Audio Music Transcription

Another fantastic attribute of CJW Music Transcriptions is that I offer audio music transcription from the audio file to music notation using Finale from scratch. Either this, or I use garageband if someone sends me a MIDI file and there is a special plugin I use to extract the MIDI parts and join them together in a score for your ensemble to play. The pricing on this is anywhere from $40 to $60 per hour depending on the length and complexity of the audio recording in question.

Here is a short video and picture to show you a sample of how this is done.

This video by way of MIDI extraction turns into the picture below:

The process is actually done by downloading the GB2MIDI plugin that helps extract the MIDI from the Garageband files to readable music notation (from .aif to.mid files). If you want further information on how to do it, here is the article that explains this process in full detail.

I do midi and printed music transcriptions of the following:
