Transcription Exercises

Transcription exercises on Middy are a series of exercise designed to train you to hear a passage and be able to recreate it in the form of a midi file. You'll have to use a DAW (e.g. Ableton Live, Logic Pro) to recreate the passage and export it as a MIDI file. Then, upload your MIDI file to Middy to see how you did!
