How I Transcribe and other things…

I wanna show you with this post the instruments that help me to transcribe drum parts (groove or solo).

Let me show you my fundamental steps:

1)  I import the audio file on my DAW, Cubase in my case.

2) So I listen the audio and use some EQ plugins (there are so many choices, personally I use FabFilterPro-Q2) to cut the sub-low and the very high frequencies, “boosting” for example the low freq. to spot the kick.

3) Slow down the audio (not much more, just to avoid to get worse the audio clarity) and loop the first section, usually the first four bars of the song/solo.

4) After listening several times, I write the part on the staff of my notation software, Finale.

5) I repeat this procedure until the end, then I listen for entire the song following the transcription and making some adjustments if necessary.

6) I complete the work writing the information concerning the song/drum parts: title, album, drummer, notation key, etc.

7) Now the transcription is ready to be shared!
