I have converted more than 150 files to MidiNotate as a Fake book versions. My biggest problem is that in the original, almost every song contains chords with a different note (other than root) in the bass. Like an Ab Chord over C, or Ab/C. MidiNotate doesn't recognize them. I know it's getting down to the finite details of chord recognition, but is it forseeable in the future, or is it possible now? Cause I spend a great number of hours correcting chords that should be writtren as such.

MidiNotate's chord name transcription indeed does not analyze and show the base note, as in Ab/C. It should. I have noted this as a fairly high priority for the next release of MidiNotate.

I am new to music so I need some help and advice. I have sheet music without chords, I would like to know the basic chords for these songs. Is there software available that will allow me to type the notes in and have the chords created.

Yes, MidiNotate Composer (and I believe Musician, also) will transcribe chords from the music file that you either transcribe from a mid file or create yourself (Composer only for composing).
To do this, with your file open in Musician or Composer,
1. Click on Track/Transcribe chord names
2. Work through the dialog box, checking which tracks you want to use, what chord types, and what beat placement you want in transcribing the chords.
3. Click ok.
If you don't currently have Composer or Musician, you can give them a try by downloading the free trial versions. Check out the MidiNotate homepage at www.notationsoftware.com
If you're a MidiNotate 4 customer, there is a discount for upgrading to Musician or Composer, depending on when you made your initial purchase.
I hope this helps!

Has this feature been implemented? I am using a trial version of Composer but have not figured out a way to have chords names shown with the different base note as above.
p.s. newbie here - this is my first post!

Welcome to the forum!
I recommend that you add posts under the MidiNotate Musician/Composer 1.0 section of the forum rather than this MidiNotate 4.0 section, as MidiNotate 4.0 is a retired (but still supported) product.
MidiNotate Musician and Composer still do not add the bass note in transcription of chord names. And that feature will not be included in the version 1.1 release due next month. Sorry.
In the mean time, you can manually add the bass note. For example, after MidiNotate transcribes the chord name as Ab, you can manually change the Ab chord name to Ab/C.
