Is there software that can hear what you play and transcribe it to be printed out?
Recommendations appreciated.

I have tried several programs including Neuratron Audioscore, but none of them worked acceptably.

This is an extremely difficult computing problem. Check back in about ten years....

"Hear" what you play - via, say, a microphone - might be a problem. Music notation software - MuseScore - freeware, or Finale or Sibelius - ought to be able to transpose. Also would take MIDI input, I think, if you have a MIDI keyboard.

MuseScore does transpose and take MIDI input. The problem with the MIDI input is that you have to be able to play the music very precisely the way you want it notated, which means *not* playing the way it's supposed to sound. If you're just a touch late, instead of a whole note, you may get a thirty-second rest followed by a tied and dotted mess.

If you have a MIDI keyboard (and everybody should) then yes. I've done a bit of this. As John says notation programs will all take MIDI input, but I don't play fast enough or precisely enough to input music that way. I do it manually (mouse and arrow keys) when I write.

But there is freeware out there that can do what you want, I think. It's been a while, but I think I had success with Anvil Studio. It was reasonably intuitive (the DAWs are definitely not, at least for me) and it had adjustable quantize. You could set quantize to not be sensitive below a quarter note, for example, which eliminates that eighth note with 3 dots which is how you really played it. I had some idea that comparing a nonquantized performance with the actual notation would give a score of how precisely I was playing. Of course that didn't work out but I've never been short of dumb ideas.

Now if you don't have MIDI, and you want the program to hear actual audio? I have no idea how you'd do that.


gotta go practice

It's really tedious to clean up a MIDI-transcribed score, as others have mentioned. I think it's far better to improve one's skill of ear training and notation so you can create the score based on what you're playing.

If you're composing, this will *greatly* improve your compositional skills as well and make the process much faster as you work within a notation program. It takes some work at the beginning, but once you learn how to do this, it goes very quickly, and no need to try and make a big mess look neat. IMHO. smile

thank all of you. Actually my teacher was expressing interest in getting her playing transcribed for student use. She often rearranges/adapts pieces I'm interested in playing that are simpler (or too complex!) than appropriate for my level or just for interest. She's not into tech so I thought I'd see what was out there for her. Thanks again!
