Re: scoring and notation software



Hi Bob,

The plugin and application Melodyne does convert an audio file of
multi part music into MIDI. If you run the Melodyne plugin inside a
DAW with score printing you can tidy it up and press Print (Logic,
Cubase, Pro Tools, DP...).

The soon to ship Ableton Live version 9 will also be able to analyze
multi part audio and make a MIDI file of it. But Live doesn't have a
score edit.

If the audio file is monophonic (not recorded multi part music) I
think most DAWs can convert it to MIDI. For Logic, that I prefer, this
has been possible for... well many years, don't remember when this
function first came. I often use it to make string or synth parts: I
grab my Stratocaster, plug it in, play the line and convert the audio
to MIDI before patching up a synth or nice sampler patch to it.
