Topic: Can This be Done? Audio to Score?

    Re: Can This be Done? Audio to Score?

    Hi everyone,

    There is a programme from neuraton called Audioscore. I have the lite version which I really haven't used as it's only monophonic and doesn't record from a keyboard. I'm more of a pencil and paper at the piano type and then into Sibelius for my scores.

    According to the website, the ultimate version of audioscore can transcribe from a keyboard and produce a notated score. It's fairly pricey but there is a trial you can download to see if it's what you are looking for.

    Here is the link. All the best.

    Every five minutes a new scammy program with a tacky website pops up claiming to convert audio to MIDI. Even if this could be done effectively (which it cannot), you'd spend twice the time cleaning up the score than you would by simply rewriting it.

    Part of our box of tools is transcription from aural sources. qccowboy is correct - use you ears and write it down. Much more efficient than a machine and it is a skill that should be part of your toolbox. If it isn't then your skill set is far from complete. Learn your craft and execute it. HOWEVER if someday a program comes along that can do aural transcription - I'll be one of the first to use it. Best of luck.
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    The link for audioscore is reputable and not scammy or tacky otherwise I wouldn't have posted it. The lite version I have came with Sibelius and will generate a score but it still needs to edited and tidied up. The ultimate version does much more than my lite one. Once the score is generated you can edit it or send it to Sibelius so you can edit and work on a performers score.It may or may not be what Composingatnight needs. Only a demo will tell, thus the link.

    Personally I don't think any programme can take an audio track and give you a professionally engraved score ready for performers to use as no musician plays with the accuracy of computer timing (thank goodness). The scores all need to be edited to be readable. I usually write my music at the piano and then use Sib for the engraving to get it into a professional looking score that can be published.

    You could play the music into a DAW that records MIDI as well as audio, that way you would have the recording of what you played but the notation generated would still need to be edited in a dedicated notation programme like Finale or Sibelius.

    All the best.
