Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

A Californian federal judge ruled this week that Happy Birthday to You does not belong into the corporation that has long claimed it. The ruling brings to en end an intense two-year legal standoff between a handful of independent filmmakers and massive company Warner Music. It also throws into doubt as much as $ 50 million in licensing fees collected by the music giant over the past 27 years, raising the possibility of a class-action lawsuit to come.

"Happy Birthday is finally free after 80 years," Randall Newman, an attorney for the plaintiffs, told the Los Angeles Times. "Finally, the charade is over. It’s unbelievable." - THE WASHINGTON POST, reprinted in The Miami Herald, Thursday, 24 September 2015, p. 11A

The purpose of this arrangement was to show how the rhythm of the song fit to Beethoven’s melodies of the Second Movement Andante con moto of his Fifth Symphony, op. 67 of 1801, that appear from measure 22-38 and 147-150, and how it could be easily sung to these tunes.
