Run time and cost

This model runs on Nvidia T4 GPU hardware.


This model accompanies the paper “Reconstructing the Charlie Parker Omnibook using an audio-to-score automatic transcription pipeline” (currently under review).

The model takes either

  • an audio file


  • a YouTube url

You can optionally specify a start time and finish time for use with YouTube videos.

The model extracts the saxophone audio, transcribes it to MIDI and then converts the MIDI to sheet music. It returns a MusicXML file which you can import into any sheet music program. It also returns a json file containing syncpoints for use with Soundslice.
