    Hi! I made a cover of Skyward Sword's Ballad of the Goddess, on the piano! Feedback is appreciated, and I have a request.



    Now, what I am looking for is a way to convert my MP3 works into a music sheet file. I also have a WAV file. Is there a way I can do that on a Mac with OS X Lion? Better yet, if someone could transcribe it for me I'll be sure to acknowledge them in the description! :)

    Love it! It's zelda but with a new, slightly more upbeat twist!

    Also, I don't think you can turn it into a music sheet very easily. Although, I've seen a peice of software called Hit 'n' Mix which looks very good, never tried it personally though.

    About that name...

    yeah man, trust me i didn't want to post here either. XD I'm doing it for the benefit of the music community because ever since I put that video up on YT, I've gotten quite a bit of fan mail asking for a transcription. :P I'm sure there's someone out here who wants a transcription of it. But after this, I'll go back to wherever I've been.

    Some feedback:
    Try to project the melody out more, your left hand is blurring it out on the bigger sections. On the chords, you seem to be using a ton of wrist to play louder, but you'll need more arm weight as well to go along with it. Try combining a balance of arm and wrist into the chords more to get both better tone and dynamic range.

    Could you please provide me with an original MP3 / wav file? I'm gonna give that music sheet a go.

    Here's a straight up audio rip of the music in the video. I can't do the MIDI conversion! I don't think its possible, but if you can transcribe it for me, you'll be my new best friend. :)

    PM me if you're successful. You'll be credited for sure. :)

    I had a try with that program I linked but no luck, seems as if it doesn't work as well as advertised. And unfortunately I do not know enough about music to be able to do anything else.
    Sorry :(
