Guitar to midi to tablature

Would be nice to have music notation and tablature from your guitar!


We’ve been working on a complete auto-scoring solution for 3 years now… but at this time i cant disclose anything about it or promise anything.

We feel that using existing tools is not ideal… its possible to record a MIDI with a DAW, save it to a MIDI file and then import that into your notation software. Importing a full MIDI file will give better results than live streaming MIDI into notation. But its tedius and many tools for layouting and correcting notation/tabs are kind of non-existent or not up to modern standards. So, hopefully we can change this in the future.

Here’s an interesting test conducted by the one and only Surf.Whammy in PreSonus’ Notion forum using MG2 and Notion 6.

Hope you find it useful, or at least interesting.

Would it work simply using your software to convert the guitar to midi then use a 3rd party notation software like Sibelius??

generally: dont hope to do live recording, especially with Sibelius, which makes a terrbile mess on screen because out of the send extra midi data, and offers no options to filter them out.
Remember: MG doesnt scan which string is played: you get a piano score at best, not tabs.
If this limitation ok with you, then record the midi in a DAW, quantise and clean it up there, then export the clean midi to a scoring app.
