"For me the snag with being given a piece of paper(\pdf) with the dots is its lack of adaptability."

With the right hardware and software any sheet music can be made to play. It's years since I had, or had access to, a scanner but Sibelius can take a scan of a score and turn that into a Sibelius file, which you can then play, edit, save and export as midi.

It's years since I did it and I can't remember how well it worked. It's probably cheaper to learn to read the dots.
