I am a final year student doing software engineering..
I need help on my final year project. I am interested in music. i have an idea but i am not sure it can be finished in 7 months time or not. my plan is a sheet music reader. A system that is capble to scan a sheet of music and analyse it. XML file should be generated that captures as much as possible of the music information on the music sheet. Then generating MIDI output from the Music XML file. I really do not know how to do go about ..how do convert the image of the scanned document into a xml? And how do i convert it into midi? What are the areas of study i need to consider? Please give me advice on this project.
I thank all of you in advance!!
