MIDI to Sheet Music
Recently I've decided to finally "go legit" with my music, which involves removing/replacing uncleared samples and focusing on the administrative aspects of my productions, including copyrighting.
In regards to finished recordings of songs the copyright process is very simple, however MIDI files aren't considered a fixed and tangible medium.
I understand that copyrighting the sheet music separately could possibly be redundant since "a musical composition and a sound recording may be registered together on a single application if ownership of the copyrights in both is exactly the same" according to the US Copyright Office - this may be disputed, not always successfully, if someone contests and has documented the composition as sheet music and the owner of the copyrighted recording has not. I'm thinking long term here, building a library of personal recordings and their documented compositions, copyrighted and cataloged, to last beyond my lifetime.
Can anyone here please provide some suggestions, preferably based on experience, for converting the MIDI files in an NS2 project into sheet music?
Are any of you doing something similar with your music?
So far I've found some websites and free converter software which look like they could be promising, but I'd prefer some advice from anyone experienced with this matter before getting in too deep.
Thanks in advance.
