Find score for a piano song

Hey guys, I saw that there is a recording button that finds notes when you play them slowly, one at a time.

I slowed down a piano song I had from Youtube (with Audacity) so that each note gets played at a time, but the notes that the recording tool found were completely wrong.
Is there any way I could find at least the core notes of a song like, say, this one: ?

Thanks! :)

    Hi!

    The audio recognition of ScoreCloud currently only handles monophonic audio, meaning one note at a time. Even though parts of this song is indeed played one note at a time, the sustain of the piano makes the notes overlap so much that the analysis cannot handle it.

    If this was played on a MIDI keyboard, ScoreCloud Studio could have helped you notate this, but using this kind of audio is currently not supported.

    Hope this helps!

    Do you recommend anything for helping me find the core notes? I have quite a good ear, but my piano is very old and even though I just tuned it, it is off at some places :)

    Yes! My general tip is to search for MIDI files online to import into ScoreCloud.

    I found these two versions of the "Title" song, that seems to be the same song as in the Video you posted.

    Opening the MIDI file in ScoreCloud Studio will get you right into the MIDI import, that should give you a good start!

    Hope this helps!
