Convert Audio to Sheet Music with AI – Transcribing Music made easy

Table of Contents

Transcribing pieces of music by ear is a time-consuming and frustrating task. Especially with more complex pieces, you have to listen to passages for hours to find out which notes are being played. But this tedious work has now come to an end! Thanks to the power of Klangio‘s artificial intelligence, you can now convert audio from music recordings into sheet music within seconds and zero effort! I’ll show you how to do this in this step-by-step tutorial.

Read on, or simply watch the YouTube tutorial:

Step 1: Find a music recording

First, of course, you need a recording that you want to transcribe. Recordings of individual instruments, such as a piano, guitar or vocals, work best. Arrangements with many instruments at the same time are more difficult to transcribe. Tools such as Melody Scanner can also convert complex pieces into piano arrangements.

The file formats hardly play a role. MP3, WAV or even links to YouTube videos – no problem as long as it is a clear recording.

Step 2: Starting the automatic transcription

The Piano2Notes Drag and Drop Window to upload your Files
In this window you can simply upload your audio file or copy a YouTube link.

As soon as you have selected your recording, you can start with the transcription. There is a separate application for each instrument:

Behind each software is an AI that is specially trained to analyze its respective instrument.

The steps are simple:

  1. Click on one of the links listed above.
  2. Upload your music file with drag & drop or paste in a YouTube link
  3. Enter a title and composer for the transcription
  4. Optional: Add further information about the piece.
  5. Click on “Transcribe”

The AI now creates a sheet of music within seconds. Impressive, isn’t it?

Step 3: Play and download demo transcription

Step 4: Full transcriptions and more features
