Must be able to communicate well in English.
We are urgently looking for encoders who can encode songs in Music XML formats and Guitar Pro formats (GP5 and GP6). The software used to perform the encoding ie. Sibelius, Finale, or Guitar Pro does not matter as long as we can receive the deliverables in the appropriate output format.
We have two types of encoding needs:
1. Encoding using provided PDF music sheets
Songs in will need to be encoded using reference sheet music. Encoding should match the sheet music precisely with the exception that repeats and other factors may have to be expanded to include lyrics.
Attention will be required to audio playback as well, including correct instrument selection and effects.
Expectations will need to be set around hours required per song for encoding.
2. Interpretation of songs from audio or video
Songs will be encoded using only audio or video references and subject to interpretation of the encoder.
We will provide guidelines for the interpretation.
Songs should be interpreted to varying levels of difficulty - discussed per song.
Payment will depend on complexity of the song, number of tracks or instruments to be encoded, and the number of measures to be encoded.
Payment incentives will be provided for rapid turnaround time.
We need thousands of songs in our song store so this will be an ongoing project.
Encoders who are fast and can commit to our deadline will get more songs to encode.
