Lets you correct errors that
MidiNotate might make in transcribing the MIDI to
NOTE: MidiNotate is not a MIDI
sequencer or notation editor.
Although MidiNotate does an
amazingly accurate job in transcribing MIDI files
to notation, it will infrequently make mistakes that
can be detected and corrected only with the judgment
of a musician. Therefore, MidiNotate offers easy-to-use
tools for correcting notation errors. Please note,
however, that MidiNotate's editing features are largely
limited to correcting the notation. MidiNotate does
not support editing of the underlying MIDI notes and
events, nor the adding of new notes or tracks.
MidiNotate lets you make the
following changes to the score:
Insert key signature and clef
Change enharmonic spellings (accidentals) of notes,
such as from C# to Db.
Shift the as-notated locations (attacks) of notes.
Change the as-notated duration of notes.
Move selected notes from one staff to another.
Change the beaming of notes.
Add or remove ties between notes, and change the arc
direction (up or down) of ties.
Delete notes that were not intended in the original
MIDI performance and the score.
Replace written-out repeats in MIDI files with repeat
signs and endings ("1", "2", etc.)
that MidiNotate follows during playback.
Split measures with a new barline, such as might be
needed for a repeat that starts at an upbeat.
Edit the barline style: single, double, dotted, start-repeat,
Permanently delete tracks.
Transpose between concert pitch and instrument's natural
Transpose absolute (as-heard) pitch.
Reassign tracks to different MIDI channels and patches
Add, remove and change lyrics, including multiple
verses displayed in multiple lines of text.
Add, remove and change chord names after MidiNotate
has automatically analyzed and displayed the chords.
Add brackets and braces to staves, such as for the
right- and left-hand staves of a piano part.
Undo any number of previous editing operations.
