## Answers to Questions (FAQ)

### What is a music sheet? (Definition)

A musical sheet is a transcription describing the music on a staff with notes (and other signs).

### How to read music notes?

The reading is based on solfeggio. dCode can convert a staff into notes by translating the most common 18 notes and their variation sharp # and flat b.

Example:

DO RE MI FA SOL LA SI C D E F G A B

dCode displays partitions with a treble key (usual for a piano) or a bass key and notes are all eight notes.

### Why noting A3 and A4?

In order to transcribe the different octaves, the note can be suffixed by its octave.

### What is an eight note?

The eighth note is the most represented note in music it has an oval head of solid black color. Its duration is defined as equal to half a quarter note (crotchet), a quarter of a half note (minim), and an eighth of a whole note (semibreve).

### Why are flat and sharp not aligned on the partition?

dCode has taken the liberty to simplify the writing of sharps and bemols, they are normally on the same level as their following note on the stave.

The type of note (eighth note, quarter note, half note) is not taken into account in the name of the note.

### How to convert a PDF file to notes?

The PDF format is not suitable for converting notes. It will probably be necessary to use visual recognition software (OCR type) to convert such a file.

A free solution is to manually copy the notes into dCode.

### How to convert notes to audio file?

Work is underway to enable this, in the meantime, it is not currently possible on dCode.

### How to find notes from music?

This work was generally reserved for musicians or people with a musical ear. However, today there is dedicated software (often paid) which attempts (with more or less success) to convert audio files (music or song) into notes/sheet music.
