"VueScan has allowed me to take music to the world markets"

Hamrick Software's industry-leading product helps Larry Blank send his compositions all over the world.

Larry Blank is an internationally known Music Director, Composer, Arranger and Orchestrator.

He is currently represented on Broadway and in London's West End by his Tony nominated orchestrations for The Drowsy Chaperone, and is also responsible for the new orchestrations for Fiddler on the Roof, currently playing in the West End of London.

Larry has worked and is responsible for the orchestrations of some of the world's top performers, including the arrangement for Marc Shaiman's "Comedians at the Oscars" with Will Ferrell and Jack Black.

The need for scanning

Larry composes and then scans hand written music on 11x17 (A3) paper. In addition, he scans manuscripts and published music and ships it to many music copyists located in the USA and Europe. VueScan has allowed him to work on a global basis - which is vital to his international career.

Challenges faced

Larry uses a Macbook Pro with an Epson GT-15000. Neither the Macbook Pro or Epson have a driver for the scanner, although the UK site only supplied a driver for the old Mac - not for the Intel version.

"When I upgraded to the new Mac with the Intel chip the scanner software would not work at all - and my work came to a halt. I contacted Epson - who were unable to help me at all. However, after reporting the problem to Hamrick Software, they solved the problem and produced a driver for me."

"I can now scan and send work all over the world. Without the Epson scanner and VueScan my output would have been severely restricted. Rehearsal music is very time critical, and I am now confident that I can meet the deadlines imposed by productions."

Larry also appreciates the quality and accuracy of the preview. "With VueScan, the preview quality is so good that I only need to do one scan. The overall quality of VueScan enables me to be very productive with my own work load."
