Title: [MIDI] - You've Got To Learn To Live With What You Are
Post by: Andy on October 17, 2003, 03:03:42 PM
OK, I've crunched the song through Andy's Transcribe-o-Matic, and come up with this. The aim was to get it more accurate than my Wandering midi, and I think it came out ok. I quantised it as much as I could so that you can use it for sheet music, but the note lengths are still rather crazy. Hard to strike a balance between that and 'listenability'.

So yeah, post some feedback if you're so inclined. If anyone can convert it to sheet music then I'd love a copy!

Enjoy.

Gold Andy! just gold!

(gotta say I hate midi drum kits... heheh)

Just listened and I have to thankyou. I almost had it worked out myself but there were some minor things I was missing! Thanks, Andy! Much appreciated!

perfect.  You rule.  It sounds awesome.  I cracked it open in an midi arranger...  and you're right, the note lengths are crazy.  A lot with the pedal too.  It sounds perfect, though.  Just a little tough to read.  (But it's easy to figure out from your lead.)

THANK YOU!

wow, old thread. Anyways here's a direct conversion to .nwc. As usual, the rhythms aren't perfect, but still pretty close.

I am in debt to you for that. Awesome! I tried opening the file in Finale and it came out perfect. There were no strange rhythmic values or anything. I think it's really cool too that we get the parts without the voice so you can practice singing along.
