Sheet Music Export Guide

Because interpretations of MusicXML can vary we have included a guide for how to export your sheet music from Frettable to several popular editors. If you don't see your editor of choice here please contact us and we will try our best to include it.

Export Basics

In order to download sheet music you must be a Frettable Studio subscriber. To download the sheet music, click on the download button on the instrument transcription page. This will load the MusicXML file in your browser. Right click anywhere on that page and choose save as. You can then use this file in the score editing program of your choice.

MIDI

If the MusicXML fails to import properly many editors allow you to import a MIDI file instead. Importing a MIDI file should work across nearly every editor, however the resulting sheet music may be different for each editor. We recommend following the MusicXML export guides for best results.
