We would like transcriptions from audio (i.e. WAV files) featuring a variety of solo instruments (including drums) to a “piano roll” representation (MIDI files). This is different from transcription to sheet music because (at least initially) we don’t require high-level semantic information like key signatures, measure boundaries, etc. However, we do require precise timing information for each note, within ~100 milliseconds.
We will provide a single-instrument WAV file and a MIDI file with our current best automated transcription for each track to be transcribed. The completed work product should be a new MIDI file with all transcription errors corrected.
Errors in the provided MIDI file could range from only a few extra notes that need to be deleted to entire sections of the music being missing.
The project will last for a period of 4 months give or take.
Freelancer should be comfortable with doing piano roll transcription for both pitched and percussive instruments.
Needs to have both general music training and experience using MIDI editing software.
Oral Listening and transcribing skills are a must.
Previous experience with music transcription will be a plus point.
