This is a question mainly for those who write music in a DAW. If you are needing to turn your composition into sheet music what is your process? I’ll sometimes scratch out a part on paper before I record it in if it’s a fast run or a complex chord progression. But once it’s on a track I’m focused on how it sounds because an audio file is usually my end goal. So I’ll layer different articulations together in ways that aren’t really “realistic” but I do it because it makes it sound realistic. Or I might need to offset midi events to sound like they’re on the beat because they have a slow attack.
My point is, there’s a lot of stuff that I do in the DAW that would make a mess if I just exported the midi from the DAW to a notation program. And that’s not even getting into percussion. So, those of you who print your sheet music, do you export it and fix it in the notation editor? Do you make a separate prep project in your DAW to clean it up for exporting? Rewrite it in the notation software? Hire someone else to do it?
