I have Cubase Elements 9.5 and some months ago I recorded a piece in midi without quantisation. I decided to not use quantisation in Cubase to keep the sound realistic, because:
- it is contemporary classical music (so the rhythm is rather complex and some passage free)
- I want to publish this recording.
Then, I tried to import it in my notation software (Musescore), but of course, it is extremely messy rhythmically speaking…
I need to create the score for this piece ASAP because it will be performed. So, I am thinking of a strategy and looking for some suggestions in this regard.
In particular, I am wondering whether I can use different types of quantisation for different passages in Cubase and whether this is going a massive work if compared to re-recording the piece from scratch (the piece is complex and lasts 15-16 minutes).
My ultimate goal is to get a midi file that when imported in my notation software is not too messy in terms of rhythmic representation.
Alternatively, I am thinking of using Reaper, as it can export in MusicXML. So, in that case, I would do the quantisation of each passage or re-record jobs in Reaper.
