Re: "Mini Guide": Tips for getting great sheets from "found" MIDI files

Hi David,

Re: Transcribing solo paino recordings

Hi,






Yes, but it seems (from posts to other forums that I've read) to have the same shortcomings as most "audio to sheet music" software - the task is just too complex for anything more...

Re: Something wrong here in spacing?

Hi Ian,

Hi Ralph,



Are you referring to the Text/Symbols -> Select Symbol grid? (and I think you meant "no dotted half note")
