My first “speed transcribing” (Steins;gate ED transcription)

Some of you may ask yourself by now: “Wait, what? Speedtranscribing?”

That’s right, just the same with speedsubs, but with notes.

It all began when I came back from my trip to Berlin on Wednesday.

I have missed the last flight to Stuttgart because I came too late for the check in (there were still 30 minutes left but the counter said, it was already too late…) and then I was stuck in the Airport for roughly 5 hours before the next plane to Stuttgart take off. In the little of the night.

Luckily, I had brought my laptop and my headphones and there was also a cafe which had a WLAN hotspot!

I convenientely have the notation software already installed on my laptop, so I thought in the next few hours I could actually transcribe something. It spring to my mind, that I should just visit and ask on the forum for something to transcribe. (see here for my post)

Unfortunately, nobody answered and I just decided to transcribe the Steins;Gate ED (it also requested in a another thread)

HNNNGGGHH… Kurisutina is  awesome

I could finish it only after four hours because it’s really hard to transcribe if you don’t have a piano for reference. I only used my imagination how it would sound on the piano.

I wasn’t really sure if it would turn out well, since I practically blindly transcribed something without testing it out on the piano before like i usually do. (of course there were a playback function, but you can’t compare the sound of a midi with the sound of a real piano. Things which sounds “cool” on midi could sound ugly on the piano and vice versa)

Finally back at home, the first thing I had in mind was sleep and after sleeping for nearly 12 hours, I went to the piano and tried out my Speedtranscription. I was a bit surprised because it turned out better than I expected. Not really ground-breaking but still playable.

I only edited some minor details before I video tape. Maybe you notice the small changes between this version here and the version I posted on Ichigos.

I asked myself why I didn’t transcribed this earlier, since Steins;Gate is currently one of my favorite series and the ED is….

… someone give this man a medal.
