Delivery by April 9, 2013




I have a project where I need contractors to transcribe songs from videos (from youtube or other sources). The videos are either official music videos or tutorial videos. The songs need to be transcribed note for note and as accurate as possible.

Initially, I will require the lead guitar part for the song. Later on, I will require the other parts (rhythm guitar, drums, keys, bass, etc.) also.

The job entails that you deliver a MIDI file containing all the lead guitar notes from the song. The MIDI file should contain 6 tracks--one for each guitar string. The tracks should contain the MIDI notes played on that string. The MIDI file should match the video such that if I import both the video's audio track and the MIDI file into the same sequencer program, the MIDI notes should play in sync with the video.

If you believe you are able to help with this project, please respond to this job post with a description (as detailed as possible) of how you would go about transcribing each song. Please mention any programs or software that you would use. Please include all necessary steps of what you would do. Based on this response, I will determine my short-list of candidates. I will forward more detailed specifications (and sample MIDI files) to the short-listed candidates for additional evaluation.

This job posting is for the transcription of the first song. Based on the quality of the delivered MIDI file, I will then contract you to transcribe additional songs (most likely in batches of 10 songs at a time). I have approximately 200 songs I would like to transcribe.

If you have the required skill sets and believe you can be an asset to this project, please respond right away. I look forward to receiving your application.

Thank you.
