Does anyone know of a program that can take an audio sample of piano and turn it into sheet music? I don't know if this will help, but here's the peice I'm interested in turning into sheet music: Dave Matthews Band's #41 mp3. This is for myself only, and I don't plan on sharing this. I understand this is the artist's work, and he should own the rights to it.

Applications :: Editing Software For Creating Music Sets

Oct 27, 2009

I need a music editing software for creating music sets for my bellydancing sets. I need to be able to cut pieces of songs to create intros and exits. I want to be able to fade the beginning and end of songs. I also want to be able to add a recorded introduction to the beginning of a song. I've tried audacity, but it required another software to put it in the right format for burning to a cd. too many steps. I want a software that can read the songs from itunes and create the set in a format that can be easily burned to a cd.

Applications :: Music Editing Software For Mac - Itunes Songs

Feb 21, 2010

I have a good number of songs (and will continue to have) that I love, but they have just 1 or 2 swear words. That just ruins the whole song for me. I would really like to know (as well as friends who have asked me) where or IF I can get a music editing application for my mac so that I can edit iTunes songs. I just simply want to make it so that there is the classic *beep* sound instead of the swear word, or even just mute the vocal while the sole beat of the music is still going on (like how the radio stations do it).

Hardware :: Recording Music On MacBook Pro

Nov 26, 2008

I'm buying a MacBook Pro this week, and I can't decide whether to get the 2.53 ghz model or the 2.8 ghz model. I don't play games, but I will be recording a lot of music. I'll be using some sort of audio recording program, producing songs with as many as 20 tracks each with lots of effects like reverb, compression, etc. I also want this to be the only computer I use (for internet, photos, word processing, maybe some video) for at least the next six years. So what do you think? Is it worth the extra dough to upgrade to the 2.8 ghz model, or is the 2.53 ghz model a better value?

IMac :: Which Model Suits For Recording (Music) Purpose

Mar 4, 2009

I've been looking at buying a Mac for some time now and recently decided the iMac was the way to go. Now I'm not sure whether the new model suits my needs better than the old, so I was wondering if somebody could give me some advice on this.

What I'm going to do with it:
- record audio with an external audio interface
- use Cubase or Logic
- use an external full-hd monitor (dvi and hdmi inputs)
- use an external FW800 harddisk
- playing or editing hd-video (editing is not important, but it would be nice)

Does DDR3 and higher memory bandwidth give me any advantage? I think recording audio isn't that hard on the memory, besides using samples (which I won't besides some drum-sampling instrument like ezdrummer or addictive drums). Does the shared video memory affect overall performance? Or is it just like having less RAM? I know the old model has an FW400 and a FW800 port, but are they on the same bus? I heard someone say something like that, which would mean that my external harddisk would run on 400 when I connect a FW400 interface to the 400 port. I tried my best to read as much as I could about Macs and specs over the past few months, but I feel like I know too little about above mentioned issues to decide on the new versus the old iMac.

Software :: Editing Music Files?

Aug 6, 2008

This might be silly but i really dont know how to do it.

Its simple,

You know in Windows, if you want to rename a music file, you can simply right click on it, then you go to properties.

Then you can go to Summery, then after clicking on Advanced you can edit every information about that music file, such as artist, album, gender, year and so on.

in the mac, i tried clicking command+I to open the info for that track, but i couldnt change any of the information just like the windows.

Please note that even if you edit these information with iTunes, its still not change the original file.

Choose A Macbook Pro For Music Editing

Feb 20, 2012

so ive just started TAFE/college doing sound production and i can't decide if i should get the high end 13" 2.7GHz i7 MBP or the low end 15" 2.0GHz i7. both refurbished. or if i need one at all? my current pc is abit old and i would like a new computer to run either logic or cubase depending what i end up with (pc/mac) so i can do music edits and mixing (maybe with visuals) for TAFE and possibly for my future career, i also plan to do home recordings when i can get the equipment. Nothing too fancy just basic home recordings. I can afford the 15" but wuld i be better off getting ther 13" and saving the money to buy the recording equipment i.e interface, cond mic.

MacBook Air :: Production - Handle Heavy Music Editing With Logic Pro - Lack Of External Port?

Mar 23, 2008

I do not own any Mac at home, but looking into one for college. I have read up on all the pros/ cons of the MBA (non-removable battery and RAM, lack of ports and optical drive, etc). I am not a computer gamer, so I stick to the consoles. I was wondering if a MBA is ideal for any kind of music production. Can it handle heavy music editing with GB or Logic Pro? Is it ideal with the somewhat "lack" of external ports? share your opinions and/ or experiences with music production for fun or work on a MBA. (By the way, I am asking this to decide whether I should be looking into a MBA or MBP for college September of 2009, so I have LOTS of time to wait for newer models).

Applications :: Transposing While Recording?

Feb 6, 2005

I am learning a new song on the piano and it is played, at the lowest, 3 octaves down from middle C. The problem is my keyboard only has 64 keys and only reaches to the second octave down.

I am using a MIDI connection and I want to be able to have GarageBand transpose the keyboard while I am playing. So, say I play the song up on middle C but it would sound like it was down 3 octaves.

I can't find a way to do this while recording. You can transpose after you record, that is not a problem, but it would nice to hear it the right way while I play it. Any suggestions?

I have searched all through GarageBand can't find a way. Might be another suggestion I send to apple as feedback soon.

Applications :: GarageBand 08 Recording?

May 31, 2010

I have a couple questions regarding GarageBand 08 and recording with it.

1) Is it possible to connect a vocal mic to GarageBand, put an effect on that, and have a live output of the signal coming from the mic with the effect on it without having to record the audio first?

2) I have a Yamaha keyboard that has a MIDI and 1/4" jack output on. I am interested in connecting the keyboard to my Mac for use in recording. Would it be possible to run the audio signal from the 1/4" jack to the 1/8" jack on my Mac and record the audio in GarageBand and be able to apply effects to that track (i.e. synthesizers)?

Applications :: Why Safari Not Recording History

Mar 9, 2009

I'm using Safari 3.2.2 and it will not record any history. I have tried to fix it every possible way I could think off:
1. Checking if Private Browsing is on. [It wasn't]
2. Resetting Safari. [Still won't record]
3. Uninstalling and Reinstalling [No effect]
Is it possibly because of a missing file?

Applications :: GarageBand 08 Line In Stereo Recording?

Jul 13, 2008

I've been trying to record my guitar using a regular 1/4" instrument cable and a 1/4" to 1/8" adaptor into the line-in of my Blackbook. I go to System Preferences so the app uses the line-in and not the build-in mic. Under "details", it is set to record in stereo. It records fine and sounds good, but when I put on my headphones, the tracks I recorded only come out of one ear. The software tracks are fine (as are the tracks I've recorded via the built-in mic and a USB mic). Well, this really puts a hamper on the song. Is it just because regular Macbooks don't come with a very good sound card?

Applications :: 360 Video Recording - Error On Playback

Feb 5, 2010

So I bought a Sony Bloggie camera, and sprang for the extra $20 for the 360 video recording attachment. So sony touts on their website how great this camera and their software plays with Mac and PC, the truth is only the mobile dumbed down version of their software works on a Mac. The full version is PC only. unfortunately the full version is needed in order to convert and watch videos shot with the 360 attachment.

Fine no problem thats why man invented VMWARE. So I install the software on my windows XP virtual machine with XP sp3. The software converts the video but whenever I try to watch it the thing crashes and I get that report error to microsoft message. So my question is, are there any alternatives I can use preferably on Mac which will play the 360 video? I know a lot of websites have 360 virtual tour videos embedded.

Applications :: Looking For A Re-recording Program Like (Tunebite For Windows)?

Jul 14, 2010

So I just recently converted to all Mac. With that being said, I purchased a couple seasons of Mad Men via iTunes.

Now with music, I know you can burn the album to a cd and then import from cd to have a non-drm album. Not knowing, I've come to realize that you can't do this with videos.

I've read that you can backup your iTunes library on DVD, but I really don't want to do this all the time. I have my iTunes library on my ext hdd with a TM partition, but I don't want to rely on it (also my media is going to eventually outgrow that TM partition).

So, with that being said, I'm looking for a program that will re-record (or as others put it DRM stripping) the original untouched purchased video and give me a DRM free copy for backup.

Or, if there are any programs out there or methods of completely backing up iTune's purchased video, then I'm open ears.

The buzzing continues. It's as if the equalizer settings are set to max.
