How to easily make Sheet Music (without perfect pitch)
« on: June 15, 2018, 06:19:08 PM »

1. Download and install MuseScore
 MuseScore https://musescore.org/
 Handbook https://musescore.org/en/handbook

2. Download game midi (For example, VGMusic)
 VGMusic https://www.vgmusic.com/

3. MuseScore opens midi (see "Key Signature" and "Tempo") and make new "Grand Staff" score
 Recommended "Max. voices" =1

4. Copy the channel you want from midi score and paste it on the new score.
 Selection modes https://musescore.org/en/handbook/selection-modes
 To extend the selection to the beginning of the score: Press Shift+Ctrl+Home (Mac:Shift+Cmd+Fn+←).
 To correct the octave Use Ctrl+↓ or Ctrl+↑ (Mac: Cmd+↓ or Cmd+↑).

 Voices https://musescore.org/en/handbook/voices
 How to merge/combine/implode two staves in one with two voices. https://musescore.org/en/node/12345

5. Adjust it and Export PDF/MusicXML Files!
 Hint: Considering the size of the hand.
         Do not pack too much sound.

Wow, thanks for the tutorial, karma7! (and welcome to NSM!) The way we make sheets here is a bit different though, and involves creating them entirely from scratch (alleviating the need to search for a midi file).

the problem is that you're 10 years too late: the vast majority of games since the wii don't even use MIDIs anymore. Also, midi copy-pasting rarely looks good, and you don't need to have perfect pitch to transcribe.

Don't trust MIDIs. Some of them are horrifically unreliable. Some of them just get a few harmonies wrong.

Plus MIDIs don't account for playability at all.

Also using a MIDI from somewhere else and making sheet music based off it isn't exactly nice, and doesn't help develop musical abilities at all, hence why NSM prefers to have the arrangers also be the transcribers.
