Noodle Notation recorder

A recording device that translates notes into musical notation

I'm not sure if this idea is necessary, but a jazz musician, or even someone who amid laughter sits down at the piano and starts to play would appreciate more than just a sonic recording of an impromptu session at the ivories or trashcan lids or bannister. (If this has been done I'd be obligated to see where's it baked at.) So a notation recorder would not only record the music, but also spit out the notes as notation to the trusty Mac or PC for further squidging. Mayb e I'm simply thinking of a standard digital tape recorder... The device would somehow combine a sample with notation software... It would sort-of replace the fancy Yamaha player piano that gives you mechanical playback & notation of your noodles.

Can't endorse this myself, but it's free so why not try it out? [wagster, Feb 25 2005]

       Is it any good at it?

       (After a long delay): Yes, excellent. You play, it records MIDI which it can convert to score.
Apparently (though I can't confirm this), Sibelius can do the opposite: you scan a printed score and it plays the notes.
