YouTube to Sheet Music

Scenario: There is this one piano cover on YouTube I would love to play, but I don’t have the sheet music.

How to get sheet music from a YouTube video

  1. Press the Plus-button on the right bottom corner

  2. Choose the YouTube-button.
    If there is no YouTube button, please disable your Ad Blocker and reload the page!
    (Some Ad Blockers falsely think the YouTube button is an ad)

  3. A dialog opens with a search bar.
    1) First select the instrument you are looking for
    2) Enter the name of your desired song or paste the YouTube video link

  4. Hit the search button and select the desired video in the list
  5. The cropping dialog opens. Here, you can listen to the video and select a start and a stop time of the music you want to transcribe.

  6. After hitting the “GENERATE SHEET” button, the song transcription will start.
  7. The dialog closes automatically, and your song will appear in your songbook with a sand clock icon.
    This means it is in the queue, but the processing has not started yet.
  8. When it is your turn, it will be indicated by a rotating circles icon. The transcription itself will now take up to 3 minutes (depending on the video duration)
  9. When the transcription is finished, the song’s icon will change to a YouTube icon.
    Now you can open it by clicking on the title.

An error happened during the transcription

Erroneous songs are indicated by a red triangle with an exclamation mark in it.


  • Is the original video too long? (Should be shorter than 40 minutes)
  • Is there music in the video?
  • Is the audio long enough?
    (The algorithm is trying to fit a measure system into the song, therefore at least 4 bars of music should be contained)
  • The YouTube video might not be available in our country, please try a different one.
