Onyx Boox Max2 Sheet Music Review (Video)

Onyx Boox Max2 Sheet Music

The Onyx Boox Max2 is one of the most versatile E Ink devices ever released. It’s an ebook reader, a PDF reader, a digital notepad, it can work as a secondary monitor, it can be used as an audio player and recorder, it can install Android apps, among other things.

It can also be used to display scores and sheet music for musicians, both in practice and professional settings.

A new video was recently uploaded to YouTube with tips for musicians for using the Onyx Boox Max2 to display music files.

The large 13.3-inch screen is a good size to display sheet music, especially when cropping the margins.

One thing that makes the Max2 a better option than the Sony DPT-RP1 for sheet music is the fact that it supports wireless page turns, allowing you to setup a Bluetooth device to page forward and back.

The foot pedal shown in the video is called the PageFlip Firefly, but there are a number of options.

    We are wondering whether it is possible to combine two single pads to yield a double page pad and also where the product might be available.

  2. Can you suggest an app for *writing* music on the onyx Boox? I’ve tried several but none of them seems particularly handy for this. There is always some future making it awkward to correctly enter the musical notation.

  3. Hello.Im a very low-tech please forgive my silly question. If I make some notes in the score and then export the score to a computer etc, do the markings stay there?
