Recommended songs for the Audio to Score feature

The Audio to Score feature of the Smart Pianist app does a great job analyzing tens of thousands of songs. However some songs, especially those that are more harmonically complex or less harmonically defined, are not as well suited for the Audio to Score analysis. We have analyzed a number of popular song titles to give you an idea of what type of music tends to get the best results so that you can get the best experience with this innovative feature. If you like these songs or artists, then it’s likely that other songs like these, by these or similar artists, will also achieve good results with Audio to Score.
