It’s also a fairly simple process. All you need to do is record a Software Instrument track and then, after a brief tidy-up in the Score menu, print out what you’ve played in notation form. Printing music is not just something that can benefit you – it’s also a great way for non-Mac- owning friends to be able to play your compositions.
1 Pick the key
First, create a Software Instrument track and choose your instrument. Now pick the key in which you will record the piece by clicking on the Key section of the Beats & Project view.
2 Record and notate
Record your composition and double-click on the region your composition has created. By default it’ll take you to the Piano Roll – tap the Score tab to view the notation.
3 Tidy up
Unless you’re a human metronome, your recording’s notation will look untidy. Select all the notes and click a suitable value on the Time Quantize menu. You can also reposition notes.
4 Print your piece
When you’re happy with how it looks, press Cmd+P and choose your Page Setup. After clicking OK, press Print. The name you save your piece as will be the title of your sheet music.
