I’m using Ardour for transcribing piano music played by artists to sheetmusic. It is recorded as a midi file.
After I set all Midi notes on time by using the Quantize… option, my next task is to give the notes the right length. It is obvious that the pianist doesn’t hold the notes exactly for 1/4, 1/8, 1/16 … sometimes the notes are overlapping, too.
Until now I transform every note to a “standard”-length an then stretch every note manually. This is a lot of work and I’m hoping to find a faster method.
I tried the “legalize” and the “remove overlap” option in the right click menu. It works fine until there are two notes exactly starting at the same time. Then it deletes one note.
Is there a better solution for transcribing music? Maybe using the transform menu?
