Transcribe! is a software program that lets you work out a piece of music from a recording. Traditionally, you would have to listen to a cassette over and over, in order to figure out the notes and play them on a guitar or piano.
The interface of the application is quite intuitive, but that does not necessarily mean that everybody is going to be able to handle it, as a basic understanding of music is needed. In the middle of the main screen, you are going to see the oscillator pertaining to the song you have opened, while on the lower part of the main window, a piano keyboard is presented and controls such as volume level, play, pause and stop.
The program enables you to increase or decrease all the sounds in the song by two octaves. Moreover, the speed at which the song is played can be easily changed from 20% to 100%.
If you want to add voice to the song you have uploaded to Transcribe!, you should know that recording yourself is possible, if you happen to have a microphone.
When it comes to importing songs, there are a number of formats that are supported, such as WAV, AIFF, MP3, OGG, MP2, WMV, AVI and XSC, but exporting is only done in WAV or XSC (transcription files).
All in all, Trasnscribe! is a very helpful application that enables people to adapt a certain song written for an instrument to be played on another.
