Is there a program that....?

Post by Danb1215 » Tue Oct 24, 2006 3:16 am

Is there a program that I can play notes on a midi controller and have it appear on a grand staff, like in sheet music format? i think this would be an efficient method of song writing especially since i often forget some synth riffs that I come up with spur of the moment. So if anyone knows of anyhting like this please let me know. Thanks.

Logic can, as well as sibellius (sp?).

If you like piano roll, FL studio since version 3 I think, it started to include it.

But version 4 or 5 I think, added impresive tools to do whatever you like to your recorded melody/sequence: articulate, legato, arpegiate, quantize, strum, flip, flam, limit, scale levels, and that's only the tools submenu, then you got transpose, chords, and even scale detection, in between others submenus...

Cubase can do that too. But i'm not sure which versions. Cubasis VST could do it too.

digital performer does notation pretty well.

for something like $15 you can get melody assistant, which is a pretty good midi sequencer that does everything with notation. you can also kinda record with it (one or two tracks at a time.)

If its scoring your after then I think the standards are either Finale or Sibelius like Stab Frenzy said....

Although Digital Performer, Logic and Cubase do it is not their main focus whereas it is for the for FInale and Sibelius.

Finale have a free introduction program called Finale Notepad http://www.codamusic.com/notepad/features/default.aspx Haven't used it but it might give you a taste...
