Only yesterday I posted about Hal Leonard’s new Scorch-powered Sheet Music Direct app, but Avid’s own iPad app, Avid Scorch, has also recently seen a major update to version 1.1, which is a free update for existing users, or just $1.99 US (or equivalent in your local App Store) for new users, for a limited time only.
Perhaps the biggest improvement in Avid Scorch 1.1 is the ability to preview any title from the in-app Scorch Store. Now you can make absolutely sure that the arrangement you’re thinking of buying is the one you need before you make your purchase.
You can also now load any PDF document in Avid Scorch directly: simply drag it into iTunes like you would a regular Sibelius score, and next time you sync your device, the PDF will be added to your Scorch library.
There’s also improved support for Bluetooth foot pedals for page turning, improved score following during playback, more intelligent page advancing when in Music Stand mode, and much more besides.
