Are you scanning your music sheets to a program such as Adobe and creating PDFs first and then printing them? My HP scanner has a copy machine function that just scans right to the laser printer and most things are excellent quality. I would think sheet music would not do well set to grey scale interpolation anyway. Maybe I am not reading you well here but I would just run it as a photocopy if you have that capability.
I have 2 printers-- a new HP 6122 color and an old Hp IIIP.
I have some sheet music i need to scan and print. usually I have good luck printing out pdf's on my old laserprinter, they are really sharp and clear, but whenever I scan sheet music and try to print it on the old laser I have problems. looks fuzzy and blurry and very low-res, even tho the scan was 300 dpi. it's not the printer or the file, the printer is okay otherwise.
looks pretty good on the deskjet 6122, but that has the usual inkjet fuzziness on regular papoer that the laser printer usually does not have. that's why I want to use the laser. the old laser looks great when printing from finale.
I am setting the pdf scan at 256 shades of grey, 100% contrast, 300 dpi.
any hints on doing this? it's all b&w, fyi - fj
