Hello all ,
I am currently using cool edit pro2 for transcribing and generally just slow the file down by put it to 45 to 60% ,
does anyone else have any ideas I getting better results from transcribing with CEP2 ,
and how much better if they are , are the other programs on the market for transcribing ,

its far more intuitive to use than Cool Edit. it also starts up MUCH faster and it lacks all of the features that you do not need when merely figuring out licks from tunes... you will have a much easier time of figuring out how to use this program... so no worries... :-)

Cool Edit Pro 2 (Just rolls off the tounge that one) is a cracker of an app and most of the sound files on this site have been munched through it in some form or other. However if all you want to do is slow a tune down then grab a copy of transcribe as it's just a click away.

From Zoot: "However if all you want to do is slow a tune down then grab a copy of transcribe as it's just a click away."

I just started using transcribe, and this is about all I use it for, but was wondering if anyone uses the spectrum analysis with any regularity or success. Seems more trouble than it's worth, often. Or is it just me?

I don't want to sound too much like a techno nerd but spectrum analysis by DFFT (Discrete Fast Fourier Transform -oops failed already 8) ) is notoriously difficult to implement for this app. All sorts of artefacts are introduced by the sample length and window weighting to name just two of the better known effects. It just shows what an amazing job the human ear does with a few hairs and some ear-wax :shock: Transcribe does about as good a job as is possible with software and is actually very useful to determine exactly which inversion of a cleanly struck chord is being played,- I wouldn?t be without it. As for passing notes -forget it.
BTW plectrum analysis is trivially processed by Yahoo. :wink:
