MIDI Files for Sheet Music Please Help!

• Jan 21, 2014 - 00:36

I was wondering if anyone could please tell me how to edit a midi file so that it gives you sheet music for one instrument such as what YouTubers do; they take the MIDI for a song and translate it into sheet music for (example) a saxophone. I haven't been able to find information on how to do this and if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!


There is no completely painkess way to do this; MIDI does not contain enough information to allow a readable score to be constructed automatically. So you have to read the MIDI file and then spend a rather long time fixing it up - or, as I think is easier, simply recopying by hand into a new score. Once ppyou have the score, getting a video is easy - just use the Save Online command in MuseScore to upload to musescore.com and it handles the rest.
