transcribe software

Postby jstout » Fri Nov 07, 2008 9:23 am

I don't know if this is the best place for this or not, but I couldn't really think of a better one. If someone else can, lemme know and I'll repost there.

I'm interested in starting to use the Transcribe software to help develop my ear a bit and learn some of my favorite basslines. I'm trying to figure out the easiest way to use the software, though. Should I slow the speed down to half and bump everything up an octave so the line is slower but still in pitch?

Basically, if you use the program or another like it, how do you use it?

Better yet, slow it down and stay in pitch...

Transcribe will keep it in pitch for you.

In fact, you can change the pitch to whatever you want.

Awesome software and way more versatile than ASD.

You're right...

Transcribe! offers many features aimed at making the ||

|| transcription job smoother and easier, including the ability ||

|| to slow down the music without changing its pitch, and to ||

|| analyse chords and show you what notes are present. ||


Thanks, I'll check it out [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

So how do YOU get the most out of the program? What settings do you use?

My using it is completely hit-and-miss. Once a few years ago, I transcribed a fairly difficult Camper Van Beethoven line, but I feel like I "cheated" by having the chord progression for the song in front of me off the Internet.

Flash forward to a few years later (last Saturday), and I'm simply trying to pick out the chord progression for Warren Zevon's "Hula Hula Boys," (from "The Envoy" album) and I just can't seem to zero in on it. The "spectral analysis" bar didn't seem to be helping matters either. I heard it as C-G-A-G when the spectral analysis thing was possibly showing some Ds in there. I just couldn't get a handle on something as easy as the basic root movement and it was frustrating as all heck. Made me feel completely tone-deaf.

I did sorta manage to transcribe a passible version of the speedy impossible dammit-George-Porter-why-do-you-have-to-be-so-good tasty lick in Robert Palmer's "Sneaking Sally Through the Alley," but I've got it up to about half-speed, maybe. I think maybe the higher up the fretboard it is, the easier I can transcribe it.

I haven't used but a fraction of what it can do. I mainly use the looping, the slow-down, and the transpose functions.
