review in PC World said the results with clearly printed sheet music were accurate, but that the interface had too many floating and docked toolbars. The reviewer said there was 'no more effective musical OCR/editor on the market', but that PhotoScore 6 Ultimate gave superior results with handwritten music.
