ChrdPro integration: deCoda #informational


ChordPro Team
 
Edited

deCoda is a tool that quickly analyses an audio file, e.g. a song, and determines the parts, tempo, time signature and chords. It is developed by
ZPlane, a small German company that specializes in audio-technology tools.

Version 1.1 of deCoda has been released recently, and one of the new features is ChordPro integration. Straight from deCoda you can install ChordPro, if required [Windows only] and deCoda can produce nice chord charts using ChordPro. Really impressive!

Very interesting. Thanks for the hint.

I have been using Transcribe for years https://www.seventhstring.com/xscribe/overview.html
A very helpful tool and not too difficult to use, but I have to do many things manually / by ear that deCoda claims to do automatically.

While browsing the web for more details I came across Sonic Visualizer https://www.sonicvisualiser.org/
It's open source probably targeting to academic music research. With plugins from here https://www.vamp-plugins.org/download.html it might be able to do similar things as deCoda.

On Transcribe's home page is a list of tools that might be helpful for transcribing: https://www.seventhstring.com/resources/transcription.html
Alas it is completely unspecified what each of these tools does, many are just speed changers / pitch shifters but Sonic Visualizer is also mentioned here
